Possible New Clyde Rim
Saw these posted on the Road Forum:
"The B43 AKA the Brisbane43, at 43mm deep, triple walled, and in drillings up to a 48h the B43 is the ultimate rim for tricking, and bike polo. If you're looking for stiffness, rigidness, pure strength, and the bling that goes with it, roll these on your whip. "
"We saw what people were using our original Deep V for, and asked them how they would make it even better. One thing we heard from the tricksters, and bike polo crowd was they wanted something a little wider. We had something in our arsenal already that would be just what people wanted, known originally as the Deep V ATB, the newly re-released Chukker has people talking. Itís everything great you expect from a Velocity rim. Itís got strength, durability, and can be used in a number of applications. It was once used more for the mountain bike crowd and would still be a great MTB rim, but it is now being rolled in a 700c size where it can be used for larger, stronger riders, in the tandem market, as well as someone looking to just be able to put their bike through its everyday punishment. The Chukker will make for the perfect bike polo rim, as well as a 700c tricking rim. You now will get all the benefits of the Deep V, with the added benefit of being able to roll a larger, wider tire. "
Any engineers out there or wheel builders who might offer an opinion on if these would offer some value to clydes/athenas, beyond the tried and true Deep Vs, Open Pros, etc?
