    Rims for my Tactik?

    I just bought a 2005 Norco Tactik. Sweet ride, smooth off the drops, jumps, etc. And manuals like a dream with that 24" back tire. The short time ive had it had already improved my riding. Only thing I question is the rims. They are double wall, but theres no label on them and taht concerns me..is it another one of those build a sweet bike and stick a cheap part on deals?

    Should i buy new rims, and if so what would you suggest.

    I do alot of street riding and shore type riding with some DJ mixed in.

    I looked on their website and I've never heard of those rims. Buy some single track or double track rims once you've destoyed those rims. That way you can get some use out of them.

    Look at Mavic EX729s. Awesome rims, you'll be hard pressed to get them outta true let alone destroy them.
