What rim would you recomend... I'm building up a wheelset and I already have the hubs, 28 hole DA. So, I need a 28 hole, tubular, rim suitable for mass start crits, rr, and the crashes that go along with. I haven't had very good luck with the reflex's.

I ride like a stupid jr. and subsequently crash a lot. I've folded two of them. It's not that I can't handle my bike, I just choose to take a lot of risks. I already have a lightweight pair of AMclassics so now I'm looking for a rim that will suit me better in rough and tumble crits.

I don't get it. you are trying to save weight and yet you want strong. Hmmm

Try velocityusa.com check out their rims. Aero or Fusion clinchers would probably be good, and if you want an even stouter, try Deep V. Never had a direct experience with any of the rims, but judging from what folks say about velocity, they are very nice rims overall.

woof.

Never said I wanted light. Thanks for the recomendation, I'll check them out. I do know a good vet if you want some rabies shots. I hear that distemper sucks too. All the best to our four legged friends....

say that you wanted it to be light. You wanted a tubular, but whats the point? Weight savings are negligible if you want a strong wheel, plus these days clinchers are really nice and light and ride the same as tubies (i know).

woof.
