    My Litespeed Tuscany has a Sun Assault SLT 32 spoke rear rim and a Mavic Open Pro 32 spoke front rim. Rims are covered with reflective tape between the spokes. Hubs are Record in rear and Shimano generator in front. My brevet bike. Originally I had Open Pro rear rim too. But it cracked at the eyelets on the non drive side as all Open Pro rims do. Garbage rims. Had to replace it with the Sun rim because it uses the same length spokes. Done that with two rear wheels now. I've foolishly bought Record-Open Pro wheel sets from Performance over the years at a great price. Wheels needed truing to begin and the rear rim replaced after awhile. But at least the parts were very cheap to begin with.

    Litespeed Vortex with 32 spoke 3X Velocity Aerohead/Aerohead OC on Campy Record hubs. What I like is that they are extremely durable, are laterally stiff, can be repaired in 5 minutes (spoke replacement), and cost WAY less than the boutique wheels that are no lighter, no more durable, don't roll better, and are not more aero.

    I'm too lazy to take and post a picture.

    OK I'll play. I like to show off my Eddy.

    Grey Open Pro's with Circus Monkey hubs. Why do I like? They ride well and look cool.

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    It's ti-ish.

    The ti seatpost makes up for some of the carbon tubes;-)

    That's an antique set of Neuvations, borrowed from a bike I bought second-hand. I don't know how old they are. I didn't mind the decals on the other bike, but they look garish on the Litespeed, so I removed them. Turn out, theyr'e a really nice wheel. Changed my opinion of the brand.

    But...

    Last year I had a set of handbuilts made with wider rims for my commuter. I really, really like the ride and handling. Apparently, what they're saying about wider rims is no hype. So I'll be ordering a set of Velocity A23 Pro Build for the Litespeed with next week's paycheck.

    Heavy ones's

    Campag Record 2003 hubs
    36 3x DT db spokes with steel nipples
    Ambrosio Excellence rims, rebadged by Colnago
    Currently shod with Conti GP4 25c tires

    This was taken in Shanghai. On my daily rider, I like bomb proof, no maintenance wheels. I ride a fair amount in the rain and for four years in China, the daily ride was like x-country through a construction site. A lot of bunny hopping when I was there.

    These have never been touched by a spoke wrench and remain true. I've had them now for eight seasons and about 25k miles. Front had been repacked once about 4 years ago and the rear, once. Yeah, I just did the rear and I had to replace the DS hub race and the outer freehub bearing (sealed).

    2003 Campagnolo Eurus

    I had a Ti bike. Now it's just a frame.



    I love the Eurus. Stiff and sturdy (I still haven't had to true them), resonably light, and possibly more Aero than the current Eurus due to the deeper section up front and steel spokes.

    Quick question

    You running 9spd with Chorus shifters and DA derailleurs or 10spd with shiftmate on the back? Nice setup regardless and you're one tall bloke!

    2004 Silver Ksyrium SLs on a 2002 Lemond Tete de Course, soon to be retired for what, I don't know... was thinking about Shimano RS80s or Hed Bastognes, but the whole wider rim seems to be a bunch of marketing BS.

    Maybe some old Industry Nine Egos?

    No, with this:
    http://www.hubbubcustom.com/articles_ergopower.html

    Back in the day I found that Ergopower are more comfortable than 9speed STIs, they were also lighter and cheaper, so I was happy to hear about this possibility to merge 10speed Ergos with 9speed Shimano.

    I like that I have lifetime wheels to go with a lifetime bike. Interesing many of the other replies have handbuilt wheels. Even if I was riding a disposable bike I would still want a pair of good wheels underneath me. These both have enough spokes to allow me to finish a ride if one breaks.

    Daily ride:
    DT RR1.1/DT 240S/Revo 32s 1,583g = F 717g R 866g
    Great all around wheels that can go from touring to fast training.

    Race wheels:
    Reflex/Chorus/DT 32s 1,656g = F 755g R 901g
    On the heavy side but indestrible crit wheels that even my son has not been able to destroy in racing. I prefer to race on tubulars.
    Luck is the intersection of preparation and opportunity.

    He's embarrased to let you see that 52t cog pie plate he has on the rear end.
