Just curious as to how many wheelset do you have?

I have one all rounder - tufo nexus primus on dt 240 hubs, sapim cx-ray and kinlin rims.

Second wheelset is the same except with FMB super mud on them.

one old dura ace hubset lace to reflex rim with older tufo tubies for a pit wheelset.

Too many!

Seriously, we have like 9... it's stupid. 4 sets of carbon hoops and 4 aluminum. The aluminum rarely get used... but you can never sell them for a decent price, so we just hold onto them and have a crap load of different tires glued up. Two sets of record hubs, two da hubs, variety of rims (velocity, ambrosia, mavic).

Carbon front we have two C24 DA wheelsets, one C50 DA, an Edge, and a Reynolds 46.

Wife runs Campy 11 and I run Sram. Luckily, we can put a Shimano 10 wheel on her bikes and they shift perfectly in a pinch.

All FMBs except one new set of the Specialized Tracer tires... which are surprisingly nice.

Three Velocity Major Tom tubular wheelsets. One set w/ Challenge Grifo/Fango combo. One set with Vittoria XM tires for mud. One set with Vittoria XN filetreads for dry/grass/sand races.

Then one set of Velocity A23 clinchers set up tubeless with what ever flavor of the week tire I'm trying out for training.

The Rhinos are a must on days like Saturday. The Typhoons are a souped up Girfo and good all rounder. The softer casing are what makes a Dugast a Dugast.
