    Need Rim suggestion

    I'm having a rear wheel built with a nexus 8 internal hub (36 hole) and need rim suggestions. Size is 26" and I usually run 2.1" tires. I ride mostly road and gravel path with a little off road. The bike has V-brakes. Price in the +/- $50 range.

    Thanks

    How much do you weigh? What does your builder recommend? There's so many choices:

    IGH's, Dyno Hubs, LED lights and old frames

    I weigh 210. The builder recommended an Alex DX32 which is strong but weighs 770 grams. I'm looking for something lighter.

    On sale for $20 at universal cycles. Outstanding "bulletproof" rim, weight (565g) is reasonable considering their strength.
