|Alternative Aero Rims......Remerx or others?||PBLed|
Dec 4, 2003 4:36 PM
|I am looking for a very aerodynamic rim that is both cheap and durable but not necessarily the lightest thing out there for racing. It seems that the only option is the Deep V which isn't even that aero. I came across the Remerx Grand rim at http://www.remerx.cz/eng/index2.htm and it looked pretty good, but I couldn't find a price or any information about it. Any suggestions or information would be great.|
|don't know about Remerx, as for others...||seyboro|

|...let me suggest the Campy Atlanta 1996 rims. They are 38 mm deep and work very well if you are looking for an aero rim. I laced mine up with record hubs and DT aero spokes. Bombproof and once up to speed: fast, fast, fast. I found mine in the back of my LBS (paid $35.- each), but occasionally, I have seen the odd pair on ebay. Good luck hunting!|

|and 37mm+ height, it sounds a little delicate to me.
I just went through the same search and wasn't able to find much anything else. You can buy Zipp rims for $300 each if you're really desperate.
I'll be interested to see if anybody knows of any other cost effective options.
|Just realized it's the rim "above" that's 390g||B2|

|The Remerex T103 (non-aero rim) is 390g. The Remerex Grand is 600g. Now that sound more realistic for a 37mm profile alloy rim.
