Where to learn about wheels

Hi all,

I’ve been trying to do some research about road wheel sets but I’m getting overloaded with information, I have no idea where to start! Does anyone know of a good beginner’s resource where I can actually learn about what to look for in rims, spokes, etc?


Jobst Brandt book The Bicycle Wheel. Only book I know about wheel that is accurate. Lots of marketing info out there. Last half of book is engineer type info.

Google Sheldon Brown’s website, it is a great source of information on wheels and everything else bike related.
