I have a 36 hole rear hub that I would like to build up at some point. I don't need a super burly rim (despite the 36 hole hub implying something stout :)), so I am looking for something under 500g. Any thoughts? 36 hole rims seem a bit scarce these days. It looks like the DT 5.1 would go, but not the 4.2. No Stans rims, no lighter Mavics like the 717. What's a boy to do? :confused:

TIA

Salsa Delgado Disc Race. 25mm wide, 400g, and QBP has the 36 hole version on sale at a deep discount.

DT 5.1d is a good rim, too. I build quite a few of them. It'd be a good rim for your riding style. It's about 500g, though, so on the heavier side of your spectrum.
