Looking for some suggestions from experience wheel builders.
I am looking to built my first wheel. I got a Shimano dynohub DH-3N80 for Christmas(32 holes). I weigh 185-195 lbs. and I like stiff wheels. I am trying to decide between Mavic Open Pro / or slightly stronger CXP33 and Velocity Fusion rims. I would like to use a silver rim , but Fusion is hard to get in silver. I am not a weight wienie, but I do not want a heavy rim at the same time.
Also what spokes should I get: Wheelsmith DB14 or Sapim race or DT competition spokes with brass nipples?
