The Bicycle Wheel Warehouse 30mm tall Aero rim, (475g) is one of our strongest race oriented aluminum clincher 700c rims. The silver ano finish rim is very attractive, with it's brilliant shine and deep luster. Keep it clean and the rim surface will attract and mesmerize. The tapered aero 30mm x 19mm profile (HxW) shape is both strong and functional. Strong, in that the rim doesn't flex; functional in that the material is thick where it's needed most, at the apex of the rim where it holds spoke tension. With our BWW rims, (including these Aero's), we use internal stainless steel washers that are 3D formed to align with the spoke hole in the rim's cavity, as well as mate with the nipples' shape, so that everything is nice and precise as it should be.
We are building these BWW Aero rims up with 32 hole, Shimano Tiagra 4600 series (8/9/10 spd), laced three cross front and rear, using DT Swiss silver stainless 2.0mm/14g spokes and brass nipples. This lace pattern offers excellent lateral strength while still allowing each wheel to absorb a fair amount of road vibration. All Shimano hubs feature a loose ball bearing, cup and cone mechanism. Shimano 4600 Tiagra hubs weigh in at about 500g* for the set. These hubs have an aluminum hub shell, steel axles, and steel freehubs, that will resist cassette bite and hold up for a super long time. The approximate sheel set weight is 2025g*.
As a final word, disregard the wheel set price in terms of establishing the wheel set's value. This is an excellent rim, built with quality stainless wire, and reliable Shimano hubs. Given the rim weight, it's likely that these wheels will feel spry and lively at the bars, and solid rocking while out of the saddle. We are on a mission to sell through our road silver non-disc rims and hubs, (even though they're classics), hence the clearance price.
