    Choppers US rims (or any other 36h 100mm rim)

    Hey all,

    This is going to hopefully result in a summer project, but I need to see what's out there first.

    First off, I need to track down a 36 hole 100 mm rim. So far all I've found is the Choppers US ones. I know they are double walled and heavy, but quality-wise, are they decent? How are they holding up?

    Are there any other manufacturers making a 36 hole 100 mm rim that would be better?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the link. Any idea how those compare to the Weinmann's?

    I'm just looking for something durable, mostly. All I've run so far has been Surly rims and whatever is on my Vinson.

    The choppers US rims are indeed Weinmanns. They are tough as nails and just as heavy. Really heavy. Like...really heavy. But tough.

    Does it have to be 100mm? Surly is making an 36 hole undrilled Rolling Darryl in 80mm now. I'd go with those in a heartbeat.

    Actually stumbled onto that very thing this morning, and think that's the direction I'll go. I've got some 32h Darryls right now that have been pretty awesome.
