I'm eying up the new Surly Disc Trucker frame, & debating the whole bike option vs. doing a build (It'll likely be cheaper that way).
I noticed they're using the Alex Adventurer rims on it. They're a decent enough rim & I have them on my old 750 at the moment; however they are noted as a rim disc rim.
Thought it over & couldn't think of anything too awful about that since the worst that would happen is the rims wouldn't wear.
Does anyone here know of any real advantage (other than aesthetic) to using a disc specific rim for disc wheels?
