29er Rim Suggestions
I am looking for some new rims for my ride. I currently have some velocity's and they aren't satisfying me. I warrantied my cracked dyads for blunts that now are cracking so I want something different. Mavic's TN719 seems ok, but 19mm wide seems pretty narrow and I thought my dyads were narrow at 24mm! The Blunts are 28, and that seems like a good width to me, I'd be willing to go up to 32, but 35 means I'd have to buy new tires, and seems excessive for me.
I was also thinking about the Salsa Semi's (gordo's are too wide), or some wtb thing. The Salsa's worry me becuase they only have two walls. I liked the blunts circular support in the cross section.
I want eyelets and hopefully a welded seam too.
I'm not racing, I'm 220lb, I use this bike for everything. Really the blunts seem pretty perfect on paper, I'm just having too many issues.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
