You can probably just run around the rim, making it like "swiss cheese" full of holes, with a ~6mm drill bit. Just don't let the holes touch each other. Make sure to post pics!

This is probably a good idea. Prehaps holes of different sizes, like dimples of Zipps. :beerchug:
However, making cut outs could save more weight? :roll:

Thank you for your reply. Don’t you think, this is what ww discussion forum is for? It needs aggressive/new ww ideas for discussion. Beside, like any other forum, there are enthusiastic lurking for knowledge and newbies/couch potatoes pretending they are experts who need education, and you will never know if you could learn a few things new during the process.

The point is that most people are able to distinguish between aggressive and dangerous tuning. You might be the first to do this, but it's not without good reason.

Good luck, you are going to need it.

Oh, so NOW you get what we are getting at? Once you mention it and everyone says you gonna get yourself injured (or killed), you're supposed to just do it anyways, right? Drill it.

You haven't offered anything worth learning though, you asked why you shouldn't and got told why you shouldn't. If you want to educate, get on and do it and then tell us all you were right so we can all start hacking into our Bora Ultras.

And very best of luck.

I say it is apparent that most people are NOT able to distinguish between aggressive and dangerous tuning. Most people are average, brilliant are minority. To the average, brilliant reason is no good reason.

Do you even know the wall thickness of the rim where you plan on shaving? All the rims I've seen that have been shaved are done so at the spoke bed where a rim is the thickest, not anywhere on the side of the rim.

You really are acting like a dick when you try to put down anyone that disagrees with you.

I was not saying that you are one of those newbies/couch potatoes, serious.
Now, is that something new/interesting to learn?

Now, I see you have not seen many rims.

I'll ask this again. I don't look at a lot of prebuilt wheels like those. Obviously those rims are designed with enough wall thickness to allow for that. If you don't even know the wall thickness of the rims you are working on or what the wall thickness of the rims you desire to copy (both where they are shaved and where they aren't) good luck.
