    Default 28-hole Ambrosio Nemesis

    Does such a beast exist? I have two sets of wheels with Record hubs in the 28/32 configuration. Based on what I have seen of my new set of Ambrosios on my VA Beach bike I'd love to build up another set or two with these terrific rims.

    Tom?

    What makes these any better than, say, a Mavic Reflex? Doesn't the reflex have a better/machined brake surface?

    They may not be any better. The Mavics could be better. They have a channel for the rim tape.

    But I have owned Ambrosio tubulars in the past (still own them) and love the ride they give.

    Nothing more than that for me. But they also have a stellar reputation for strength and durability.

    Plus, they're kind of exotic and I'm for sure the only kid on my block with them.

    These are my other ones. I once broke a spoke. Otherwise they have been bombproof for years and I used them heavily in Switzerland when I lived there, up and down mountains and over passes, etc. I even race on 'em in the Sihlsee Rundfahrt once upon a time in Einsiedeln. Admittedly, they have just a 7-speed freewheel and therefore less dish, but they feel like good wheels for some reasons. The rims are clearly a good thing.

    They still get ridden at least 500 miles per year these days on my Grandis, which now resides at my folks' house.




    Anyway, I have reason to like my Ambrosio rims. They have been reliable and strong and comfortable for many, many years. I hope to own more.
