So what's a good compromise, staying on the side of stiffness?
I think the Montreal is a bit lighter than the GP4; also thinking that Race spokes all around would be a bit much for a 36 spoke wheel.
What would you select?
I have a set of DT240 hubs (28/32) that I am planning on building up. Given the higher spoke count I am thinking that a shallow box rim might look good. I currently weigh 85kg (on the way back down) and generally ride rolling hills, sometimes on rough roads.
I like the look and weight of the Kinlin XR19-W but I am open to other suggestions as the there is not much choice at the local shops I have looked at other than Mavic Open Pro or Alex rims.
How about Stans 340s?
Personally I prefer larger section stiffer rims such as XR270s as they make stronger wheels for a minimal weight penalty.
I am 190lbs, ride in the Northeast (MA, VT, NH, ME). Hills, potholes, bridge expansion joints, etc are all on my rides. Wheels will go on a Tarmac SL2 if that matters.
I do mostly training, club, and Triathlon (Sprint, Olympic and Hal distances) rides. I will be doing a few centuries this summer, and at least one ride of 150M.
I am not married to any brand, I do want all black, loud free hub (yes its obnoxious but I like it), and aluminum clinchers.
Budget is $1000 or less (unless you can somehow convince me that going higher would change my life when i get on my bike)
Any rim with a depth of >= 25mm, or Off Centre Rim (OCR), will work with the DT240 hubs (28/32) and produce a good road wheelset.
The thoughts by Jason/Fairwheel and Eric Gottesman/Ergott wheels are quite good and helpful, don't you think so ...
Eric's Kinlin XR270 and Stans 340s are good suggestions as are Pacenti SL23, H+Son Archetype, and Kinlin XC-279 ... it's good to have choices especially when the choices are all good
What wheelset do you plan to build with these hubs ... especially the rear hub
