Wheel Shopping

My rear wheel (Bontrager Race) has gotten into the habit of getting out of true, so I'm looking for a new one.  My price range is <$200 for just a rear, and <$350 if I buy a pair (the front is fine, but I have a bit of OCD and such so I like things to be the same Very Happy ).  I'm looking at maybe a Mavic Aksium right now ($140), but I'm going to search around a bit more.  Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  Most people have a little bit of it.

Funny you should say that about your rear, both my Race and Race Lites keep going out of true. Had my Race Lite done 2 weeks ago and it's wobbling again. A guy I work with it fairly in the know, and he swears by Askiums for winter. Calls them disposable wheels.

Forza, I had a pair of Easton EA90 SLs with which I was very pleased.  Might be just a bit expensive, but the Easton EA50 SL should be in your price bracket.  Hand built wheels and lighter than your Bontranger Race.

Forza,

Nashbar has a deal on Rolf Apex wheels. I've never used Rolf's, but the guys at my local bike shop really like them. Its $340 for the pair, normally $700.

Rolf

Also some good deals right now on a couple of others (Shimano).

All pairs

You'll need to act quickly. These deals only last a couple of days.
EDIT:
The Rolf's may be a one day sale for today only.
