    light wheels for street use - deep v profile

    EDIT: im looking for other companies besides velocity that makes deep v and can withstand street riding. i have nothing against velocity, i just want to see what my other options are.

    im looking for some wheels with side walls like a deep v but light and good for street use.

    are the velocity fusions better than the velocity deep v?

    I would also like a super light, aero profile rim which is bombproof and will stay true in NYC potholed streets, preferably for under $150 /wheelset.

    I know they're not as deep as cheap-v's, but sun ryno lites are really strong rims. Lace that to a Paul hub with some double butted spokes and you got one hell of a wheel. I skid, hop curbs, and STL has some nasty pot holes, and my 230lb ass hasn't manage to get it to come out of true yet...

    i thought american classic hubs have pretty bad reviews. Correct me if i'm wrong, i never rode one. Just rumors on teh internez

    anyway. Light, deep, and budget friendly is to build ur own Using Kinlin rims and White Industry hubs laced with sapim cx-rays, you can build a wheelset about 1500g under $500.

    i thought there were other ones but i can't find it right now. I'm interested to know what others have to say since I was originally considering them for a wheel build.

    the hardware is not top quality but, the hubs themselves are good.

    My wheelset from ebay takes quite a beating and I have no problems with them. They are Yeah Wheels. They came with tires tubes and a cog for like $170 and they are 43mm like an H+son or B-43. they have cheap hubs but the bearings are pretty smooth. They are pretty light too for a deep profile wheel. Here is a link for them
    http://cgi.ebay.com/2011-TOMCAT-43mm...item3f034db18f
    He also has 50mm wheelset too

    Ive seen those "yeah" wheels on ebay before too, but couldn't find a single review or comment on them. But that price w/ cogs, tires, and tubes just sounded way too fishy to me.

    They are actually not too bad for the price. Like I said mine have a lot of hard miles on them and I have had no problems.

    kinlin / ird, period. deepest ones are 30mm.

    i have nearly 10k on a set and they look like the day i got them. mine are basic black, but they can be had in all kinds of hipster/fixie colors these days.

    bomber strong, and light enough given the depth...30mm are about 490g.
