Unfortunately, other than knowing that Mike Garcia builds a quality wheel, I know little of these rims, but they certainly do exist.

|I built a set of wheels with them for a bigger man in the club and he seems to love them and they are holding up well.They are 19mm wide and 25 mm tall and are a rounded aero shape V not boxy.Black Ano. is the only choice. They weigh 475 gm and have an erd of 591 for your spoke software. Add 2.5 mm to this # to get the spokes to come even with the bottom of the slot in the nipple.Hope this helps!|

|I've got a set of fusion rims laced to edco hubs and they have held up really well. I've got about 1500-2000 mi on them and they are still dead straight.
try this link below, Eric built my wheels and did a fine job

|I've a pair laced to Ultegra hubs. Fuss-free and great for everyday use and abuse.
The rim joint is not welded but I don't find it a problem.

|Like Chuckjg, Eric built me a pair of Fusions with Edco hubs as well. Priced right and certainly faster than the Mavics they replaced. Eric is also really easy to work with. |
My only issue is the Sapim CXray spokes. I have broken 2 of them in the last 6 months, maybe because of my weight - 195lbs.
