I m using 25 mm tires on my road bike and on the look for new wheels (EU based). Found Schmolke and consider a set of 47 mm front and 62 mm rear, DT 180 hubs.
28 mm wide, 21 mm internal.

I searched the forum but could not find any entries relating to these wheels.

Any experience with the wheels?
In particular the rims and build quality.

What is the reason of choosing Schmolke other than just spending a ton of money, as there are reputable Chinese wheel builders with equal or lighter weight rims, but much better rim specs in terms of internal / external widths?

IIRC, there were some troubles with (at least early) Schmolke rims due to the manufacturing process they used, and I think, these were even mentioned around here.
Minimum bike categories required in the stable:
Aero bike | GC bike | GC rim bike | Climbing bike | Climbing rim bike | Classics bike | Gravel bike | TT bike | Indoors bike
