    very good quality.
    depth of profile, google and check the actual dimensions for yourself.
    check your LBS and favortie OBS.
    color depends on rim, deep v have the most selection i believe.
    ambrosio, mavic, etc.

    Deep-Vs are overkill if you're not really running on streets like NY. They're on heavier than aeroheads. Deep-Vs are deeper 19x30 aeroheads are 20x21.


    more color selection with deep-vs also more pricey.

    other options: mavic open pro/sport, dtswiss.

    lotsa a colors, approx 65 for rim alone (no hub, no spokes) and since your a new yorker you would appreciate their durabiity. Btw, you can get em up at king kog in brooklyn too.

    Great rims that will stay true if for a long time when done right. I have the Aerohead on my roadie. Had them for 3 years so far and love them still.

    Yes...I've seen a few pointed out in the ebay thread. Off the top of my head...I've got some unmachined Mavic Open 4CDs on my roadie in anodized dark grey.
