What do with 36h hubs?

So I am building new wheels starting with 36h campy records hubs (sheriff stars). What are my options in terms of rims? Do I have to go with 36 h rims? And if so what would y'all recommend? Thanks, I appreciate the help with prob really basic question.

yes, 36 hole rims. 36 is a good number for tandems and fat people.

oh 165, they're fine on the street. my brother did years on a set and easily put more than 2000 miles on them at 260+ lbs. I got them from him and have done another 500 in a few months, all on the streets of Chicago and NY.

get a 36h rim. I have deep V's and can tell you, if done right, you will never have a problem. if I did it over again I might use different rims but these rims are years old, tied and soldered, and still true taking them apart to redo would be a step in the wrong direction.

I built up these wheels with Campy Nuovo Record high flange 36h hubs and Mavic Open Pro rims. DT Swiss double-butted stainless Competition spokes. They're solid.

Don't forget that the spokes are just as important as the rims.....I don't know about you, but I've broken a lot more spokes than rims.....

Often wonder about lacing vintage hubs with new rims. looks great, but is it blasphamy? (p.s. guilty)

btw: why don't they make shiney alloy rims like the MA2's anymore?

Since when are bar-cons such a rarity? Pretty much every production touring bike comes with them...

Also, OP--What kind of person drops coin on a hubset, intends to build the wheels his/her self and doesn't bother to even think that he/she might have to match the rim and hub drilling spoke hole counts? Jesus. "So I got this 6-speed manual transmission for my car; does that mean I need a clutch too?"

yeah spokes and spoke tension is very important I personally like dt or wheelsmith spokes brass nipples and nothing skinnier than 14g and if you ask for it you can get butted 12 and 10 gauge spokes but those are insane

I am 6'4" i ride 36h 3x or 4x I ride them on the street and hard oh and I weigh about 230#

sure, 32 is fine. One of my nicer wheel builds (phills to white deepVs) is only a 32 spoke. That said, at 6'2" when I'm sprinting I can flex those wheels something fierce.

Really? I roll on 28h phils to deep V's laced up with straight gauge spokes, and those buggers are stiff! I'm no midget, either at 6'2", 190#.
