This would be a pretty typical budget (but still good) wheel for a loaded tourer around 200lbs rider weight.

or for an overweight guy riding empty on that blue hybrid in my last post, eh? :)

so $200 for that pair is a pretty good deal, from what all I can see?

my frame has a 135mm BDC so that eliminates most road wheels. I just wish those came in black (the A319s' do but it doesn't look like handspun has them)

they have a whole line of these 'pavement' wheels aimed at touring/trekking/commuter bikes.
