Deep V's for Cross
Has anyone ran a Velocity Deep V for their cross/commuter bike? I have a set of IRC Mythos Cross Tires (42c) and was wanting to build up a nice looking wheelset for my Bianchi SISS and the DeepV's sounded nice. Would this work? Or are the rims too narrow? Should I get narrower tires? Any help would be great. Thanks, Preston

deep Vs are not very friendly with wide tires.
they will be a pain to mount, and roll off when cornering hard.
if you still want that deep look, go velocity chukkers; they're wider.
