new wheelset

why are track wheelsets so dam heavy?
looking to buy new set have pure fixed that roll well but heavy with deep rims. I want shallow rims but costs go from $150 to like $400

I ride Gipiemme Pista Street's on my fixed and find them light and bombproof. Also have Araya Abyss rims on tensile hubs which aren't too bad. If you want lightweight and strong it'll cost just like it does on any other bike fixed or geared. Ebay for good hubs and rims and have a pair built is good if you get lucky. Also check out H PLus Son rims they are strong and massively popular over here in the UK
