I have a new Giant Propel with a set of Zipp 303 wheels. I like to use the Zipps to be my racing wheels. Is there a set of training wheels out there that have rims almost as wide as the 303's? It is hard to adjust the brakes on the Propel when changing wheelsets.

Thanks.

What about 101s or Flo30s? They are probably wide enough to make it work....

101's have been dropped apparently, they couldn't justify the increase in price over the 30's

Thank you everyone. Dimension at the center of the brake track:

Zipp 101 is 22.98 mm
Zipp 303 is 26.4 mm
Flow 30 is 24 to 25.82 mm

Might be getting closer with the flow. I am not sure about the velocity yet.

H Plus Son has a rim that is 32 mm. Too wide for what I need. The rest of them are not wide enough. Thanks anyway.

It's the Hed Ardennes Plus that's slightly over 25mm wide.

I've been looking at Mavic A119 or A719. 24mm wide @ 540g (a119) 567g(a719)
*(manuf. weight)*
Touring rims, but there's nothing really available over 23mm wide that's cheap.

The HED wheels are nice, but price is kind of high for a set of training or spare wheels for when I race. I'll keep looking.

The SL23 could be a good option at 24mms. The new Hed Ardennes could be a good way to go as well all though I have yet to ride that new hoop.
