These rims are lovely to behold. Not much (or anything) like them. Not in 26" anyway. The only other rim (that I know of) that compares is the Velocity Cliffhanger and to get a polished rim they are significantly more expensive. Got these to build a set of wheels for my vintage Bridgestone MB-1 turned loaded touring rig. Wanted a rim brake / tubeless compatible/ wide and strong 26" rim that looked as nice as my hubs. Check. Check. Check. Check. The rims built up very well and set up tubeless super easy with my Rene Herse Rat Trap Pass tires. Quick delivery and well packaged. Thanks VO!!!
Ordered one pair for a customer, one for myself, super excellent Polish, set up super well tubeless with panaracer tires, will purchase again
The rims came properly packaged and protected. I had to wait on spokes and brakes to complete the wheels.
The frame is a 1981 Mercian Audax built to my measurements, first built up in 1982. I cold set the rear triangle from 120 to 130 mm in 2010 and fit 700C wheels with Campagnolo Chorus hubs and Deep Vee Rims. Those wheels will go on another bike. A Centaur 10 speed13-29 cassette, Campagnolo Triple (30-42-53) and derailleurs completed that conversion. I added braze-ons before a repaint in 2013 and converted to brifters.
I like the classic aluminum look of the Chorus hubs and found NOS ones for this build. The 42 mm tires have only 2-3 mm clearance in the chain stays. but that will work. I think the results are much in line with Velo-Oranges take on bikes. The imperfect roads are not such a pain in the derriere, now.
