The finish of the rim was excellent but the rims themselves were fairly soft. I am not sure if the alloy was 6061 or not but it didn’t feel like the T6 hardened version which offers more strength.
I have been a wheelbuilding for more than 40 years, using dozens of different rims. I have found that the VO Enterprise rim builds wheels easily with very even tension on the spokes. My experience is that even spoke tension is the biggest factor in smooth rolling, long-lasting wheels. As a fan of classic bicycles, the appearance of the VO Enterprise rim appeals to me more than any other rim on the market.
