    rigida dp 18

    for my work horse i'm looking for new rims. as i'm in love with the dp 18, i was wondering whether they're available without breaking surface too. if not could anyone suggest me rims similar in quality/price?
    thanks!

    yep you can get them with out a braking surface, but they will still have a definent ridge which obviously shows where it should be, unlike deep v's. If you are going to buy dp18's get them with the braking surface.
    derailleur? I hardly know her

    that's an interesting recommendation...
    i've had both, dp18 and deep V. While indeed the Deep V (non-machined) is flush and smooth, the painted dp18's without braking surfaces look just as clean from a foot or two back.
    IMO, if you're going brakeless, get the non-machined. they look very clean, and they're very cheap.
    get em here, or your LBS. (cheapest price i've found on the net)
    DP18's on the cheap
