    These definitely ain't mine, but.I found them in our Marketplace: Good Finds ONLY!

    I thought some of you might be interested.....

    There's a member got a nice set of Deep V's in the Marketplace, hand built by Peter White. Just passing it along where it might do the most good.

    Let's try to keep this thread going, by the way. As you find a CLydeworthy deal, feel free to post it. Don't post your own stuff, though. Thanks.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    "We've had Clydes in the 400 pound category ride Deep V's successfully, with no spoke breakage"
    Be interesting to see some documentation on this claim.... how many 400 types ride enough miles to give a rim enough miles to tell? No flame meant... but having a bike for a length of time means nothing... hard to get any meaningful test collecting dust.

    "Peter White is a hell of a good wheel builder"... No dispute at all... but a 28 in front for a 400 type? I'm a 'lite Clyde' (240's) and have never broke a spoke on the front using entry level rims. (>10,000 Mi) Dumping coin into the front wheel isn't prudent too often... as noted... 'having the $$ at the time'... yet a 28 on the front is asking for trouble later.

    IMO.. the BIG Clydes would be well served to get ONE good rear hub... use a 48 hole with straight guage stainless on a Dyad or similar velocity rim.. 26" makes the most sense for ultimate strength.. but few go to 48 hole. Then.. get the thing maintained.. get the spoke tension checked early on and watch it. Means someone within easy access.. a local.. there's many over the country side who can build a good rim yet don't self promote much. The many riding do not comprehend the heavy weight problems on a rear rim.... one size does not fit all. Build it as strong as possible.... the most cost efficent route.. over the long haul.

    Nice looking wheels
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.
