Rims

(1/1)

ATSFfan:
I'm rebuilding my 1976 Mercian touring bike and would like to know what people are using for heavy-duty touring rims. I have 27" Super Champion Model 58s on right now (used them to do the entire TransAm trail in 1981 - they're bullet-proof!), but the 700C version of that rim is hard to find (long out of production). I'm considering the Bontrager "Clyde" and the Mavic "T520". Any other options are appreciated

biker_james:
My Cannondale came with Mavic T519's- now the 520 I understand. Nearly four years and I'm very pleased. I did break a few spokes (4 so far), but I think that was down to the wheel not being properly tensioned from the start. My wife has the same wheels and has never broken a spoke.
