    Alex DA-16 rims best choice ?

    Hi all.

    The last piece in the puzzle for upgrading my Swift is rim choice. Not a huge choice out there for light, narrow 406 rims it seems. Mostly, I'm finding Alex DA-16's and I'm wondering if anyone here has any opinions or experiences to offer.

    Anything else I should be looking at ?

    FWIW, I'm in the UK, and need a 32 hole rim.

    Velocity makes rims in 406 with an excellent reputation. You can find good descriptions of some at Peter White Cycles.

    Just to close this thread out, I just found some velocity razors for $35.00 a pair on ebay. I snatched em up, and they should be with me shortly. No machined sidewallls on an anodized rim... hope it won't be a major problem
