I would trust Light Bicycles wheelsets.
At close to $1000. You'll get a nice wheelset with reliable rims ( lots of mtb'ers are running them) with DT240s hubs. And 1 yr warranty.
At your weight I'd go 45mm rims ( 120 kg weight limit) for an all round set, maybe 55 mm if you want more profile. Check for custom wheelsets.
Because of the construction type of tubular rims ( no added "hook"), they would be both pretty solid IMO. If that's what you mean by " size chart".
Veloflex Vlaanderen tubs would be super on the 45 mm set .
practice putting the tub on the rim with no glue so you get a feel for it and can see if you will need to stretch the tubs
make sure rim is ***clean*** no grease or mould release compound, on a new carbon rim i use very fine steel wool to lightly scour the surface to remove release compound, then wipe with acetone on clean cloth
make sure basetape is free of grease, wipe with acetone on clean cloth is ok
use vittoria mastik one glue, it is the best
there are many online guides, videos etc., there are different styles, number of layers, order of application etc., they all will work ok

Have you got your wheels yet?53cxzero wrote: ↑Wed Mar 28, 2018 4:31 pmHello, again; I got Farsports 50X25 , Swiss DT 350 hubs, wheelset. They had 20% off March sale. The Veloflex Vlaanderen tires are coming. So I had a question or two. I have read alot on gluing up tubulars on this site and others. Is there a gluing up tubulars for dummies book out there, Which, tape, which glue etc. Or should I go to a shop, one man show ,nice guy, drink coffee and watch him do it? Also for the 50mm depth what valve extensions shold I buy? Best, to you and yours; Robert ;; If there is a step by step guide, show me!!!
I'm thinking of exactly the same, 50x25mm, DT350 straight pull.
