Call me Old Skool.............I still ride sew-ups and carry a spare in a figure 8 over my back and shoulders.bent steel said:It's also a lot easier for must of us to carry a $4 tube than a $100 tire every time we go ride.

I just think it looks cool, then, I'm a freak!
^ Read Zipp 101RS2 Rider said:Velocity just came out with a rim that is 24mm instead of the normal 19-20mm for clinchers. The thought behind this is by spreading the tire out in a wider rim it will ride more like a sew-up instead of a clincher. My next wheel build will probably be these rims. People I've talked to indicated the ride is superior over a 19mm clincher. Also, my LBS indicated mfg's may take a look at this wider rim concept and may consider it in the future.
