If you mean M5 33 grams front hubs like I have are not durable, they are light and good looking but durable for everyday riding. No.

Hey all,
I live and ride in the mountains of Japan, especially the Japanese alps and would like to build a set of tubulars for everyday riding which includes lots of mountain passes and descents.
I want to avoid carbon rims on this build due to high possibility of wet conditions or snow in the early/ lat parts o the year.

What do you guys recommend ?

I'm thinking ambrosio cronos 28f 32r laced 2 or 3x front and rear, sapim laser or a mix of revolution front, comp and rev mix rear, al nipples on tune mig70 mag 170.

I weigh around 65-69kg depending on the time of year.


Don't have personal experience, but it seems to me there's probably not a lot of choice. BHS have been good to deal with and they carry an alloy tubular rim http://www.bikehubstore.com/category-s/171.htm

I am looking to buy a light weight clincher wheelset OR make one. if anybody has ideas I highly appreciate it.
getting tired of going to oem websites and not really finding what I would like to have, the goal would be to
find a 700c clincher wheelset that is under 1200 grams at a reasonable price under 1k bucks.

I have seen some low profile chinese carbon clinchers that are below 1200g. Check light-bicycle and farsports.
Extralight makes the hyperclinch wheels which are also in that range, using Stans aluminium rims but probably won't meet your price.

But unless you are doing an uphill only race, reasonably light aero wheels will have a greater speed benefit.

Well from Bikehubstore.com you can put together a 1,234g wheelset for $275.

Kinlin XR200, Lasers, alloy nipples and their lightest hubs will get you there.

The problem is that most 1200 gram wheels are not going to be suitable except for the lightest of riders. Unless your 120 pounds or don't care about performance you should look closer to the 1300 gram range.

While I'm aware they may not weigh under 1300g, Dura ace c24 is really the answer to this entire thread or anyone looking for a lightweight reliable clincher.

If you could take the C24 rims and lace them to some light hubs, it would be perfect. The heavy DA hubs ruin that wheelset.

The biggest "damage" is done on "paper" or the scale, though. 100g difference of hub weight is not the same as 100g of rim weight.

Did you just marginalize weight on weightweenies in a thread about lighter weight clinchers? Perhaps you should post on roadbikereview and leave us alone.

Considering a light build that needs to be able to survive travelling and racing in Belgium, Australia and possibly Asia.

What sort of strength can I expect from the bikehubstore offerings? Enough to withstand the uses I have in mind?

I built a set of 24/28 kinlin xr-200s and dati hubs w/sapim laser on all but the drive side, where I put races.

It has been very durable, and very light, but given that you are a pro, you might want to go full cxray and xr-270 to make it a bit stiffer.

I do fully recommend BHS, Brandon is a great guy with great prices.
