I finally managed to get hold of a NOS 1982 Colnago Super with just just cosmetic wear. I am planning to make a modern build with 10 spd Campagnolo Veloce set with Ultrashift gearshifters and Ultratorque crankset, 3T stem, seatpost, handlebars and a San Marco Regale saddle.
For wheels I am thinking of making a handbuilt set with :
Ambrosio Zenith Hubs
Ambrosio Nemesis Rims
Sapim CX-Ray Spokes
with 32/36 spokes front/rear wheel. My budget is 400-500 Euros max and the other 2 options I have is
Flo 30 Wheelset (Clydesdale 28/28 spokes) (so hard to get a pair ... orders finish in 2-3 mins when preorder is open)
Campagnolo Zonda 2013 (18/21 spokes) (low count for my size?)
I am using a set of DA C24 on the bike I use now. I weight 93 kilos and i am 1.92 m
My question is should I go a custom wheelset or a factory set ?
I am doing 70-120 km weekend rides with friends to keep fit for 200-300 audaxes we are doing.
I would like the bike to be able to climb ... we got 2 audaxes with 3200m and 4000m in 2 months ...
I would go with Campagnolo Record hubs 32h front and rear with silver CX-ray spokes and then an all silver rim of your choice.
The choices are :
Flo 30s (Clydesdale)
Ambrosio Nemesis with Record Hubs and DT Swiss Double or Triple Butted spokes (silver)
Campagnolo Neutron Ultra
One week till decision is made and cash gone budget 500 euros ...
Two times crossed front and three times crossed at the back wheel.
But do not use cx or cx-ray. Because of the spoke length (298/300 at the back wheel) the wheel will not be stiff enough.
D-lite at the front and back left side and race at the drive side will give you a perfect result and a classy look.
