Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Rim recommendation needed.

I am looking for a nice box or very slight aero profile, preferably eyeleted rim with unmachined sidewalls, 32 or 36 hole, in black, clincher only. Does such a rim exist? Are unmachined openpros available? Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

open pro cd's have an anodized sidewall that gives the appearance of being unmachined, but they are dark grey, not black.

a few Alex rims come in unmachined black. But they're not terribly "nice" rims.
How about disc-specific rims?
