    Rear rim: Odyssey Duralectric to a profile cassette - quick way to drop a couple hundred bucks.

    how do the duralectras ride? i always lace everything up to hula hoops, or araya 7x's. im looking at the primo pros or the new primos whenever they come out.

    As long a your talking about rims what would you suggest? A primo Hula Hoop or an Odyssey duralectra or an Odyssey Hazard lite.

    The duralectric is a Hazard Lite with special black chroming process - kick ass!

    you should defo get the new "oddyesy MIDWAY rim". it like a hazard lite but about twice as hard. hazard lite's always buckle easily but they are very light, hence "lite".
    To hell we ride...

    If your hub is broken, don't buy new a rim. That's incredibly stupid. You fix what's broke, not what isn't.
