somewhat new to cyclocross, I'm just trying to see what kind of rims are good. I just bought Chris King hubs now I need good rims to lace them to. Thanks

How many spokes? Clincher or tubular? How do you intend to use them?

If they would do a asymmetric A23 it would be my "do it all" wheel. Are you listening Velocity?

If I'd known about them at the time, I would have chosen them over Aeroheads for my road set. I'm building up a pair for a friend right now, they look good. AFAIK they are same as Kinlin XR-200, except those don't come OC.

Wow, they are only $50 a piece! That brings my road wheelset plan down to $260 and under 1361 grams. Thanks Flargle.

Wow, they are only $50 a piece!Ah, the other nice thing about them I forgot to mention. That's why I chose them over the new Stan's road rims. (Plus the fact that I don't trust Stan's stuff that has been out for less than a year.)

Those rims laced to novatec hubs. Depending on your spoke count you can get down to 1321 grams.

I recently built up a set of A23s for road and cross. 20/24 count and sapim lasers all around is strong enough for my 130 pounds. The set came out to 1392g. They feel great with road tires and the cornering is amazing. I should also be able to run pretty low pressure with cyclocross tires come cross season.
