After breaking yet another spoke on my current wheels - entry-level Spec Allez wheels, Alex DA-16 rims on no-name hubs - I'm after a set of decent handmade wheels.
I'm looking at approaching Harry Rowland to build me a set using Ambrosio hubs, which should give an indication of the level of wheel I'm after, nothing bank-breaking but hopefully of reasonable quality.
I'm not sure of either the spoke count or rim I should be after, and would appreciate any recommendations on both these things. I'm heavy (16 1/2 stone - eta: around 230 lb for US readers) and ride a 55 mile round commute twice a week, I don't race although I'd prefer something reasonably light it's not the be-all and end-all.
All advice gratefully received, as would a rough estimate of cost (for UK readers!)
Thanks in advance.
