So…it’s official. The Superbes will be built the week after next.
The problem is, what rims to get?
I want to get something with a very low profile, even an old style box section rim. It has to be eyeletted of course. And it has to be silver. And it has to be a clincher - otherwise I’d just get the red label Fiammes.
They’ll be 36H 3x front and rear.
So far the possible contenders are:
-DT RR1.1 (but they look too modern I think)
-Velocity Aero or Fusion
Any one tried these Velocitys or got any other suggestions?
Joel, Rogaine - I’m expecting you to help out here!
the velocity razor is (I think) the only eyeletted rim in their line-up. Very similar to the open-pro. When a customer wants open pros and you can’t get them (common) you get Razors instead. Nice stuff. Support Australian manufacturers!
Old or newer superbe? Ive had both, and though asthetically LESS pleasing, if you build old superbe (camp style) radially, expect to warp the flange walls.
I was told in advance but went for it regardless Theyre still rolling after 12 months working on them everyday in rain, snow, ice, and a bit of sun here and there.
Aeroheads are great if you are light and kind to your wheels. Lynn at CTA built me Aeroheads on Phils (28H) and they lasted 2 months due to me being 90kg and then I’d put my luggage on my back which is another 30kg…
