    I run those rims, hanging won't damage them. However, be aware that they are very light rims, and mine need truing often after training sessions. If I was doing it again I'd just use Deep V's or...

    Chinese rims

    I'm considering getting some 50mm-ish Chinese carbon rims for some training/casual racing wheels. Are there any sources/eBay sellers you folks can recommend for cheap but reliable product?

    Thanks!

    My 200 times improved at my local (slow) track last year by entering T1 (333 track) quite a bit hotter than I had been, the opposite of what Carleton seems to be suggesting.
