Lockdown has curtailed my spending a bunch (not put fuel in the van for months) so looking on the tempting eBay. Where I live rain comes in pretty much any time of the year and I’m a bit of a nervous descender so looking at alloy/carbon wheels.
I keep seeing Mavic Cosmic going for a price that’s palatable. They do have a more V-shaped profile which as I understand is more prone to getting grabbed by the wind. Ebay seller Superteam have what looks to be perfect rim shape (albeit with cheaper hubs).
So my question from people with experience of deeper wheels (of which I have none), would you be looking for the more rounded modern eBay rims or something older like Mavics or Campag Bullets (which a narrower and older still but Campag).
