    Surly Clown Shoe speculation

    Anybody have any information on their new rim? All I know of now is 100mm width and singlewall, correct? eyeletted? I just hope they have an undrilled option. God they're heinous.

    I've read that they are a bigger variant on the Rolling Darryl design, so no eyelets. But.....this is a purely speculative thread.

    Why are so many people, so upset about rims with big holes in them?

    If you could measure the strength of a Rolling Darryl with and without the holes.. it would be very small.

    Certainly won't affect the rim for flat spotting strength, but side to side with 82mm wide... makes almost no difference.. much stiffer than a narrow double wall rim for sure.

    Don't forget that they honk too, extra safety measure. Kidding aside, I am looking forward to these. Aren't they suppose to have double holes side by side running around the rim?
