Yes, I proposed this to Velocity a while back and they went through with it.

The Blunt 29er rim will be/is a direct replacement option to the Rhythm series rims from Bontrager. ERD is the same and now, they have punched them with 28 holes.

This rim will use the same length spokes too. Even though the Bont. Rim is 5mm offset.

Available in Black and Silver for now - MD did tell me that they have one pair in Lime Green PC.

So, dig up your Taco'ed Rhythm 29er wheels and relace one of these on there.
