There are, of course, versions of my question floating around the forum; I've searched but still would like to hear some advice.
I would like to take the plunge and have Peter White cycle build a wheel with a SON 28 (I am holding off for now on the rear wheel). I am wondering what rims to buy: Mavic A719, Open Pro, Velocity, etc? I am leaning towards 36 over 32 spoke (color choice is one small factor; I can get the 36 A719 in silver now). I like to ride on rough gravel/dirt as much as possible and am not concerned with the weight difference b/w 32 and 36.
Any thoughts? I might have left some variables out. Feel free if you must to comment on battery vs. dyno but that's not really what I'm asking about: I'd really like advice on rims.
Thanks and best wishes
