I heard that the Behrs are stronger but also a little heavier.
To me they seem like a beefy construction more durable and not prone to
bend as easy as others.
The excels are a very good choice also though.

Excel found it used in really good straight top condition and cheap price.
These wheels go for top money

Good find, Petros! Pollo PM'd me about a similar wheel that's on eBay right now, but it's in Israel, and my desire to import a wheel is fairly low.

There's a really killer shop that does custom spokes for whatever application you have, based here in Southern California. They're called Buchanan Spokes, and they're one of the first hits on a Google search.

Their prices seem reasonable, so I may do a bit more legwork and make my next wheel a selected coupling of a cush hub and a nice solid rim. Maybe Excel, maybe other. I'm not going for the Alpina because I didn't wake up this morning and piss money. I just took a piss. Like everyone else.

After all that work, I was able to get the rear rim assembled back the way I purchased it, and adjusted the offset to where I needed it to clear the chain.

Getting the tire warmers on is a bit of a chore because of how little clearance there is. Kinda wish I'd thought that through a little better....

Overall, I really like the results! The white rims are EXACTLY what this bike needed, IMHO.

The downside is that the rear tire loses air because the bead isn't seated properly, and I think I stripped out both of the aluminum valve stems I put in place. I was dorking with tire pressure all day. I'd come back to the bike after sitting for an hour, and the rear was dead flat. Ah well, the project continues.
Thanks from pollo and Petros67
