I have a Vuelta wheelset with XRP hubs. I got them off ebay 18 months (1500 miles) ago. My recollection is I paid around $100-150. I have had no complaints. However, I recently broke my second spoke.

Since I need to get a couple of spokes replaced anyway, my question is whether I should invest in getting all the spoke replaced with quality spokes, or would I be better off simply replacing the broken spokes and investing the cost of replacing all the spokes (front and rear wheels) in a new wheel set (<$250 budget off ebay because I don't have $100s to spend on a new wheelset)?

Can you put regular spokes in those? If so (and you like the hubs and rims) a good build with some double butted spokes would probably be fine. If not, I'd replace the spokes and sell them... and get something that will last and is servicable.
