Hello

i want to buy a 2nd pair of wheels and as thinking in this configuration:

- Corima Rim 32mm - 2012 model - the VIVA
- Alchemy Hubs 24 (radial)/28 (DS 3x + NDS Radia) or Chris King R45 (still don't know)
- Spokes Dtswiss aerolite - since RAR wheels told me that - this spoke as the best J-bent strengh.
- Tires will be Continental competition 22mm

I would like to use sapim CX-super, but i don't know if i can get internal nipples in 1,8mm

i have a great tubular wheels ENVE 1.45 + Pillar 1422 or 1420 + Carbon-ti Hubs 20/24 - Vittoria Corsa CX 23mm, but i want something with more strength, and cheaper for my 2nd pair of wheels


any one use Corima rims how is the strengh on them???, i would like some ́facebook
thoughts on this wheels and where i can improve, my weight is 85kg.

Best regards

I have Corima aero + for 1,5 year now and I find them very stiff and durable for my 82kg.

Acording with corima the new rim will be 290g - 32mm.

the foam construction allow the repair of this type of rims.

so my new wheels should be 1120g with DTswiss areolite / Sapim CX-RAY or 1067g with CX-Super, but i don't know if the are internal nipples for this spokes that are 1,8mm.

there is also this possibility:

new RAR RIMS - the EVEN 38mm or 50mm - http://www.roues-rar.fr/en/wheels/road/range/even" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Rims will be 400€ here in europe.

335g - 38mm

375g - 50mm

on this month french magazine L'Acheteur Cycliste, they say that they are made by ENVE/EDGE.

don't know that for sure!!!!
