I'm building up two dynamo wheels this winter.

For one I'm using a Mavic A-119 with 32c compass tires because that's what's on the rear wheel which I'm not replacing. I wanted matching rims so I didn't consider anything else for this wheel.

For the other one, I'm building a set with CR-18's for 38c compass tires. Other rims I considered for the set were H plus son TB14, VO RAID, and Velocity A23. I went with the CR18's because they were ~1/3 the cost and perfectly adequate for how I will use them.

If I were building a wheelset for a soma ES I would want polished silver rims because I like the way they look on a steel frame. I'm probably in the minority there.
