I want to build (in fact I want to let my dealer do this) a pretty light pair of wheels.
I was thinking of using Dt Swiss 240s hubs and Dt Swiss RR1.1 Rims, combined with Sapim CX Ray spokes. I want it to be light and stiff, is this a good option or would you guys recommend another pair of rims?

My dealer doesn't know these brands, but I can order them online so I want to know if it is really a good choise.

Tnx for any info..

(please forgive me if there is some "incorrect use of the English language", I'm Dutch and do not speak/type English so very well).

A european "wheel builder" that does not know about Sapim and DT swiss?????
sounds fishy to me but if you know he is good then I guess its fine.
fine hubs fine rims and fine spokes.

Carbonsports uses DT swiss for their lightweight wheels....albeit with carbon shells but if it is good enough for them it must be good eh? ;)

It's an old man, (ex professional from before the war: Jaap Huissoon). He's great at building wheels, but only sells the "usual stuff": Mavic :D.

There's lots of cheap internetshops based in Germany, If you know what you want and can do most of the work on your bike yourself they are great.

In Holland there's http://www.salden.nl/

And http://www.hopmansfietsgigant.nl/ although they don't sell through the net, so you'll have to go to Bergen op Zoom. :cool:

Edit: I forgot http://www.bikexperto.com/ for wheels. Zoran builds excellent wheels at good value.
