I havent used a Nexus rim but I have used some of the other ones. It appears they have dropped the nexus - I can't remember it anyway.

Their Excellence is very good and strong - the Excellight will build up lighter than most factory builts if you choose your hubs wisely. And the Nemesis is a good allround tubular rim.

If its a strong, multi purpose rim you are looking for, I would go for the Excellence.

The Chrono F20 is rediculous - treat yourself with Record hubs and DT Swiss Revolutions - whoaaa!!

I'd second that. I end up riding over at least 10 cattle grids whenever I ride and my Excellences have stood up to 5 years of beating.

lelobysfoot, hamster....thanks for the info.


i was really looking for info on the master and nexus since these are box section rims. they are very much like a wolber gentleman gta, fiamme red, mavic montlery, or ma2.


i've built wheels with the excellence and excellight and they are very nice. but not really what i'm looking for.
