best place to buy rims?

I posted this over in the road cycling forum, but maybe the mechanics could be of a bit more help. I'm looking to build up a low spoke count wheelset probably 16/20 or 20/24 and i'm having trouble finding rims with the number of spoke holes I need.

Ideally I would like to get some Velocity Deep-V's....anyone know of a good site to get these with the number of holes I need?

You might want to try Yellow Jersey. http://www.yellowjersey.org/velrim.html
They are a very reputable shop and they have a good connection with Velocity. I ordered some Aeroheads from them and they came fairly quickly - drop shipped from Velocity themselves so you shouldn't have a problem getting the spoke pattern you want. BTW, I'd go 20/24 just to be safe.

Good luck.

thanks for the info.....

my current wheelset is a 16/20 and I've ridden it for about 1500mi with no problems....(I only weigh 135)..so i'm not too worried about breaking spokes...
