I figured you guys might have a good answer to this. The Mavic site really leaves a lot to be desired data wise and i'm at the tail end of planning my build.
The bike is a randoneering/touring bike. I'm going to be running a 700c wheelset with 135mm rear drop (100mm front) with Avid BB7 (road) disc brakes.
I'm having trouble selecting a rim. I'm looking for all black (no machined braking surface) in a 36 hole drilling.
I'm shooting for durability here. The TN719 has been suggested as an all black rim as i can't find an all black A719. Does anybody have an positive or negative experiences with the TN719 used in non-mountain bike ways, or any other good rim suggestions?
I'm not dead set on mavic either, they've just always been given positive reviews for touring/randoneering.
- Disc Brakes so no machined side-wall
- 36 hole drilling
- 700c x 28 (possibly 700c x 32 (up to a 35))
thanks for any feedback!
