    Building up some old Mavic GP4s for my track bike! Should be a fun little weekend project.

    Reflex to White Industry
    Dura-Ace tubular (scandium) to White Industry
    Carbon tubeless 60mm to White Industry

    No, I don't have "a problem", I "have preferences" :)

    Spinning a new set of basic, simple Campy Zonda wheels on a Serotta ti/carbon this spring. Bought them over the winter so am just getting them on the road now. Jeez, those are nice wheels. Really snappy (maybe because they're pretty stiff?), roll fast and true, look OK, not too noisy freehub, great price. No need for rim tape is nice, too.

    Bang for buck? Don't think there's anything close to these. May get a second set they're so good.

    I have the shimano freehub setup. Thinks it's steel rather than alum. Fine by me.

    The other new wheelset in the lineup is a pair of handbuilt Ambrosio Excellight rims (28/32) laced to WI T11 hubs with Sapim CX spokes. Whoa. Those are also winners. Like silk with a pair of Pave 24's mounted right now. But more than twice the price of the Zondas...

    What are you using them for? If you weigh less than a million pounds and these are for road, 24/28 may be a better option.

    I'll second the 24/28 ... that's what I'm on.

    Can't remember if I've responded in this thread already! fwiw, I've got 28-hole DT Swiss RR465 on both my "good" (sic) road bikes, and 36-hole Mavic Open Pros on my foul weather/commuter bike.

    Handbuilts all around -
    various rims on WI hubs,
    20/24h tubeless w/ IRC rubber on A23s - likely getting a rim swap for carbon tubeless clincher soon,
    20/20h DA Scandium tubular rims, Schwalbe 22mm rubber
    28/32 tubular on Reflexes - getting cx tubular tyres glued up some time soon, but Challenge skin wall 24s for now.

    There's a set of Ultegra 6800s tubeless and a set of Mavic Ksyrium SSC something-mumbo-jumbo sitting around too, but they mostly just sit.

    I've been running a pair of White Industries T11 hubs on H Plus Son Archetypes for the past 5,000 miles. DT Comp 3x/Radial rear 24h, front uses DT Rev radial 20h. I've been running a single layer of Stan's 22mm tape for extra lightness and ease of mounting tires.
    They've been nothing short of amazing.
    The only word I can give is to not run alloy nipples with Archetypes. Water collects and doesn't drain inside the rim and corrodes the nipples. I've rebuilt my rear twice (until finally switching to brass) and the only silver lining is that both times I felt I was doing something wrong because the build and tension went so easily.
    I put my Fulcrum 7's that came with my bike ont he other day and literally had to turn around a few miles from home and put on my "race" wheels.

    Since this thread has been revived, I'd love to hear reports of the V2 of the Pacenti SL23 rims. I'm close to going with those with the T11 WI hubs for a set of wheels for my Look project. It would seem that the rims alone are a couple generations ahead of my last handmade wheels which were built of either Velocity rims or Ambrosio Nemesis, neither of which excited me.

    My V1 Pacenti SL23s laced to WI ENO hubs (at least the rear...) are very nice and I would imagine the 2nd version might be even nicer and a bit stiffer, being wider and possibly a tad deeper. I really wish there were an offset version of this rim, but that's my own little fantasy.

    They seem to be a step above many other rims in terms of quality.

    My latest set, skinny tire wheels for the Zukas. Nox A36D rims, White Industries CLD hubs, 24/24 Sapim CX-Rays all around. 1520g. Polished hubs, silver spokes, black nipples. Laced them up last night, mounting them tonight, and riding tomorrow!

    Those are sweet, Dustin.

    What's the recommended rider-weight for that set-up? :)

    I must be missing something here, but those seem to be disc-use rims, but those hubs don't look like they're disc-compatible. Are you using those rims with caliper brakes or disc?
