What rims?(4 posts)

What rims?dvancleve

I am looking for a rim recommendation for my Bontrager CX. It can only clear about a 35mm actual width tire in back, but I am thinking something wider that typical road rims might still be a good idea. The two that popped into my mind are Velocity Dyads and Sun CR-18. What else is there that isn't too expensive? Should I just go with road rims?

Thanks, Doug

Salsa DelGados (a cx rim) otherwise I'm happy with Velocity Fusions.

I'm running the Velocity Escape (tubulars), but have had very good luck on the road with the Aeroheads.

I tried my GL330 road wheels on a few 'cross races, but they weren't quite up to the task...

...they used to make it in 700c size, and I think they still do. It was a bit wider than most road rims - something like 21 or 23mm.
