    looking for offset rim recommendations

    I'm going to be building up a Big Dummy this spring and want to build some seriously tough wheels for it.

    Who makes good rims with offset spoke holes? I like Velocity rims, but the only offset 26" model they seem t have doesn't look as beefy as I'd like. I'm hoping to find something more the shape (and width) of the Velocity Cliffhanger, but with an offset shape. non-machined sidewalls would be a plus, since these will be disc wheels.




    Something more like this, but in 26" (the aerohead is only 700c)



    Any ideas?
    from Minneapolis, with bike love

    Bontrager Mustang. That's what I had built up for myself.
