    Velocity Fusion Rims

    I read that they are between AeroHeads and DeepV's.

    Anyone have an opinion or experience on them?

    I had a rear wheel built with a black, unmachined fusion laced to a formula hub. It was a nice inexpensive combo. I have deep v rims on my bike now and I don't like them as much, they feel clunky and heavy.

    I have 'em. Awesome wheels, they've stood up well, and I'm pretty big. Not too heavy.

    Low quality rim compared to open pros. No reinforced eyelets. But the unmachined version looks good. I have build and ridden one as a rear wheel, and i am reasonable satisfied.
    link to a bike build up with fusion rear and aerohead front rim.

    I've been riding them for a while. Solid rims, and definitely worth the money.
    FS or trade: 56cm Schwinn tange prestige Prologue TT frameset and front wheel. $225 obo.

    My wheels are Silver, nonmachined fusions laced to Promax SB's, 36h. They look really pretty. I was hit by a car last month, and both rims were wonky. The rear was trued back up, but the front needed replacing. I don't know if that means that they are strong or weak...nothing else on the bike was damaged, but I don't know the extent of the accident as I woke up in the hospital 5 hours later with no memory of it, asking all the doctors "How's my bike?!!?!"

    I like them though.
