Deeep rims - some of these are now out of production *

FIR Sc350*, Gipiemme Tecno 716 (limited distribution here, but available in the UK), Dodici (from VintagePista), DRC UFO Speed, FIR Super Rialto, Campagnolo Atlanta, American Classic AC420 (is available as a rim only in Europe), H+Son (this is aimed at street fixsters).

Those are the ones I can think of. All or them are very hard to find. They lost favour with the onslaught of carbon fibre rims and largely went underground. Urban fixed wheel riders have bought up most of the remaining rims, but they are also the ones causing them to come back from the cold. Giant and Felt are stocking 40mm deep alloy rims on some of their TT/Track bikes, but you can't buy them separately.
