Boyd vs Psimet Velocity Major Tome/Bitex build
As you can tell from my past few threads, I'm trying to make the most informed decision possible with respect to my first cross tubular wheel set purchase.
I've decided that I'm going aluminum. I've narrowed my choice down to a Velocity Major Tom build from either Boyd or Psimet.
Lets look at the Bitex hub option from both suppliers:
Boyd - Major Tom/Bitex Hub, *EDIT* 24/28 Black Sapim CX Ray, Brass nipples - $550
Psimet - Major Tom/Bitex Hub, 24/28 DT Comp, Brass nipples - $399
Why the price difference? I'm not trying to stir the pot here. I know both Boyd and Psimet are well respected here and I don't doubt the quality of work and customer service. I've emailed them both and have had very good communication experiences thus far. I'm just curious about the best bang for my buck.
Thanks very much.
