My current rims are just about done in and was trying to work out what I might use as a replacement rim. I would use them for everyday riding on my training bike.

My slight concern is that the hubs are 16/20 and need something which will minimise wheel flex. Would consider shallow section (38?) carbon clincher or aluminium. Failing any ideas, I may just rebuild with RS80 rims which I believe are identical to the Dura Ace but bizarrely significantly cheaper.

I have a broken C24 rim, so I would be interested in sourcing a new for the hub.
Are you sure the RS80 replacement rims are cheaper?

I've worn the dimples away on one set of 7850 C24's and am now running my second set. I would be interest in knowing where to buy replacement rims - or who can do this rebuild. These DA wheels are really good wheels and worth the rebuild unless it cost nearly as much as a new set.

You could try contacting your local distributor based on the parts list listed in these documents:

http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/techd ... 698499.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


I'm assuming you're talking about the C24-CL and not the 'TL' tubeless version ???

These guys seem to have it but are charging and arm and leg for them though :unbelievable: :

I am based in the UK and last time I looked I don't think there was much difference buying an rs80 wheelset (planet x currently £320) to strip the rims off and buying separate rims. When I looked a couple if months ago the rims seemed to have a standard shimano stock code - the joke is that the rs80 rims were about 140 each and the dura ace more than (200 each from memory). I think the only difference is the decals!!!

Not many 16 hole rims around - Kinlin XR300s perhaps best option?

Will look for the Kinlins - not sure how good availability is in the UK for 16 holes. Has anyone on here any experience of 16/20 with the Kinlins.

Another option might be the carbon/aluminium farsports 38mm rims; again has anyone any thoughts on building these up in 16/20?
