I am building up my first track bike, a Bianchi Pista Concept. My LBS will sell me a set of Velocity track wheels with Dura-Ace hubs for about $400 that they'd like to get rid of. Or, they can build me a set of Velocity Fusions for approx. the same price with, say, Surly hubs. I hear the Deep-Vs are noticeably heavier, but don't know how much of a difference the DA hubs make. I intend to compete, hopefully keep these wheels for a long time, and I don't want to spend more than $400. Any input on the Deep-Vs, Fusions, or any comparable wheelsets? Thanks.
If this is for racing, you should probably consider the Velocity Pro Elite, which is the tubular version of the Deep V. I use the Pro Elite for training and some racing, and I like them a lot. They're plenty stiff (far stiffer than my Hed disc) and provide a moderate aerodynamic advantage.
Fusions are a good rim, too, but Deep V's are pretty popular as track wheels for a reason (not because they come in bright colors).
