At the end of this season I am thinking about switching to tubular for a lighter wheelset and better suppleness from the tubular tire. I currently use a pmp/dt rev/Excellight combo front and rear which is excellent, smooth hubs, serviceable. Tires I have switched from Veloflex Black to Vittoria SC which are more supple and give slighter wider volume.

I love the hubs and would simply get them rebuilt with DT rev spokes and either F20 rims or Corima Winium rims (28 F, 32 R). The F20's are a known quantity, fairly light, good braking surface, look propper pro. The Winium is much lighter and the UK distributor now sells rim only. Does anyone have any experience of the Winium rim?

I would go for the F20 rims. The Corima is not quite as strong as compared to the F20 and braking performance on my previous set of Corima rims was very poor in the wet.

Winium and other Corima rims are used by pro riders. They are fine rims.
