So I destroyed a rear hub on a bargain wheelset--
The bike is mostly a foul weather commuter
and for roller riding. I got tired of adjusting cheap hubs a lot and I
threw down for a new rear wheel. Phil high flange laced to a deep v.
I didn't really care about the rim as long as it was durable. Weight isn't
a huge issue to me. I kinda wanted a low profile rim but the shop
seemed convinced that for low maintenance the velocity rims
were the way to go (32-hole). Just for the record what do folks
think the most durable rims are? I'm eventually going to
get a near front wheel. The rear is simple--silver hub
laced to black with silver spokes. Ain't goin for bling.
