|wondering if any of you know of a source for tubular rims that are moderately aero and don't come black anodized 700c 24 and 28 hole. Have been wasting a lot of time searching. araya makes one, the sas-230. cronometro.com apparently has these; but is there anything else out there? thanks much.|

|Sun (Sunn/Ringle) M19 II. The Sun rims are probably lighter than most other tubular rims and are bulletproof. I rode with an M17 for many years and still have the front 28 hole on a Phil hub. I now have a pair of M19s on DA hubs.|

still a few good ones around.
i would personally go with a cxp30 but they aint easy to find in the spoke holes you are looking at. FIR also make some aero profile tubular rims that are well rated but i havent seen silver ones for a while.
i have whole tubular wheels with silver rims if you are interested but both are low spoke as per manufacturer.
anyway good luck

|Try http://www.worldclasscycles.com on their track components page they list anumber of araya and fir rims. I have no idea if they are road suitable. I do know that these guys sell a lot of tubular tires (at great prices I might add) so they may be able to get you what you need. Roger is the guy who responds to emails etc....try them|| |
