I'm getting ready to have a nice hand-built set of wheels built up and am looking for a little spoke wisdom.
Here's what I know:
Rims: Velocity Fusion (between the aerohead and the Deep V)
Hubs: King 32H
I'm trying to decide between DT Aero Speed spokes and DT 14/15 DB spokes. I would prefer to go with the aero spokes, but have been told that they may yield a much weaker wheel. Given that the rims are pretty beefy should I be concerned that the Aero spokes will significantly weaken the wheel?
For reference I'm at about 230 and dropping. I spin much more than I mash and I'm very careful about avoiding obstacles. I would like something that spins up relatively fast.
Also, I have a pair of open pros laced to 32H Record hubs with 14/15 DB spokes. I've got over 5000 miles on them and they have never needed truing. I finally took them in to be looked at over a month ago and they came out needing very little adjustment. They needed a slight tension adjustment and that was all.
