Yeah I agree with you there in terms of road only rims. @ILb mentioned gravel though and having an alloy set with more robust tyres would be more preferable off-road and allow faster tyres and carbon rims to be saved for the road stuff.
Got the sigma sports Vel 50mm RL’s out today. Loud hub! Fine in wind. Most importantly they look cool.
Parcours Paniagua would be my shout if you want prebuilt, wider than Hunt, Prime and better spokes (Sapim CX), similar level hubs.
As others have said Just riding along also Lark Light look good as well.
Custom / handbuilt at a noticeably 'better' spec (HED) than the above will be serious £££
Fulcrum racing 7 LG has been discontinued, what's the current equivalent?
Anybody used Ritchey Zeta Classic wheels, and can comment on their quality/value?
I'm in the contemplation phase of upgrades for my bike, with current exchange rates they work out at about £370, then I'd have to figure out how to get them from Europe to UK.
