Which wheel/rim for SS?(1 post)

Which wheel/rim for SS?mattcrout

I have two wheels that i can use for my SS. they are both 7-speed 105 freehubs, so it's just which one i put the spacers on and make SS, and which one i put the cassette on for my other bike. I forsee doing more SSing then riding the gear bike. so, the two rims are a Velocity Deep V (heavy and strong) or an early 90's campy strada box rim (lighter). both are 32 holes, same hubs on both. does it matter? I was thinking that SS puts a lot more torque on the wheel when starting out, so i figured i'd use the Deep V. What do you think? Thanks!
