    California? Call Rich at wheelbuilder.com. He is good enough that Phonak among others rode his wheels... :cool:

    Sell it an upgrade. I had one also just like you and 2 months ago I sold mine on ebay for $850 and bought an 07 Tarmace Expert on Craigslist for $1600 in excellent condition. The money you'd spend on wheels you could spend on upgrading to another bike that that Allez Elite will never be, trust me. I just went thru the same thing. A Tarmac is quicker, faster, and rides better, its just a better bike.

    Intetesting site in that he doesn't use Mavic rims and his prices are pretty normal retail. Plus he doesn't mention shimano or Campagnolo hubs.

    I guess he can build wheels but there are bike shops around that do the same thing, well, and 'may' have more choices, like hubs and some rims. Just an observation.
