    The wheelset of your dream ( post your combo ) good looking & unlimited money

    My dream set in a kinda realistic price range for road would be something like this, ( I took esthetics taste in consideration, just not the most expensive part I could find on the web )

    Back wheel

    Chubhub with notorious 90mm

    Front wheel

    Mavic R-Sys SLR C

    Dream wheels? I'd most likely go with something along the lines of NOS 1984 Campy C-Record low flange hubs laced to NOS Mavic MA40 rims from the same year and finish them off with an EAI Gold Medal cog just for ****s & giggles.

    Oh wait...I already did that!

    Dream wheels? I dunno. I'd certainly like a pair of these laced up to whatever is appropriate. (Polished TB14s or Archetypes perhaps?)

    I would not mind some low flanged Mack hubs laced to Campy Shamals. Or something high flanged, like a Campy C-Record or Suzue Pro Max, laced to a box sectioned rim from someone like Araya or Mavic in either a black or hard ano finish.

    High-flange Suntour Superbe hubs laced to Araya RED rims. I settled for Sprint hubs here, almost as good:

    Silver Phil high flange hubs laced to black Archetypes or maybe Suzue Pro Maxes. Looking to build a new wheelset now and trying to split the difference between dream and affordable.

    Wow that's pretty divine IMO... now to hunt down a track version of the rearhub since I already have the road version of that wheelset.

    track: DA laced to zipp 404 firecrest

    fixed/road: Suntour Suberbe to TB14's, or MA40s like Scrod, or better yet, some old hard ano Arayas

    road: Chris King hubs laced to Enve's latest and greatest wide-rim (23mm) offering in the 400-600mm depth range, don't care to look up model names.

    Mavic CXP 30 laced to Zipp hubs.

    I'm not sure if that combo would work in terms of drilling combinations. But, I love both of them.

    Zipp Track Hubs are the best ever.

    My dream race set is Zipp 808 Track front and rear. Scrod, you got a Zipp account?

    I regret selling mine:

    you know, i threw out a set of those hubs back in the early eighties when i moved out of the Denver area. they were laced to a set of Fiamme Red Label tubular rims. i'm still kicking myself thirty years later...

    Campy Shamals are also on my favorite list.

    Word is that these old wheels have tested to be as fast as modern Zipp 404 wheels.

    From the internet:

    Dreamy wheels

    I'm building up some CXP 30's to some hubs I have yet to choose. Maybe White's or Zipp's?

    These are pretty dreamy!

    DA/Zipp 404's aren't all that exotic in reality. Some locals here ride them at SDVA, and a co-worker and friend owns a pair.

    I think I have bigger ***** for that track SRM.

    These ridiculous things:
    How much? Lew Racing's US$15,000 wheels - BikeRadar
    Though I am unsure if the company is even still around but if I am going to be allowed "balla" money then I will buy "balla" wheels.


    On the real I would probably go with H+ Archetypes, DT Swiss Competition spokes, and Phil Hubs. Though those Campy Shamals are purdy nice!

    I just started building mine (finally!), although the parts have been sitting in my garage for a month or so:

    Paul Components 32h high flange track hubs
    Sapim black spokes
    Velocity A23 rims

    Shamals on the fixie (I have 3 of 'em now ) & firecrest 404's on the roadie.

    What?!!! You chucked a pair of C-Record track hubs?!! Haven't forumites been banned for such offenses??

    FWIW, I still have several pairs of Campy Record HF hubs that I bought in the early 70's, and they still spin as perfectly as only Campy hubs can. Bastids last forever.

    I've always had a thing for Japanese parts so Dura Ace 7600s or Suntour Superbes laced to Araya 16B Gold or old Araya Super Aeros with Hoshi double butted spokes and a DA cog to top it off, the Campy Shamals are a bucket lister too I've got to own a set of those someday, some of the old Campy Ghilbis would be great too.
