    I purchased a 2006 Trek 1200 in late August and I'm looking to replace
    the stock Alex AT450 with a lighter and better set of wheels. Can
    anyone recommed a good set of wheels that won't break the bank?

    Thanks Chachi,

    This may be a stupid question but how much better are Mavic Open
    Pro/Ultegra rims compared to the Alex AT450's / Tiagra hubs? I'm new to
    road bikes so I still have lots to read and learn.

    Bontrager Race Lite 700c wheelset, with Ultegra 12-23 cassette.
    Mileage unknown, but judging from the brake surface, I would estimate
    less than 1000 miles. Round and true. Very good condition. $235 plus

    Front: Bontrager low flange sealed bearing hub, black, laced to 23mm
    black eyeletted rim with 20 paired black bladed spokes.

    Rear: Bontrager rear hub (labeled as Race Lite by DT Swiss), black,
    laced to 21mm black eyeletted rim with 24 paired black bladed spokes.
    Rear rim has offset spoke hole configuration resulting in a stronger

    Wheelset comes with Bontrager rim strips, Bontrager skewers, and
    Ultegra 12-23 9 speed cassette. Cassette has a few hundred miles -
    excellent condition.
