Just recently I learned of the beginner track nights, and classes at the local velodrome Marymoor park and am looking forward to starting up and learning this following season.
My question is: I Just had my rear hub strip and so am in the process of building a new wheel. I do intend to ride in urban, as well as velodrome and all weather. My interest initially in track has so far been sprints and miss and out races, though I'm sure that may shift.
Can anyone offer some advice as to a build for a rear wheel? My last wheel from a friends suggestion was a deep v laced to a dimension, which I've found seems to be common in the street fixed gear circle. I was looking at the Miche hub, but it seems people find it so-so. Also for rims, and spoke count/patterns?
I understand the principle behind buying the best quality for cost in the long run, but I am a college student, who also invest in other forms of racing that I am already more deeply involved in and is as of now my main thing. Are Dimension and Miche then going to be my best options for this type of riding and price range for now until I can commit a bike to track and not be thrashing it in the rain/snow/sand before taking it to the track?
