Hi all,

I need some new 26" rims but I'm struggling to find any new ones that work with rim brakes.

Any recommendations? They'll be laced to 32 hole Deore XT 770 hubs.

Cheers,

Jim

Thanks will check them out, anyone any other suggestions? My budget is £25 - £40 per rim.

Check out Halo. They do a few rims that will work with rim brakes such as the SAS and Whiteline.

I have some MAVIC X517 SUP’s in grey with 32 holes I could sell, very little wear to the brake surfaces.

Let me know via PM if interested.

I should have some new x517's in silver and some new d521 also in silver. I'll just check the drilling.

I have a stash of 26" rim brake rims, from wtb dual duty with very little use through to NOS campy rims.

What would your ideal rim be?

Thanks for replies, it's just my luck that on Monday I asked my local bike shop to build me some wheels with Andra 30 rims (he could only get Sputnik in 700c). Hopefully they'll be ok.
