Which rim depth for which conditions??

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

Hi guys,

If you were setting out from scratch with the plan of getting your ideal cx wheel set-up, what depth rim would you chose for what conditions, so for instance:

Conditions
Hard dry fast (Pipistrello)
All round (Typhoon)
Full on mud (Rhino)

Rim depth
Shallow (202, 1.25)
Mid (303, EC90 SL)
Deep (404, EC90 SL Aero, 1.45)

Thanks
Norty

Just use a 303/404 type depth for everything then your covered for cutting through sand/snow/mud...really can't see why you need to worry about anything else.
