Bling rim suggestions?

I've had a pair of 36 hole DA 7600 hubs sitting around for a while and am finally going to build them up for a new custom frame. Anyone have any good suggestions for 36 hole clincher rims? This will be my "nice" wheel set.

Find your local custom shop and get them to diamond-cut and polish the lip of the rim. Pure bling.

My friend has been using DT rims to build his last 2 wheel sets and they are some nice rims. I forget the model numbers he used but I would look into those both wheels came out looking really cool.

Hi,
my wife has the Open Pro Ceramic rims. I'm jealous.
If the bronze-ish color goes with your frame, that would be
bling in my book.

As I stated in another thread (or rather all over the place and to echo terror's point):

Deep V's baby, deep V's.

the problem with the deep V's is that you can't get them in silver anymore.
anyone know where i could find some?

racer sportif out of canada has a pair that for US$125, shipping included. that's about the same price you'd pay for cxp33s and deep vs.

for those rims, you still have to put rim strips on them, but you can put colored electrical tape or whatever, the holes are for weight saving since those rims are 46mm wide

Man, if I'd known about those clearance rims (actually, I think I checked--they must've just gone on sale) before, I would have bought a pair of those instead of the MA3's I'm building up my new wheels with.

I'm terrified of cracking the eyelets. I know statistically it's not terribly likely, but it's irritating. Ano doesn't actually fix anything, it's spec hype. Grr.
