What I meant was, the tandem came with derailleur gears and very poor cable operated disc brakes.
It also came with rims and frame bosses suitable for rim brakes, but no rim brakes fitted.
I upgraded the disc brakes to bigger hydraulic ones and fitted a Magura hydraulic rim brake on the back. (Three brakes in total)
I have now bought a Rohloff rear hub, so I need a 32h rim, suitable for a MTB tandem and rim brakes, to build on to it.
For an MTB tandem, I thought we'd be best off with a downhill rim, as they are stronger than regular XC rims.
32h tandem rims are a bit of an oddity though, as are rim braked downhill rims these days.
32h, rim braked DH rims are a rarity amongst rarities.
Thanks to the replies here, I know what I'm looking for now.
