16" (305mm) rim needed.. help !

i am having quite a hard time locating a 16" (305mm) rim in the drilling i need (28h)
where have they all gone ? i figured low spoke counts would be more common in such a small size wheel as strength is not much of an issue but i found very few options:

velocity aeroheat (my main choice but US distributor is out of stock)
alex 16x1.5 (too wide for my application)

i tried gaerlan and a couple other folder/recumbent specialists/velocity retailers with no luck..

does any one have any ideas where there might be one lying around in stock ??

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Bumping this old thread because I too am looking for a 16" (305 mm) rim with 28 holes. Has to be aluminum. The only thing I've found is a whole bicycle for about $110 shipping included.

Ideas?
