I've been contemplating building up a wheelset with a box section rim but I don't have any experience with them. Some rims I've been looking into were the H+Son TB14's and the obvious Mavic OP's. I'm not concerned with weight either just durability and reliability, taking into consideration the wheels are built properly. Any thought on any other box section rims available in the market that would be applicable to track? I'm also interested how the width's will come into factor? TB14-> 23mm and the OP's->19.6mm

I've been using a set of Araya Gold's for a few years now as track training/local racing wheels with no issues. But I'm only about 175-180 lbs.

Velocity A23's even come in NMSW, as well as a tubular counterpart, Major Toms.
