Recommendation for Rear Tubular Rim(1 post)

Recommendation for Rear Tubular Rimridewt
Jun 17, 2003 12:32 PM
I want to build some race tubular wheels. I have a NOS Mavic GEL 280 for the front, 36 holes. I'll probably build a 36 hole for the rear too. I'm 6'3" and about 183. I'd like recommendations for a rim that will be strong enough to get me to the finish line but light for racing. Maybe Mavic Reflex? One local told me that some old school rims that I might find tend to be weaker/less stiff than newer rims. Any comments/recommendations appreciated. Thanks.
