Velocity has been listening to feedback from the fixed freestyle and bike polo crowd. These riders want a stronger rim—one that’s even burlier than their venerable 700c Deep V. The answer, it turns out, was as simple as re-issuing their mountain bike Deep V ATB rim in 700c diameter. It’s 32mm deep x 24mm wide as opposed to 30mm deep and 19mm wide.
The new rim is called the Chukker. Velocity would like your input on what drillings they should make available. They plan on offering their standard anodized colors with non-machined sidewalls (to keep the cost down). Visit velocityusa.blogspot.com for more info.
