I just inherited a pair of 28/32 King hubs...

...what rims do I want to try?

Belgium +?
New OP?
DT Swiss 411?


I've got a pair of TB14s, a pair of Am Classic Hurricanes, a few pair of Open Pro tubulars/Reflex tubulars, and have had many old OPs.

Whatcha like to build with?

I say DT Swiss 411 or Velocity A23 with the rear asymmetrical. Front spokes DT Revolution 2x and rear DT Competition 3x.

I'm liking my 411 rims in 28/28. Didn't realize they made the asymmetrical rim in 32, so I only use these wheels when I'm lighter than usual and want to "feel" a little "faster". The rest of the time I'm on a set of 440s in 32/32.

I'm also on the DT 440s, 32/32 with asymmetric rear rim. Makes for an awesome wheel!

DT411 really nice and OC rear..time to get tubulars? 28/32 Ambrosio are hard to find but..
I'll bet I can find a DT440 front in 28h..I have 32h DT440 rears(OC also)..

assuming these are R45's and it'll be a road or cross build, I'd go belgiums. or plus model if you ever see yourself wanting to go tubeless.

I've had a pair of Nemesis wheels before. Have 2 pr of OP tubulars (1 pair that I haven't ridden!), and a pair of Mach2 Ceramics now.

I don't think I've had DT Swiss rims as a separate thing from a wheelset before, so I'm leaning that way

Really happy with my Kinlin XR31T rims- 32h front and OC rear. If I where building another set of wheels, no doubt I'd use them again.

I'm planning on re-rimming some 24/28 240S hubs on those Belgium + rims.

I'm maybe 170# at my heaviest. I'm thinking that if I can run those Belgium + rims 20/24 or 24/28, they're WAY overkill for a 28/32 hubset.

Haven't built with em yet tho

Why hard anodizing? Thick anodizing layers decrease the fatigue strength of aluminum, and it has bee shown that hard anodized rims are more prone to cracking.

That, plus hard anodized surfaces often have worse braking - at least until the anodize layer has been worn through, after which the rim often looks awful.

archetypes are quite stout, durable rims. i havent heard of any issues with the hard ano versions cracking. the ano versions look very nice and are a good alternative if you dont want a silver or black rim. the brake tracks hold up pretty well in my experience, and when worn, they look no worse than any other painted rim with a silver brake track. i have a set on a gravel bike (my geekhouse) and they have held up remarkably well, brake fantastically, and still look good.
