I found a pair of Araya RBJ1's and profile hubs (cassette). Could somebody tell me if the RIMS are any good because it sounds like they are from Japan and i like American made parts with some exceptions. I have also heard the some pros use them too. So are they any good for under 200 bucks for the whole deal. Thanks.
I run one in the back, my friend runs one as well. they are fine.
good luck finding US made rims....
No offense, but when it comes to bicycles, you'll have a hard time being patriotic. Not only that, but even American made components are sourced from foreign materials.
