Hey guys. My Alpha 340 rear rim started developing cracks around the spoke holes due to probably over-tension of the spokes. Anyone know where the best (read cheapest) place in the US to order a new 28h rim is? Thanks in advance, Greg

Greg, I don't think you're going to find the rim much under the MSRP of $120. Since you're product is failing, I'd recommend purchasing from a known and reputable vendor that's going to provide warranty service should you need it. In the US stans sells direct, and I know Fairwheel has sold these rims.

As a follow up, if the rim is cracking, you're unable to warranty it, and you're price sensitive, perhaps you should replace the 340 with something more robust...

Locking this one. @ OP - we would rather not open "best price" threads.

Thanks.
