Can you buy just rims like this? The hubs and spokes are fine (other than a couple), so I'd rather not buy a whole new wheelset. Thanks!
The 30mm Kinlin should be on your list. Honestly, the aero difference between this rim and something like an AC 420 has to be next to nothing. You're talking about a couple mm.

The Velocity rim is interesting, but at 750grams it's a tank. I'm not a WW, but geeez.

It's up to you, but I think there are some reasonable options without going to carbon.
