    Originally a black CXP22/Formula set from bicyclewheels.com - I can't/couldn't get the cog off the back (fixed/free) so I had a new back wheel built up with an IRO hub and a Velocity aerohead, so I run that on the back now. The new wheel and hub are silver/silver, so it's a mash up now with the black/black on the front. 36h front/32h rear (formerly 36h rear).

    I put a lot of abuse/use into the Mavic/Formula set, for $150 they've been worth every penny and perhaps more. Totally kickass street wheels, and not once had to get them trued (though I will need to replace the hub bearings once the spring is fully here, winter and my lack of maintenance/care wasn't nice to them). The front has been on for over 7100 miles, the back I removed at around 4500 I think and can't free the cog off (my own fault for crap/stupid installation.)

    I doubt it, unless the pista comes in 26" rims.

    Right now I'm running a set of Alex R500s to formula hubs. Pretty sure it's one of the cheapest setups available but it was handbuilt so it's remained true so far after a year of abuse.

    Eventually I'm looking at a set of Alex DA28 to formulas. Right now my wheelset does what I need it to.

    the rims are 700c, eighteen paired spoke rolf vector comps. the hubs are high flange, 36 hole formulas spaces 100mm front and 120mm rear double fixed. the spokes are bladed sapim cx rays. the nipples are all brass sapim polyaxs. the lacing pattern is two cross crows foot using every other hub hole.

    the whole plan was more than a little unconventional and possibly a bit ambitious for my first wheel build, but i just wanted to give something interesting a whirl. im no tri, track, or weight fiend. i had been using this very model of eighteen hole rim radially laced to an aluminum eighteen hole front hub, and it proved to be very durable and a great performer. my rear wheel was stolen and i got a great deal on the rims and hubs so it must have been meant to be. i wasnt worried about the rim or the spoke count as rolf/trek designed and drilled these rims to be used with 18, 16 and even 14 spokes (albiet at high tension), but the right hub was a concern before i made my decision. fixed hubs with 18 holes are impossible to find so 36 it was. i prefer low flange, but with 36 holes, there would be little metal around each hole. for this reason, i went with a high flange hubset. now i was still on the fence about it, but i saw this wheelset, which, though having a higher flange and non paired spokes, uses about the same depth of rim and even a hub brake, which involves tremendous force. i used spocalc linked at sheldons to figure the spoke lengths. the rims and hubs were in the database, but i think i had to plug in 36 hole hole four cross into the table to figure the lengths of the cross spokes. these will be used on the street without tricks or crub and fents jackassery. since the hubs and spokes are 797g and all together possibly under 2000g if i can find the rim weights, they could be a decent competition wheelset if i do say so myself. i mean, theyre so damn aero right? i understand that the forces are distributed over a fewer number of spokes leading to potentially easier untruing slash catastrophic failure, god forbid, and i will proceed initially with caution.
