I bought what is called these days an entry level road bike, a Specialized Allez (Elite), hung with Tiagra from new and latterly 105 parts when they needed replacement. Wheels were DT Swiss or something, but they didn't like winter and died, so were replaced FOC for Shimano R501. They are absolutely fine. Could I do better?
I can see that wheel prices go from £50 to £2500.
If I am looking at a wheel upgrade, what price point should I be aiming for? Obviously a front pothole seeker that's dearer than the rest of the bike is silly.
And what, exactly, are the advantages of this fantastic upgrade?
What are the pitfalls? There's no such thing as a free lunch, everything has its compromises.
