    Bent Valiant? Which rim to get ?

    I have a bent Bontrager Valiant rim and need to get a replacement. What is a good rim that is comparably priced?

    Went from a Bonti Valiant to a Sun UFO. No problems lacing it up, and it's still rolling true and round 2+ years later. (Knock on wood). Also good luck with Velocity Synergy (might want to look at the Velocity Aerohead for a lightweight rim).

    Was a bit lighter than the Valiant I had. Liked the Valiant, but getting my hands on any Bonti rim was a pain in the arse - local Trek dealers were useless. Didn't know about product, didn't want/care about getting them...etc.

    So how did the Valiant bend - would another be the right choice - or maybe a slightly beefier alternative.

    Good luck,
