I recently built a wheelset with velocity quill rims.
Paired with vittoria Corsa G's they have transformed my bike.

I managed to get hold of a bitex hubset at a sale and I am looking to build an extra set.

For this build I would also like to use very wide rims.

Here is a list of the wide alloy rims I could find:

Velocity Quill 622-21
http://www.velocityusa.com/product/rims/quill-622
real weight of the rim 477 instead of 465gr
Brake track is very small - the brake pad has to be aligned perfectly
about 100 EUR

Hed Belgium plus 622-20.5
https://www.hedcycling.com/belgium-rim-brake-clincher/
good reviews but expensive 150 EUR
don't know if the weight is accurate at 465 gr

JRA LARK 20 622-20
Very likely a rebranded rim. Does anybody know what the OEM rim is?

claimed weight 470 gr
Does anybody know what the OEM rim is?
price 95 EUR high shipping costs

Fratelli FX 2035 AIR 622-20

no reviews. impossible to buy
claimed weight 480 seems imposisble with the 35 mm depth

Pacenti Forza rims 622-20

claimed weight 470
about 110 EUR

Are there any other very wide alloy rims that I have not mentioned?

Boyd altamonts are 19.86 mm wide, Kinlin XR 22/26/31 and Mavic open pro UST are 19 mm wide and Aforce AL33 are 19.6 mm . I'm sure there are more, those are the ones I remember.

The Kinlin's go 24mm outside width... super easy to build a strong, round wheel w no weight penalty. Best value in rims... anywhere.
