    I think SpeedGoat has some... or have your LBS contact Velocity directly.

    QBP and others will be stocking them for 2008.

    Kirk,

    What are your thoughts on the weight/stiffness, tire compatibility for the following rims:

    Velocity Blunt -480 gms
    Velocity Synergy -Weight 430gm?
    Sun Cr-18 -weight? availibility?

    Finally, I am working on a wheel build using the Americam Classic 130 hub, DT 14/17 revolution spokes and Blunt Rim. Wheel weight appears to be about 800 gms, which does not seem that light. Any thoughts on a possible lighter stiffer build for a 170 lb rider?
