Imagine Carbon Deep-Aluminum Wheels
There are many people who admire those really really deep carbon wheels but either cannot afford them and/or the roads around where they live are just so full of potholes that it's not worth the risk. That is my position, so i just thought wouldn't it be great if there were aluminium wheel sets that were as deep as some of the Zipp's, the HED's, and maybe even the Blackwell Research 100mm Wheel. But a wheel like this would mostly just be for aesthetics, since it'll probably weigh like 2-3 times more then the carbon version. The deepest aluminum wheel set that I've ever come across are the Velocity B43s, which are 43mm deep. This might be a stupid idea for some or even most people but since i haven't found anyone talking about this on the web i thought i might just put the idea out there.
Thanks for Reading.
