Strengths:    comfortable, strong, decent quality.

Weaknesses:    weight

Bottom Line:   
this rim is 480g, with wide tires and spokes it becomes heavy, but its not for racing.
It'd make a touring rim. It has slight flex/comfort built in, similar to MA3/ Open Sport, strong enough for most people. but not very stiff. Slightly stiffer than MA3/ Open Sport.

Strengths:    Well priced. Good looking,very strong rim! Best for Touring and commuting.

Weaknesses:    Hard to get in 36 hole silver. A little heavy.

Bottom Line:   
Had these laced to 36 hole Phil Woods. Bombproof!. I took a hit on a hidden pothole on a rainy fast descent during a Metric Century the other day that about threw me off the bike. Checked the true after the ride. Didn't even need to touch it up!

Velocity Dyad?

Has anyone built up these rims? They're similar in profile to the A23 or the Aerohead, but they're 24 mm wide. Not to start a tubular vs. clincher debate or anything, but I'm wondering if that extra mm or two would mean much lower pressure without pinching...Read More »

Velocity Dyad 650C?

I'm investigating part selections to build up an old steel MTB frame for its third incarnation as a commuter bike. From my research it appears that 650C wheels are a good choice for MTB bikes and that the Velocity Dyad is a great rim. However I'm a little unsure if one can get a Dyad in 650C. The ... Read More »
