i emailed dodici a year ago, and they said they would get a u.s. retailer within a year. i think its been a year now.

anyways, those 405 rims are nothing special - find an alternative or have dodici ship them to the us.

Buy the lips and polish them, Its round. You can strip them and get a polisher to easily make a smooth surface

Uh, what?

https://www.bikeman.com/RM4377.html?u...ign=GoogleBase

Formation face high polish, $75.

Same profile as the Eero and Dodicidicicci, just lacks the second heavier-making interior wall. But hey, if all you want is a ridiculously heavy, shiny rim, just go for the Eighth Inch Julian:

Uh huh.

So what about the Formation Face rims, which you can purchase online right now, in high polish silver, for $75, and has the exact same depth/profile as the Dodici 405s?

Lilcphoto just ordered a set and I'm sure he'll write a little something when he builds them up.

My lady's in the process of building one laced to a Gran Compe hub too. Those rims are pretty damn nice.
