I want to buy a single Kinlin XR-200. I'm in Aus. The only sources I'm aware of are in the US.
The cost of postage from the US is more than the cost of the rim! not prohibitive but irksome.
Does anyone know of a source in Aus or the UK or China? I've checked around with no luck so far.

Timely question as I am thinking Kinlin TB-25's would make a great CX wheelset...

Try Ebay.

Ï've had really good service from good886.

He went as far as finding me parts that he didn't even list, at very reasonable prices.
His prices for the Kinlin rims are the best I've found. ($32 for an XR200)

I searched for a European dealer for a while, and eventually found The WheelRoom in the UK: http://www.wheelroom.co.uk/. They sell the Kinlin rims that are rebranded as IRD, but are otherwise the same.

At 65 pounds per rim they seem a bit more expensive :)

For a more reasonable price in Europe, look at www.cnc-bike.de .
