I did 110kms with 1850m of climb on my single on Sunday and the wheels were fantastic. Topped out at 76kmh down a long hill, and the wheels inspired confidence as part of that package. A lihter wheelset will pay big dividends when climbing. You want to train roadie style with hills?
I have a 75kg friend who has had his for a few years. They have some other ProLite rims there too which seem comparable and are 30mm. Either way, with some slightly judicious spoke/hub/rim selection, you will come away with a kick bum set of SS wheels designed for hard training with a bit of quality about them, rather than an unnecessarily heavy set whose strength lies in its weight, rather than its considered construction. Unless you weigh more than 80, in which case, dont skimp on weight. Aim for around 1700. Just my 2c.
Thanks again Mr Golf, My weight fluctuates between 72-75 kilos. I like the idea of building a wheel up and since I read your thread I did a bit of research and bought a copy of Roger Mussons "The Professional Guide to
Since I am in no rush to complete my bike build (frame should arrive today) I figure learning how to do this will probably pay dividends over time more so with being able to true and maintain my own wheels. I will probably have to do some more research on rims as I would like to build something around a set of DuraAce HB 7600's which I think are 32/36 hole hubs.
