Bicycle Wheel Warehouse Commuter HD rims are designed to compete with Mavic A319 rims. The advantage that the Commuter HD rims had when they were designed, was the pre-existing benchmark of performance that A319's represented. At 23.5mm tall, the Commuter HD rim's profile is much taller than the A319's profile height, in order to boost rim strength. They are 24.5mm wide with an 18.5mm inner width, and they offer a clear sidewall wear indicator. If Mavic is a must, then the A319's wil do the trick. If solid performance is the primary goal however, we recommend considering the Commuter HD to build up your next hybrid or touring wheel set.
We're building these wheels with Shimano Alivio 6-bolt disc QR hubs. Since the Commuter HD rim is rim brake compatible, these wheels are both rim brake and 6-bolt disc brake compatible.
Laced three cross with quality DT Swiss stainless spokes and brass nipples, these wheels will work beyond the dreams of your old stock wheels, hands down.
