Got some bad news from my LBS last night that my rear wheel(Dura Ace 7800) is cracked. The wheel only has around 7000 miles on it. Would like to re-use the hub on it to build another wheel. Looking for suggestions, Wheel, spokes. My weight is around 190 and ride on roads that are normally in good shape and I do a fair amount of climbing.

Looks like 20 spokes, straight pull. 20 spokes on the rear for a 190 pound rider might be asking a bit much.

Also, these look to be hubs that have the nipples at the hub rather than at the rim. Apparently, the rims do exist and you might be able to get your LBS to order a replacement for you. Of course, you may be looking to do this all over again in another 5K miles.....
