I've got 2 Halo track hubs, 24hole, looking for recommendations for a suitable rim for Velodrome use? I only weigh 61kg so not heavy on wheels.

DT Swiss R460's look a good price, not too light either which hopefully means they're a bit more durable...also looked at the RR511 which is apparently very durable but they're twice the price! Anyone have any experience of these rims for this usage or any recommendations?

Cheers.

Clincher?

Track is the only place where tubulars would be an option for me, but I'd probably still use clinchers just because.

Which tires do you want to run?

Personally I'd go for old school narrow Kinlins + Veloflex Record probably.

Sorry, meant to say clinchers. They're just for training. Cheers. Would probs want to use Vittoria Pista's, just 'cos I love Vittoria's on the road more than anything :noidea:

If you're not worried about weight you could look at something like the H+Son Formation Face. No brake track and 42mm deep so would look great, be fairly aero and very strong. Only drawback is they're >600g.

Kinlin XR31 would look good. Slightly deeper and more aero than a standard clincher and build up reasonably stiff.
