I intend to get a pair of wheels built soon, around some Velocity Deep V rims, for a single speed bike.
I see hubs for sale on here and other forums all the time. My thoughts are to buy the rims new, get some half decent 2nd hand hubs, then get them assembled by an LBS in my hometown (Bristol) If anyone on here knows a good wheel builder in Bristol as well then please let me know. My background is mountain biking and I have *very* little experience with road wheels/hubs...I'd appreciate some advice on what hubs are good/what to look for/roughly how much I should be paying...
Seeing as I'm running only one gear will it matter if the hubs are shimano/campag? Or is this unimportant? Sorry if any of my questions are dumb but as I said this is a whole new area to me.
I don't need anything too amazing but don't want bottom of the range stuff either.
Any and all user suggestions/comments/experiences are very welcome.
Some people love these V-Rims, others have been trying to steer me away from them and towards mavics... again I am open to any suggestions anyone might have.
The V-Rims are 32H, I await your answers gentlemen
