Well my Fall project seems to be slowly turning into a winter project. I'm rebuilding an older road bike and I'm looking to get some new wheels built to better suit my 230lbs. I'll be rebuilding the Shimano 600 hubs with new bearings.
Anyways, I am looking to keep the classic 700c road rim look (lower profile) with a stronger modern rim...while not spending too much. (I'd like to keep it under $100 for the pair, the lower the better.)
As far as tires go, the bike originally came with 23's but I have the feeling I am going to need to go bigger. Would a 28 in the rear and 25 up front be more suitable? I'd like to keep gumwalls on it. Thanks in advance!
