I'm gonna build up a wheelset soon and i want to make a
set of wheels that will last me as long as possible
with minimal maintainance.
-here's whats decided:
-brass nipples (cause alloy corodes to spokes over time)
-silver spokes double butted spokes (for flexibility)
-phil wood hubs (ugly but nearly bulletproof)
-no brake machining
-no silver rims
-i'd like them to be white ideally, but black is good if
function manages to outweigh aesthetics
-don't really want deep Vs cause i'm pretty sick of em
what i want to know:
-has anyone tried open pro CDs? what is the finish like?
does it hold up to nicks and scratches well?
-do velocity fusions come in white?
-it there a difference in durability between high flange and
low flange phills? is there a major weight savings?
-how does radial compare to 3 cross?
if anyone has any suggestions or experience with similar wheelsets let me know
