It has been a while since I asked about building my first set of wheels. The rear took me about 12 hours and then the front about 6 hours, but I am really happy with the result.

This is a very reasonable piece of training equipment. Kudos. Perfect balance between durability and price in choice of components. And well done. When you get another couple of wheelsets done, your 18 hours of work will get down to 3-4 hours.

Thanks everyone!

I am already thinking about building my next wheelset. The ultegra/DT-Swiss one is on my commuter, and on my good bike I have carbon tubulars wheels. It is quite fiddly whenever I want to use the turbo trainer. I prefer to use the good bike with it, since it has a powermeter, but carbon tubulars are not the best option so usually i have to swap cassettes and wheels on the two bikes each time. I was thinking to build a clincher aluminum wheelset for the good bike, mainly for the turbo trainer, but also when I am travelling with the bike and don't have the luxury of gluing tubulars in case of a flat. Here is my rough plan:

- Front hub: I have a nice 94gr front radial 24H FRM that I would like to use.
- Rear hub: I was thinking about something solid, but not too heavy, and with 28H at around $150. I can unfortunately find the DT 350 only with 32H. Any ideas/recommendations?
- Spokes/Nipples: Most likely I will go with DT Competitions and ProLock nipples again.
- Rims: I want to run the wheels with 25mm or 28mm tires. What would you recommend?

Thanks bm0p700f. Another Rim idea I have is Mavic open pro UST. What do you think of these for my purpose? Seem a bit wider and lighter and I do like the looks.

The mavic OP UST rim is a good one. It is the only other alloy rim apart from the kinlin tubeless rims that I really like. everything else is just too expensive.

For cheap and good, I like the DT 460 a lot. I had no problem whatsoever to go tubeless with them, and so did a friend (I use Maxxis Padrone, he uses Hutch Sector). I think I paid 70 GBP for a pair of rims, which is excellent value. They even have tasteful decals... what's not to like?

being out of round. had more than one and I dont buy many of them and if I want to warranty it I have to pay to send it back to TF tuned and that cost me. in otherwords not worth it. Given the number I have not been happy with with (0.8mm out of round or greater) I wont buy them any more.

The disc brake rim is not round or straight unlike the kinlins. So for me there is alot not to like. I have some sussy customers so for me it is simply not worth it.

Not worth it for you. Chances are the "home builder" will get a good round pair and build some excellent wheels at a very reasonable price. Building in volumes presents a different set of problems from building a pair of wheels for your own use

Anyone know the diameter of TB14's rim holes? I'm building a new wheelset (SP SV-8 28h in the front and DA 7900 32h rear) and would like to try veloplugs (anything against them btw?)

you wont get veloplugs to fit in any double eyelted rim securely. use tubeless tape if you want to save weight.

28 spoke build with a dynohub is a mistake. I did on recently 32H sapim race with DT RR411 BD rim. It was really flexy never again.

32F with the TB14 and sapim race spokes or plain gauge and you will have something that will be fine. drop the spoke count or use thin spokes and the risk of the wheel going out of tru or worse a spoke failing goes up.

Don't think you can, the rim is doubly eyeletted.

I'm building a carbon clincher wheelset for the first time and was wondering if I should be using nipple washers. Will it make a big difference durability wise?

I would... the tiny Sapim HM or whatever they are called are easy to fit and minimally invasive... they weigh nothing too
