After all the trouble I had looking for rims that held up to the kinds of abuse we’re putting on them, Velocity has answered the call.

My Deep Vs have been through hell and somehow, they’re still rolling. The only problem is, they aren’t wide enough for wider tires. A 35c rolls off the bead with no hesitation. Now, with the Chukker, it looks like I’ll be able to run even bigger tires.

Good job guys!

Now the real test is if they’ll hold up for Wonka… Every other spoke on his rear wheel has stress fractures like this, indicating rotation and pressure given on the same side. Pretty impressive. I’ve never seen this before. Even on mine. But then again, I’m not 180 bunnyhopping 7 stairs.
