Rear rim: Odyssey Duralectric to a profile cassette - quick way to drop a couple hundred bucks.

As long a your talking about rims what would you suggest? A primo Hula Hoop or an Odyssey duralectra or an Odyssey Hazard lite.

The duralectric is a Hazard Lite with special black chroming process - kick ass!

you should defo get the new "oddyesy MIDWAY rim". it like a hazard lite but about twice as hard. hazard lite's always buckle easily but they are very light, hence "lite".

If your hub is broken, don't buy new a rim. That's incredibly stupid. You fix what's broke, not what isn't.
