I bent my rear rim this week (and then snapped a spoke in my spare rear wheel). Oh dear. I'm looking to replace the rear rim only, and keep the spokes. The current rim is a 17mm deep Rigida Chrina. Unfortunately, Rigida has no distribution in the USA, so I won't be able to get a direct replacement. Can I replace it with another rim of similar depth? Would a Mavic Open Pro or Velocity Razor work? I'm looking for a simple box section rim. I'd buy another Rigida if I could, because they have been great. I'd prefer to work with my LBS, but are there any other options I should be aware of?
