H Plus Son SL42, 32 Spoke with 105 hubs???

What do you think for a 225lb rider?

I ordered and got a set of Velocity Deep V's (32/105) but they had a pock mark develop by a spoke hole on the side of one of the rims...Took them in for 200 mile checkup and the LBS I deal with called Velocity.

Velocity will replace them but are out of 32 hole rims at the moment and I cant ride til they show up which could be a week or 2....

LBS I bought the Velocity's from has a set of H PLUS SON SL42's just built hanging in the shop, 32 spoke with 105 hubs...They are more money than my Velocites were but they are willing to do a even swap for me since I have bought stuff from them.

What do u guys think?

Even swap for H Plus vs my Velocities?

HplusSons came out as fixie/track wheels. I don't see a problem seeing them on the geared bike as long as they have the machined braking surface. The wheels are porky though. Maybe 1/2lb heavier then the DeepVs wheelset but deeper so will be easier to maintain speeds over 20mph The DeepVs cost $55 per rim, the SL42s are around $75-80 per rim.

I'd go for the trade and try them out. Worst case sell them and get another set of DeepVs

They look really nice and r white...(acutally they r alittle lighter)
My bike is black and my tires are red/black...

We threw them on and the bike looks insane, really looked good
2 other guys there riding carbon bikes had the same SL42's and use them for training and said, they rock

I think I am gonna take them tomorrow

Ended up getting better rims for no extra money, sometimes things work out for the better
