So my rear wheel is shot after only 1500 miles but it was stock and heavy as hell so no real loss there. However, the inevitable replacement questions come up. First and foremost only the rear is gone (3 broken spokes in two weeks) so I checked out the LBS and could get a Mavic Open Pro Rear w/Ultegra Hub for $120.00. However Ebay shows some potentially promising leads...

also, for slightly more would

be better or maybe

Any other suggestions for under roughly $160 are welcome. I do Junior races and ride daily and weigh anywhere from 155 to 160 depending on the day and the scale.

Thanks a Bundle,
Jonny

Go with the LBS Open Pro on Ultegra. They'll be as light as these Ebay wheels and more comfortable and durable. Handbuilt is way better than any of the cheaper pre builts.
