    Rim/hub recomendation

    Looking to build a 36 h wheel 120ish mm spacing. For polo and just riding... I just want something tough and will last me awhile.

    Looking at Velocity Chukkers, B43 if I can get them machined.

    These

    And one more I forgot the name though I will post them later


    As for hub something with high flanges doesn't have to be flip flop..

    I sort of want the rim to accept a wider road tire.

    Budget? Will these be your only wheels?

    Those DT Swiss TK 540s look nice. I use Salsa Delgados but VO has a pretty sexy set of RAID rims that look solid.

    Hubs are an easy choice(s):

    this gets asked all the time; like there is some magic combo of rim/hub that makes the perfect wheel.

    much more important than any of the components for a wheel is how they are put together.

    go find someone who builds good wheels, give them your budget, and he/she will help you far more than any numbskulls on the interwebz

    bottom line: awesome components can be built into a really crappy wheel and even crappy components can make nice wheels in the hands of a skilled professional.

    my last bit of advice is stay away from velocity rims because they dent way too easily but i am sure ten or so people will contradict that statement.

    I think i may go with these, I want the eyelets. Velocity looks nice and flashy but sorta trendy to me..

    I want to try my hand at building a wheel, I like working on and building my own stuff.

    Anyways I think I will go with the High flange version of these
