Worse than it sounds I'm afraid. Been looking for some nice 32h rims for a while.

Do I bite the bullet and go new school?
How about these on M900 hubs..

Can't really bring myself to do it. But it makes sense :?
Opinons please! Hang fire, or build the wheels cos when I take the labels off no one knows anyway?

ta..

Yep these are NOS M900.

I have some 36h Bullseye hubs ready to be built onto some NOS campy rims (cheers chris :D ) but these are red - and I am determined for a no colour anno build on this one :x

Sun though....are they proper old school then? Never used them BITD, always stuck to Mavic and Campy.

Also - how heavy are they? :lol:

Good point John, some of the Mavics do look more retro.

right..bikepro is again my friend for Sun :)

http://www.bikepro.com/products/rims/rimtables.html

Also just found these...

http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/category.asp ... 0&sfile=1=

Old Bonty BCR1 and 2 rims. Remember these having a very square profile.
Weird, looking for ages, then looks like there may be two options here.

Views/opinions on either appreciated - not used either before.
Thanks for the Elite tip off..

ta!
