Who produces new 27 inch double walled Aluminum rims?

Anyone?

If not, are there any new 27 inch rims available? Who has good quality?

Too bad they just discontinued the polished finish last year. Weinmann LP-18s are also available, and look decent. They are narrower than the Sun.

Did they? I am glad I bought a spare pair of polished CR-18s last year.

I sure hope the market's move away from polished aluminum parts rebounds soon... I would love to see a return of polished aluminum rims, seat posts, cranks, stems etc as the norm (or at least a common option).

You're right, it seems I didn't understand what I was reading on their website. You can't just click on the model, you have to click on the wheel size as well.

They claim to make them, but just try to find any for sale... I just tried Google... there are some old references to Dyads in 27", and a reference to a special run of 48 hole Dyads in 27" for tandems, but not much else, and the even less for Synergy. There is an Australian source for the Twin Hollow...

I'll put a vote in for the Twin Hollow. Granted, they are single-wall, but unbelievably well made, nicely finished, and understated with a distinct C&V appearance.

VO has a pile of polished 700C rims in stock still.
