    Wheel profile for a medium clyde

    Play super sleuth and profile me a rim I can use!

    I am 237 with gear on.
    These will go on my Trance 2, cause the mavic's ain't cutting it.
    Rear can include freewheel if necessary
    Can be UST
    I will put nevegals on them if possible
    Weight preferred lowest possible without compromise for strength
    Priced = to or less than $500 for the pair.
    Customs welcome.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    DT Swiss 4.1ds, DT Swiss spokes. (solid rim for your weight)
    Hadley Rear Hub
    Shitmano Front Hub

    should come out close to $500 I would bet.....

    I'm loving my 5.1ds, for $20, it's worth the extra width on the rims.....

    I'd rather over buy than underbuy......

    Velocity VCX rims (36 hole) with Hope XC front and Bulb rear. Call Mike Garcia at Oddsandendos.com. He will take the time to talk to you and discuss your needs and riding style. I just got the set mentioned above and it is well within your price range.

    DT Swiss.

    Hit a search for DT Swiss around here and you'll be convinced.

    I will get mine in the mail today probably.

    - DT Swiss 5.1d
    - Hope Pro II front and rear hubs
    - DT Supercomp spokes; the Supercomps were recommended against the Revolutions - for my wieight and riding style; I'm on the cusp of Clydesdale-ism, at 203.
    - I just got my Kenda Nevegals 2.35 - foldable, Stick-E
    - I will run Contintental Light tubes

    I'm 6'3", 203 and these are gonna go on my custom Reign. So pretty similar with yours.

    Chad, at Redbarnbicycles.com, built them for me. It was just around $500. A bit under.
    Extraordinary customer service and the best prices I've found. And, believe me, I have looked a lot.

    What else would you want - custom wheels, around $500, built on the highest rated components around, outstanding customer service. Can't go wrong...
