    The best advice I can give you is to measure it yourself or take it to your bike store

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Your first problem is that you're riding triple-walled Alex rims in 2009.

    Why let unused rims sit on shelf?

    Because they're unnecessarily overbuilt?

    I think I solved my braking problem...Who in there right mind would paint wheels black?

    I took a wire wheel to my Alex doubles and now I heave a nice rough surface for braking.....and it looks cool too So I guess the Alex's will sit until I bust a wheel, A'll be sure to post pics when done with the bike.

    I'm getting black Rhynolites. But I'm also getting Shimano DXR brakes so I'm not too worried about the black rims.

    People without brakes and/or people who can afford better brake pads.

    I run colored rims and my bike stops on a dime.

    I am the new guy. But I say a ryno lite xl and a dxr [I have an XT an ryno xl pretty much the same] is a very nice combo if set up properly.

    I had Kool-Stop's before they worked for a good week and then went down hill from there. the cable was already stretched and it was re tuned afterwards brakes still sucked...I took the black junk off and now it looks cooler AND it brakes!
