Alternative Aero Rims......Remerx or others?(6 posts)

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!
Never heard of the Remerx before, but at 390gB2

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.

Good Luck,
Bryan
Just realized it's the rim "above" that's 390gB2

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