    They will not work.

    I need a 28 hole, and wider rim.

    The only Alex that will work for me is the 101.

    I need a rim with a bead width of 20 -23 mm, and a depth of at least 9 mm.

    These are listed as current at the alex website

    http://www.alexrims.com/product_deta...6&cat=6&id=113

    Suggest you contact them to find a set. I've communicated with them before and they answer email ... as do Velocity in US/AU.

    Looks like I misread the page. That Alex does come in 28H. I will call Gaerlan on Monday. Thanks, and keep sending any leads.
