best place to buy rims?
I posted this over in the road cycling forum, but maybe the mechanics could be of a bit more help. I'm looking to build up a low spoke count wheelset probably 16/20 or 20/24 and i'm having trouble finding rims with the number of spoke holes I need.
Ideally I would like to get some Velocity Deep-V's....anyone know of a good site to get these with the number of holes I need?
You might want to try Yellow Jersey. http://www.yellowjersey.org/velrim.html
They are a very reputable shop and they have a good connection with Velocity. I ordered some Aeroheads from them and they came fairly quickly - drop shipped from Velocity themselves so you shouldn't have a problem getting the spoke pattern you want. BTW, I'd go 20/24 just to be safe.
