Your typical Nishiki conversion can handle some purple deep Vs. Kilo TTs can have a nice black on black DP18 set with formula hubs.
Now if you had a really nice Italian track bike that would once in a while go for a street ride but spend %90 of the time on the track what would you do to find a set that was light and affordable? My bontrager select track wheels are under 2000g and I'd like to keep it that way on the new build.
Under 2100 grams for the pair - no cog/ring.
All black or at least silver hubs. No machining
radial laced front
off the shelf clinchers
Under $400 shipped for both.
The Miche Pistard from PBK is very affordable but only in tubular right now from them.
Ambrosio Pista Track is very appealing
The blasphemy part? I held a set of the VUELTA Pista XRP Track in my hands recently and some weird part of me really liekd the wheels. Vuelta seems to have their act together these days and the wheelset is light, meets all my requirements but just has no cachet I guess. Yes, there is nobody to appease here other than me but I'd like some sage advice as to something I'm potentially missing. There are many on here far wiser than I and I'd like some schooling on wheelsets that might not be mainstream. Also why the mention of PBK? I'm buying a whack of stuff from them and would like it to all come in one box but hey, I gotta be flexible.
thanks to Vixtor for already hearing me whine about this.
