Thinking of a new handbuilt wheelset with a wider rim. Does anyone have any opinions on what are the best options? I want a set for all around training and club rides on road. Hoping for light, stiff and responsive with good ride quality. Thinking a set of shimano or something like white industry hubs. Like to keep costs reasonable but also good quality.
1) Velocity A23s (shallow, decent price, people seem to like them)
2) Hed C2 / Belgiums - look good, 25 depth but a bit pricy ($120 per rim)
3) New Kinlin's - Looks like they have a wide rim now that is similar to the Hed's but a little deeper and heavier
Anything else I should look at? Any preferences formed yet on ride experience and quality?
Seems like some nice options out there....
