    Buying advice needed - Which rim for 700x45c, 60TPI, wire bead tire?

    Hi
    Since my spokes/wheel can't take my "abuse" , I decided to build my rear wheel by myself...
    I want to use my original tire, tube and cassette.
    I already bought new shimano hub and I'm stuck choosing right rim...

    I'm looking for 700c, 36 holes, double-walled and rim brake type. It needs to be black with silver side / braking surface...
    Needs to take 700x45c, 60TPI, wire bead tire ( Specialized Borough XC Sport )

    I'm looking for something really cheap, what can work for me and my 270 lbs weight (at least for few more months, until I loose more weight )

    I couldn't find anything online about sizing...I'm pretty green with this topic...

    Any links, names, models will be really helpful . Please help !
    Thanks!

    While these are technically "road" rims the Mavic A119 should work for you.

    Sun's CR-18 still available in Silver? Great rim and lots of beef. Or a Mavic A-719.

    Things are more like they are now than they've ever been before.

    A little heavier so more aluminum. http://www.cambriabike.com/shopexd.asp?id=113417
    You should build it up with double butted spokes.
    Mavic rates it for 28 to 47mm tires.

    I'd think that any of the wider rims used on 29'er mountain bikes would do lovely for your tires. They are certainly wide enough to accept that width of tire and are intended for rougher riding than one would normally see on the street.

    Sorry I don't really have any specific suggestions since the only such rims I have are on my heavy load touring/errand bike. If it helps the rims and wheels have been 100% trouble free for the 3 years since I built up this bike. The rims in this case are Mavic T520's which appear to be no longer in their model lineup. I say "appear" because the Mavic web site doesn't seem to recognize cyclocross or 29'ers at all from what I could see.
    Model airplanes are cool too!.....

    Ritchey Girders are only like $10 - they put them on a lot of hybrids and other bikes. Heavy but super stout. They also have one just for the rear with offset spoke bed.
