My rear wheel on my road bike has developed a nasty looking crack, necessitating a new purchase. The guy at Evans (only bike shop open today near me) suggested I get a Mavic http://www.evanscycles.com/products/mavic/2012-aksium-rear-wheel-ec03331 as it would suit my needs. I rode 3500km last year, 90% of which was commuting on potholey roads. I'll probably end up stumping up for the Mavic but wondered if anyone has any advice on a good, cheap(ish) wheel for commuting. Speediness it not a major consideration and can be sacrificed for sturdiness.
Any suggestions/recommendations would be most welcome.
