Hi, I'm in the process of building up a track bike. I am planning to use the bike for road ITT and try out track racing next year. I wanted to try track racing this year but it's already too late for that so I'll have to wait. I did two road ITT events this year and just fell in love and I know if I give track racing a try I will love it. I've been researching for the last two weeks on wheelset and can't decide which wheelset to settle on. So far these are what I'm thinking:
Carbonzone(Chinese) 50/88 carbon track wheelset
Velocity Deep V's laced to Formula Hubs
H+Son SL42 24f/24r laced to Formula Hubs
FLO 30(if they offer a track version)
Miche Pistard WR wheelset(not sure if brakes can be use)
Mavic Ellipse(are these compatible with brakes?)
The wheelset has to be compatible with at least a front brake to be legal for the local road ITT events so I'm not sure if either the Miche or Mavic will work. My budget is $500 but if the recommended wheelset is worth going over my limit then I don't mind saving up. I should also add that my current commuter(what I use for the ITT events this year) already have Velocity Deep V's so please excuse my noobness and any help/suggestion would be much appreciated.
