I am considering a set of Velocity Aerohead built up with Ulterga hubs. My question is more about the spokes I was just going to go with standard double butted spokes, but the builder I think I may have build these up also recommended C-X ray spokes, an hundred dollar upgrade. My question is it worth it? I weight ~190 and ride between 125 to 200 miles a week with some pretty good hills. These will be my everyday wheels and I do not race. Are the X ray spoke worth the extra cake?

Thanks
Henry

get the sapim "race" or dt swiss "competitions" or wheelsmith db15 spokes are probably the most extreme for your needs or build with the standard 14/15 spoke. Whatever you do put double butted spokes on your build, straight guage spokes would be a waste of a build opportunity. read former threads http://forums.roadbikereview.com/showthread.php?t=54405&highlight=light+wheels+heavy+rider , (good explanation of spoke in this thread) http://forums.roadbikereview.com/showthread.php?t=44910&highlight=light+wheels+heavy+rider and or http://forums.roadbikereview.com/showthread.php?t=24116&highlight=light+wheels+heavy+rider . Just type in light wheels heavy rider or cydlsdale in the search window and this topic will pop up.
