Strengths:    Strong! Retail cost is reasonable. Nice product construction and performance.

Weaknesses:    Not as strong as Deep-V's at a slightly higher cost, but a lot lighter.

Bottom Line:   
I have been using these rims (32 hole) laced 3x to some surly hubs with DT 14/15 spokes and I am very impressed with their strength. While carrying a bag and panniers full of textbooks, I have run straight trough some mean potholes, bumps and even a few tree roots with zero rim damage. No truing so far at about 500 miles, and the wheels are less than a sixteenth of an inch out of true (more than likely, this is just relieved stress from the initial build). Of course, I am a lightweight and, along with the books I always carry, I tip the scales at around 160lbs.

Favorite Ride:   Long and vicious.

Similar Products Used:   Mavic Open Pro

Bike Setup:   Old steel bike (singlespeed road bike) set up with a rear rack for panniers. 28c tires.

Velocity Fusion 700C MSW HALO 32 hole source?

Is there a source for these apart from the Velocity USA website at full MSRP? I can find the Deep-V HALO on-line for under $100 but Google doesn't reveal a HALO Fusion source.Read More »

hutchinson fusion 3 tubeless 700x25 measured width

I got a pair of the Hutchinson Fusion 3 700x25s from Velo Mine. I mounted them on my American Classic 2218 rims. The rims are 17.8mm inner width/22.2mm outer width. The tires measured 26.00mm width after about 2 hours inflated to 90psi. I also measured my old/used Hutchinsons on the A/Cs. Fusion ... Read More »

Hutchinson Fusion Tubeless 700x25 availability?

Anyone know when these will become available? Since the Intensive 25c tires are actually narrower than the Fusion 23's I am hoping the Fusion 25's will be more true to size. I love my Secteurs but they have very little clearance in my rear triangle. TIA.Read More »
