Time to build a new wheelset- the set I built a few years back is beginning to show signs of being worn out. The wheels were done with Alex R390 36h rims, and have been great. If I could find more of these rims, I'd just use them and get on with it, but I can't (or haven't been able to so far).
I want to stay with the DT Swiss 36h tandem hubs that I have, and I want a rim that will comfortably mount a 700x25 tire, which means not wider than about 20mm. The Alex rims are 19mm I think. I also prefer a box section double eyeleted rim, but I'm beginning to think that's out of the question too.
So far what I've been able to dig up that more or less fits the bill are the Velocity Aerohead and Fusion rims. I have heard of the Fusion being used on tandems. (I probably should mention that we are a 290 lb. team and do only fast sport riding- no loaded touring)
Anybody have suggestions, recommendations, anecdotal experience, etc. ?
