    Need to replace deep v's, recommendations?

    Should it be Mavic open pros or some other velocity product, or? I just want simple, light and strong and don't need any colors.

    Miche makes decent sealed hubs for relatively cheap. Dia Compe's are also pretty nice for the price. If you've got the money Phil's are really nice and always popular. Dura-ace if you want that NJS ish, but they have loose ball bearings.

    That's what I wanted to know, Phil's or Dura Ace. I like the look of Phil's better as long as they don't weigh too much. I am not a weight weenie so Phil, come on down.

    Go for a rim with eyelets, open pro, rr1.1's, etc. I just built up some open pro's but have not got them rolling yet, they are on low flange phil's with dt swiss double butted spokes, I'm pretty excited

    Wait...so you are concerned with weight or aren't you? You write about wanting a light rim, but then offer Phil Wood hubs as an option. Aren't those on the tubby side of hub weights?

    Why are you replacing your rims in the first place?

    And why are you limiting your options to Phil Wood or Dura Ace hubs? You like the "look"...you might also like the "feel" of unnecessarily burning your money.

    IRD Cadence/Niobium 30 rims are a good option at 30mm deep, 440 grams, high quality. DT Swiss RR 1.1 and 1.2 are the only better made rims than Open Pros.

    I did contradict myself on having light weight and then Phil's. I just got excited about the look of Phil's. I checked out Miche and Dia Compe and they look nice.

    I am changing wheels to go with a white frame. Black V's are a nice look but I want white and chrome on this build.

    If you go Miche, their cogs/lockrings are a proprietary setup

    Miche cogs are a unique system but the system is not proprietary, it still goes by all the normal standards for track gear. You can use the Miche hub with any cog.

    That being said...Miche hubs are a bit on the tubby side too.
