    WTB: 700c Touring Wheelset (Mavic, Velocity, VO)

    Looking for a touring wheelset of pretty high quality, hopefully Mavic A719, Velocity Dyad, Velo Orange Diagonale, etc. No preference on 126mm or 130mm spacing. Strongly prefer all silver/gray.

    What ya' got?

    May look at something slightly lighter duty, suited for bike camping, commuting, gravel grinding, and randonneuring. At least 32h (36h preferred) with a rim wide enough to run a at least a 700x35c tire. 130 - 140lb rider with a loaded bike at 50lbs or so.

    Did you ever find your wheels? I have some Velocity Deep V's on Shimano LX hubs 135 in the back though...run 23's to 38's on them. I'm a larger rider, so they should hold extremely well for your needs.

    Hi Jaxgtr,

    Saw your posting in the wanted section about some rims you may have for sale. I was wondering what you are looking to get for them. I have a Concorde Colombo with Shimano 600 components. The rear hub is a seven speed cassette. Its an older bike but I too am a heavier rider and it seems after 20km rides my spokes really loosen off. I believe it may be bent thus causing spokes to lose tension. I ride about 100-150 km a week do you think the wheels you have available will suffice? Thanks for your time, I am new to this whole community and sport so please excuse my ignorance towards proper terminology.

    Regards,

    Coach

    PS. sorry for creeping on this wanted page

    Hi Brian,


    Yes I believe my wheels are 130mm so your wheels may not be compatible with my old clunker. Thanks a lot for the reply and I am hoping my wheel can be straightened, if not, I guess I will be spending some money on wheels.


    Cheers,


    Coach
