Yet another new wheel thread - but I'm interested to hear more about rim widths
After my latest episode with my Rolfs I'm going to build a new set of wheels. Right now the two rims under consideration are the HED Belgium C2's Disc and Pacenti SL23. I run dual discs and will be using White Industries MI6 hubs with the Ti Campy freehub as I run full Campy 10 on the bike. Going to do 32h front and rear as the weight savings for 28 spokes in the front is negligible. Most likely going with Sapin CX-ray spokes with alloy nipples. These will go on our CoMo Speedster.
My biggest question is the new wider rim widths. We run GP4000 28's on the bike and even if we consider changing to a different tire - I see us sticking with a 28 width. HED offers the C2 disc in a new + 25mm with.
I've noticed several teams are moving to the 23mm width and running a 25mm tire and liking that combo. Which leads me to think that I might be better of going with the 25mm wide C2 plus rims. So before I pull the trigger on a 23mm wide rim - I'm looking for feedback on 28mm tires on 25mm rims.
