Just one of many things IMHO.
Having a wife who does not really understand the cycling bug (oh, she makes all the right noises, but I know she thinks I'm a kangaroo short in the top paddock for riding distances she won't drive) can make life hard when you're trying to explain that a HRM is a MANDATORY piece of equipment for riding. And one set of wheels/tyres is never enough, let alone one bike (let's see, I need a roadie, MTB for fun in the mud, a commuter/trainer so I don't wear the roadie out, at least two sets of tyres for each, and possibly more for the roadie, plus additional wheels).
Gosh, no wonder she thinks I'm nuts.

When he divorces you, don't forget that some of us ancient 'unmarriagables' understand your carbon fetish

The idea of a custom set of wheels certainly interests me, but for browsing i just wish the info was a bit more accessible.
Without doubt there is a simple and reasonable explanation for this, which is why i query

Never thought much about custom wheels before, always bought off the shelf, 'spose it's more a roadie thing...
