several weeks ago I ordered a set of rims..
When I got them, I was surprised that these rims didn't have eyelets.. It was supposed to be the lightest one in its class.. I really expected it would at least have eyelets..
At that time, Rigida's site was undergoing upgrades, so I wasn't able to do research..
BTW, I got the Rigida Sphinx 622(700C)..
Just recently rigida site was back, I checked.. there are two sphinx models (w/c I really didn't know 'til now).. The Sphinx(mine) and the Sphinx-R. the latter had eyelets and the sphinx none..
So my question is.. would it matter? durability wise? this is the first set of rims that I had that didn't have eyelets..
BTW, specs on both rims are identical, except for the eyelets..
what should i expect?
