    DT Swiss RR 1.2 wheelsets

    Was going to do with the Deep V's but it seems like everyone and their mothers have them so I want to try something different. Anyone riding these rims? I'm thinking about having a wheelset buit up on these rims. Solid rims? Any pics? Might have these laced up to Phil's.

    I haven't seen them built up as track wheels but there's no reason not to do it since they have a 32 hole version. I've ridden the 1.1s but not the 1.2s. From what I've read they are very sturdy and well built at a slightly lower price than the Mavics. I think they'd make a sweet build. go for it.

    I have 2 wheelsets with DT rims...both 1.1 and 1.2. They are IMHO the best rims you can buy....V's are not even in the same league.
    The key to happiness is not in having more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.

    Notice any difference other than single eyelet vs. double?

    Thanks man. I wonder how sturdy it would be with less than 32 since I weight 200 lbs.

    Where did you get these built up? I can't seem to find a place that offers a full wheelset with these rims.

    1.2s are amazingly nice rims. I'm going to lace a set to my Superbe Pro track hubs and CX-Xray spokes here in the next couple of months.

    And I don't believe there are any wheelsets that come with 1.2s. You have to have a custom build with them.

    Do you know who custom builds them? Or would it be better to just by the rims, hubs and spokes and let a local shop do it?

    I'm having a set of 28 hole 1.2s built to dura ace low flanges right now. I shopped around for any online builders that sold them along with a decent set of hubs but couldn't find any for a good price. I bought the rims and hubs separately and they're being built locally. I weigh 165 so we'll see how they hold up.

    Local build is your best bet.

    I actually found a place online that custom builds them. $500 for the set with Wood hubs.

    What is up with the animated woman on that site...very weird. Her lips don't match her voice and her boobs aren't positioned correctly. Creepy.

    Yeah the animation is really annoying but they have a excellent choice of rims and hubs. I have no clue if they're reliable though.

    i'm thinking of using the CX-Rays for my next wheel build. the cheapest i've found them is at universal cycles for $3.10 a spoke. did you find them cheaper?

    Nope, but since you are borrowing my spoke wrench we can probably order together

    A friend of mine at the shop/co-op I work at built some of these up for his road bike. He got them truer than any wheel I've ever seen in my life. Absolutely no hops, no wobbles, within clearances of significantly less than a mm. That says a lot about his skill as a wheelbuilder, but also about the quality of these rims.

    They've stayed true, too, even though he rides them really hard.

    Wheel builders I have spoken with say they are truly the easiest wheels ever to build. DT has very high tolerances.

    Try excelsports.com for a custom build. They are my LBS but are primarily a mail order outlet. I got my DT 1.1 wheels from them and they are great.
