rear wheel choices

I just built a front wheel.
Mavic Open Pro with Hoshi spokes on a Dura-Ace 7600 hub.
I use the bike about 3 times a month on the track for hobby events, and also daily to commute to work. So I wanted a machined wall for the front brake. That's why I decided to get the Open Pro.
No brake on the rear wheel.
What rim would be a good option in the same price range?

I tend to like bikes with matching wheelset, even for track bikes. My opinion would be get another Open Pro.

Or you could get the CD version of Open Pro.

I was thinking of a wheel without machined walls, since I am not running a brake in the rear. But I guess having a machined wall anyways doesn't hurt.

cannot help with your question, but curious to know what track you ride at? Is there actually anything in the vicinity of Shibuya?
