    new wheelset for xmas maybe

    i have weinman dp18's in white and I'm wanting a more box section, classic looking rim. Should I go with velomine's mavic or sun wheels? Is there a reason to get open pro's over cxp rims? Or should I stray away from shallower rims for strength reasons, because I'll admit I'm not easy on my wheels.

    Don't fear the box-section. My Sun M13s have been nothing but good to me and I'm a heavy hitter.



    Unless you're a 350 lb gorilla busting mad trikzzz, a properly-built 36h M13 laced 3x will most likely be stronger than any rim you'd ever need.

    Definitely vote on getting some M13's like ^. They look awesome and are said to be good quality if built right.

    Also, scrod what's your inseam? lol

    Iv been running a set of CR18's in 36h 3x for over a year now and have not even had to true them. I am a lighter weight rider but ride like im on a bmx bike.

    If you want wider tires, I highly recommend the CR18's. I say that because the CR18 is a wider rim and doesnt like anything below a 28-30c tire.

    I bought Mavic Open Pro to Dura Ace hubs from Velomine and have been happy with them, but they aren't the strongest wheel ever. They are in need of a truing pretty badly right now. Then again, I'm crazy fast, strong and wreckless.

    if you can afford open pros, by all means do it.
    CXPs are nice too, but not box section.
    you cant argue with mavic's quality.
