    In need of a rim

    Where's the best deal on 650b rims? Is there anything else on the market besides Stan's and Velocity's?

    laced up a set of the Alex XD Lite rims just recently to check them out.....for approx $25 per rim they're a heckuva bargain. Alex has been making decent rims for a long time but i kinda wonder if their ubber low prices scare folks away ????

    Was it easy to mount the tires? Do you do mail order? My LBS is very slow at ordering stuff.
