I've just won a lovely set of Sachs New Success hubs on ebay in the rather unusual 18/24 hole combination. Am looking for a set of (preferably) silver rims that will go with these. These will go on my vitus. Have seen that Velocity and Rigida make these, but can't find anyone that stocks them. Found one pair on CRC in black, but at 85 GBP a rim bit too pricey for me.
Does anyone on here have something I could use, or does anyone know a shop?
Any help is appreciated.

Can't help with the rims, but nice hubs you just bought! I had a bid but not high enough obviously, although I do have my NOS 32/32 set :D
I think the 18/24 combination makes them more suitable for some deep carbon rims than shallow aluminium ones, or at least some 30mm alu rims. Kinlin, Velocity, Rigida, something like that...

Brick Lane Bikes in London are the main dealers for Velocity in the UK - they have an online catalog. Given the low spoke count, you really need a fairly strong rim like a Velocity Deep Vee or Kinlin - 18 holes may be tricky though as 20/24 is the norm these days.
