If you want a no frills wheelset for gears or in this case a fixed wheel machine, Harry Rowland's the man. While he prefers to build with Mavic rims and charges the same price for a wheel built with their CXP22, we plumped for DRC rims.
Ambrosio are one of the older more traditional manufacturers of rims in Italy and have been making them for decades. Paul Hewitt has used the very slender Sapim Lazer butted spokes that can be specified with brass or weight-saving aluminium nipples.
The RD88s are far from the lightest wheels but they do have a desirable list of features.
These wheels are a good choice if you haven't got much to spend. They're heavy but still a decent way to make your bike disc compatible. The Rigida Zac rims have been keeping budget and mid-price bikes rolling for years.
