    Deep V rims

    Hi, Hope I'm in the right place but can anyone recommend some deep V rims for use with disc brakes......deep as possible while staying the right side of sensible money wise.

    Any random fixie brakeless non-machined rim can work. Disc rims are the same as rim brake rims, just that rim brake rims have a machines brake track.

    I'm about to use build up a wheelset with Velocity Chukkers on my disc brake cross bike. They're wider and deeper than standard deep Vs.

    Just be forewarned, those Deep Vs weigh as much as some dedicated downhill/freeride rims. Not the best option for the weight conscious rider. The Chukkers I mentioned above weigh ~650g a rim. More than my 26" Rhynolite XLs, but I'm also 260-270 with gear.

    But sometimes looks come first . . . show before go.

    The rims he mentioned are both available in 700c. The Chukker is an appropriate width for mtb tires and available with non-machined sidewalls so it will look like a disc-only rim
