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)

Looking for Rims: Not Deep-V, NMSW, polished finish, clincher?

I believe Araya makes em--anyone else?

Open-Pros dont come w/ NMSW, do they?

The aeroheads come with a NMSW and I hear they are pretty close to open-pros. I wish my Open-Pros were on my fixed and not my geared.

Thanks SRT--what do you mean by "close"? Weight? Quality?

If I were hellbent on getting some Araya clinchers, where would be the best place?

I am pretty sure they are close in weight and quality. Don't know about the Arayas though I am still pretty new to the fixed gear.

some polished SUN venus rims look nice and not too expensive. like 26 or 28 mm deep? But you can't beat Arayas.

The aeroheads are nowhere close the the open pros in qualitiy, weight or durability. They both suck. There are much better rim choices out there, for substantially cheaper.

Yeah Shamals are purty, but I'm really looking for a non-deep rim.
