Lighter Velocity B43 rim alternatives?

Hi,

I've heard good things about the performance and looks of Velocity B43 rims. However, I also hear they are heavy. I want to eventually put something comparable in looks and performance on a...

Maybe. But compared to what we can do today, they are very plain. And I did say "the Model T of today." It's the principle of minimalism, not entirely the esthetic I'm talking about. Although the...

Thanks, guys. I was worried there for a bit that I might have to return them. They look pretty beat up. I'm surprised anyone would sell tires as "new" looking like they do. But, if you say it's okay,...

20" Shwalbe Marathon tire question
