I want some advice on some wheels that I'm trying to build.
Track newbie here. Cat3 crit rider on the road, 145-155 lbs depending on time of year/amount of beer drinking. I'm generally hard on my equipment for a guy my size. I consider myself a decent sprinter on the road and excel in slight inclines/headwinds. Having said that I've learned through recent experience that I am not even close to a real sprinter on the track and get blown out of the water in like a flying 200 by those linebacker lookin' mofos
My intention for this wheelset is to use them as my go-to track wheels. These wheels will be ridden on the track only and will see no street use except possibly from my car to the track on the sidewalk unless I decide thats a bad idea. They will be used primarily for mass-start endurance races like points and scratch.
Idea: Low-profile, tubular, highish spoke count, nice loose ball hubs.
Rims: Velocity Escape 32H
Spokes: Straight gauge stainless spokes
Hubs: Dura Ace high-flange 32H
Please criticize my ideas and offer component suggestions. Additionally I am looking for tire suggestions as well, something that has a nice compromise between durability and speed.
added in edit: the velodrome will mostly be the outdoor concrete san diego velodrome
