    find a good wheel builder.
    the strength comes mainly from the build.

  • totally agree, a wheel built to 'that'll do' standards will fail whatever the components.
    I build wheels, and have never had one of my own fail on me, even when I've trashed a frame. Not trying to sound good, just that when you build your own you can get everything right. Get some recommendations from friends who've had good experiences of a shop, preferably a local one.
