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.

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.
