Velocity is moving forward full-speed with their US-production, developing new rims and upping production. The newest being their Aileron disc-specific “aero” rim. This tubeless-ready rim is 28mm tall, 25mm wide and 480 grams. Best of all, at least ATMO, it’s made in the USA.
Velocity has been manufacturing rims in Florida since last year and here’s how it’s done, in just over a minute.
Pacenti is a name you might not know but his contributions to the cycling industry are too long to list here. His work has ranged from Merlin to Velocity and now, Bens Cycle has a full stock of his rims. I’ve never had personal experience with these, but I know others that have. See the Bens Cycle stock here.
The new H+Son Todestrieb rim has quickly become the rim of choice for many fixed freestyle riders. Here Steven Jensen puts his wheels to work in a local park. The last two lines are crazy good.
Mirror-polished, deep-section rims can in fact look very classy on your track bikes. Velocity‘s Deep Vs may carry the “H” word stigma but if you’re looking for a rim that will literally withstand years of abuse and still look classy, check out the new polished Deep Vs that Bens Cycle just got in stock!
Justin Spinelli has spent years as a professional racer and mechanic. His company, Luxe Wheelworks is nestled in the freshly-established HQ in Boston, where he assembles high-end wheels for clients all over the US. Even if you have no use for his wheelbuilding expertise, you really should check out his blog for some wheel porn.
Also, Justin, thanks for the water bottles!
I worked with Tzu Sing on the design for the new Todestrieb rim. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my photos of the rim in time for this video to drop, but expect a little review in the coming weeks. In the meantime, this new video by Wolf Drawn, featuring Tyler Johnson should hold you over just fine. Loving the bump jumps man.
I will say that these rims are completely bad-ass.
