    New question here. Ritchey Rock WCS rims?

    I bought this nice wheel, a front only unfortunately, but I'd like to make it a pair. I'd never come across the Rock WCS rim before, but I'm assuming that it's decent, else why would someone have laced it to a titanium Hope hub? Can anyone date it for me, or comment on its quality?
    5 is the old new black; 6 is the new new black...

    Yeah, they were supposed to be good stuff - probably the same rim as 1996's Rock 395??

    I do not think so. Rock 395 ERD =546, Rock WCS ERD 548

    In my experience Ritchey WCS rims were light and... Well, they were light.
