Hi there

I need help choosing some wheels for my crosscheck. Looking for durable set suitable for commuting, general riding... nothing uber light but certainly nothing tankish.

I am in Asia so Mavics and DT Swiss are less of an option than say Alex, Ritchey, WTB, Cane Creek etc. 28+ spoke action would be sweet.

Thanks

I like the Delgado Cross rims. They don't come in 28 however.

DELGADO™ CROSS

* 700c version of the Delgado, excellent choice for cross, touring bikes, and 29ers
* 22.5mm width, pinned and sleeved,
515 grams
* 32 or 36 hole, ERD 604
* Eyelet spoke holes
* Machined brake track
* Black or Silver

I have the Surly 135mm flipflop hub laced to the Salsa Delgado cross with DT spokes. Super durable, and I haven't had any problems tire wise running a 700x25, but I haven't tried anything smaller.

Another vote for Surly flip flop FW/Fix with Salsa Delgado Cross, from a 225lb guy who rides it everywhere!
