Want to build a PT wheel with a light rim. and ideas of a light rim?
St. Elia said:PT = power tap
Carbon is fine I want it for both training and racing as I would want to have the PT for both.
The hub would off set the weight of the rim, and then some. So I want as light a rim as I can get away with.

Edge makes a low-profile carbon tubular rim that weights 200 grams. But they are super expensive at about $750 each. Probably not an idea wheel to use for training...
