    Tubular Aluminum rims ?

    I am looking for aluminum tubular rims that have a wider profile (23mm or more) such as the major TOM from Velocity.

    http://www.velocityusa.com/default.asp?contentID=756

    Anyone know of other rim manufacturers that make similar rims?

    Wider, Aluminum and Tubular = Better cornering I hear

    Good Solid Glue job should do, though those may have a wider brake track.
    You're only are allowed a 33mm wide tire, by race officials ..
    at present, thats only 5mm wider on each side..

    That Major Tom rim looks like a great choice. I'd also look at the time-tested Ambrosio Nemesis. Not quite as wide but an excellent choice for cross.

    Sun Vista Cruiser is another possibility, though I have no experience with them and so can't make a recommendation for or against.
