Sending in my wheels for a rebuild

Today I am sending in my hubs to Peter White for a wheel rebuild. It will come in at around $300 for 2 new wheels built in Mavic Open Pro rims. My hope is that this will eliminate the problems I have had with my tubular tires, which are very expensive and hard to replace, and really not made for a guy who attached a kid trailer to a road bike and rides it to work down Broadway.

The picture below is not my actual wheels, but I thought it looked fascinating. This must have ended up being a little painful for rider involved. As in, "ouch, my wallet hurts."
