+1 That sounds like a great combo. I'm a fan of the Velo Orange touring hub because it's easy to service on the go. For the front hub I'd consider a dynamo hub or something like the Velo Orange high flange if you don't want a dynamo.

Edit: Too late to the party Enjoy your new wheelset.

I have been trying to incorporate more unpaved miles into my tours, and the streets of Philly as really banged up. I am also about 210 lbs. Stout is good.

Looks good. I like the retro non-aero rim profile. I’ve been happy with the rear wheel I just bought, that’s specced pretty close to yours.

I also used Ryno Lite rims on my folding bike. They work quite well for me too. I run 40 mm wide tires on them.
