Gents,

I'm looking at getting a set of these rims for racing. Very intrigued by the possibility of running tubulars.

But, first, I'd like to confirm the width of these rims. I've seen two widths listed - 24.6mm and 26.5mm. Which is correct?

I've measured one here and it is 24mm.

Have you considered the Velocity Major Tom too?

Are there many of these around? Or does the picture have a typo? I certainly remember seeing both sets of rim dimensions :noidea:

Major Toms are too narrow. 23mm for a 50mm tire? No thanks. The wider the better.
