Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Help with some Rims

Hello,

I'm looking to build up some new wheels and have been looking for a good rim to do so with. I have looked at the Mavic OP and CXP33 rims as well as the DT swisses, I weigh 155 lbs and and going to pair the setup with some Phil Wood hubs that I have. I'm commuting with them and using them for some training. Any help would be great!

What do you need help with? You are trying to get the internet to help you build wheels? The internet is a place to get information mostly and it can't really do things like help you build wheels. Maybe you are asking for some opinions about what good rims are. Did you try doing search? Most of the rims that you can buy have reviews that are already written. Google would be a more effective tool for this than starting a thread on the forums. I hope I have helped.

I like rims. They keep my tires from flopping around and getting tangled in my spokes.

You should go to a good wheel builder, he can probably fix that.
