I have a pair 24/28 aerolite tune hubs. I am 84kg. No pb with them, good solid rim. I assume you are talking about the tubular version.

corima pads are very good when it's not raining hard. All bets are off when it is.

Hi,

Can someone point out where we can get these rims (along with any other CORIMA rims) online, and can ship worldwide?

I live in a country where custom wheelset is not popular, so getting wheels handbuilt is bit of a pain here. I know RAR Wheels carry them but not sure if they are willing to sell only rims. And Justin from LuxeWheelworks as well.

I've been toying with the idea to have the 47mm (i believe it is called VIVA?) laced to White Industries..

Thanks!

Can't you just order from the Corima website? That's what I did...

When did you order? Last time I email them, (IIRC it's mid of 2012) they advised to contact my local retailer, which isnt that helpful at all. My LBS can order, but have to wait until their next shipment, which at that time was still unknown. They wont do single order.

If you dont mind, how much did it cost you for the rims?

Sorry, I wasn't talking about the Winium's per se; I ordered a set of Aero+ through their website.

I just checked and you can still shop on their website as you would do with any other, with the difference being you are requesting a 'quote' rather than being able to checkout directly. Why not go through that process first and see what they come up with?

Hi,

No, you can't. It all depends on their distribution policy.
It used to be website oriented and more or less global but has now returned to a more traditional distribution scheme depending on local services.

Good wheels but Corima has moved on big time since.

Ciao, ;)

Oh well that sucks big time. Especially here in Australia where going through official channels now (I just checked), just getting the front wheel is more expensive than what I paid for the whole set when I ordered from Corima directly.
