    vibration and wheels

    thinking of getting a deep v wheelset for an aluminium frame, do bigger rims absorb road vibrations and lessen it?

    The frame and the tububulars, clincher or what ever u use there does the trick, but the wheels help a lot anyways...

    Extra deep rims and really high flange hubs get you closer and closer to having no spokes at all, which would be a solid metal wheel.

    If you want to absorb road vibration, you want longer spokes. shallow rims and low flange hubs would be the ticket.

    Not only spoke length matters, but obviously, the higher vertical profile means greater vertical stiffness (much like oversize tubes being stiffer). So a deep profile rim has a harsher ride. Not good.

    You want as low radial stiffness as possible while maintaining lateral one for cornering.
    Scroll down to the last table.

    they increase it, but you won't notice. +1 on low flange for comfort, but i doubt high flange will make it any worse and boy, is high flange hot.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width
