Velocity Aerohead Rims

I apologize if this is inappropriate for this forum, if so pleased delete. I'm located in the states and am looking to obtain a pair of Velocity Aerohead bmx rim. I'm building a set of wheels for my son's bmx race bike out of a pair of cane creek track hubs. I love tinkering and believe Cane Creek made some of the best wheel on the market. Cane Creek hubs locate the nipples at the hub so I need a pair of Velocity Aerohead rims without drillings, i.e. blanks. Velocity was the OEM supplier to Cane Creek before Cane Creek got out of the wheel business. A locale shop here contacted Velocity USA to inquire about a pair of blanks. Velocity USA said they currently didn't have any blanks in stock and it might be months before they get them from Velocity Australia. I write you hoping I could make contact with a shop in Austria that could obtain them and ship them to the states. I understand the extra burden but I have few options.

Below are the details:

Velocity Areohead
Size: 20 x 1 1/8
BSD: 451

Link to the velocity page: http://www.velocitywheels.com/store/...?pID=73&cID=26


If anyone is willing to help I would greatly appreciated it. I can pay by credit card over the phone or any other method you prefer.

Again sorry is this is inappropriate for this forum.

Thanks
John

Talked to a shop in Melbrone who was able to inquire with velocity. Looks like Velocity doesn't have any.

That's a shame. I've seen a penny-farthing rocking a pair of AeroHeads!

I had my Moultons wheels custom built and supplied by a firm in the states as they could create them for a better price than here in Australia. They were Sapim CX-Rays and Velocity Aeroheats in 406.
I suggest you contact wheelbuilder.com in California and see if they have any in stock or are able to source any for you. I did have a contact name.... Here it is. Richard Sawiris.
Good luck!
