Front Wheel - Track or 'normal'
Both braking surfaces on my 'as spec' Fillmore Wheels are shot and need replacing (eventually...)
As seems to be the way with cheap wheels, it seems to be only marginally more expensive to replace the whole shebang rather than going for two wheel builds on the existing hubs
I understand that loosely speaking, a 'track' front wheel = 'deeper dish' and more spokes - so a stronger wheel?
This Fillmore has never seen a track, never will do, and is used for commuting and 50 mile adventures around the South Downs.
What with it being the South Downs and all - any boost to hill climbing is a bonus, by using a 'normal' front wheel instead of a 'track' I'd save a couple of hundred grams (smaller hubs, less spokes)
Whilst that'll obviously mean a less-strong front wheel, are there any other problems / reasons I should replace the current front wheel with a second 'track' front wheel.
