New Wheels for Vintage Bike
I've been refurbishing a mid 80s Falcon 105 with Reynolds 531. The rims are Mavic Rimtec and a little rusty around the eyelets, decent shape I guess, but thinking of building up some new wheels, and while I'm at it finding some Dura Ace hubs (freewheel, 7-speed) for them, or other high-quality hubs.
My question is what are some good rims to look for. I'm 185 and ride on smooth roads 20 to 35 miles for fitness everyday (almost), will use 25mm tires, like going fast (for me). I'd like New rims, more sport than bomb-proof, 32 hole?, vintage look not necessary, but not crazy aero looking, @ $75 or less each.
I'm not sure how much I'll gain doing this (I know I'll lose $200) or if the current Mavic/105 hubs are good enough.
Thanks for suggestions.
Get off my lawn!
^ nice choice, pretty bomb proof. 32H is fine, I'm 240 and ride 28H rims in the NE where roads aren't always so great.
