I'm looking for a new rear wheel. In the price range of around $180 or less. Wanted to know what you guys think of these two wheels or maybe something similar.

Can't go wrong with either or. I run the Cinema vx2 wheels and they are good to me and I ride very heavy

I can't speak for their newer stuff but their hubs from 3-4 years ago were garbage. Skipped all the time and the drivers blew out on every one I saw. They may have improved since, I've heard nothing about the newer stuff.

I got the toungsten wheelset on a bike I bought used. The rear hub had a bad driver bearing. I bought two new ones and I was surprised how quickly one of them went bad again. But that's a used one and I have no clue how much it was beat on before I got it.

I appreciate the last sentence, and to mention, a slightly bent axle could cause bearings to go out.

Thanks guys for the feedback. I'm leaning more to the zx now. But I also found a colony back wheel that seems pretty good. What do you guys think?

You could build a solid wheel for the cost of that Pintour.

I would consider going custom wheel for that.

Also check Empire and Albes.

I checked out Albes. Had some great stuff. I'm thinking of getting a custom with the cult match v.2 cassette, cinema 777 rim, and primo spokes. Comes out to around 170 with shipping.
