I've got about 2 months (2x/week) on Stan's rim for front only. Also one very technical XC race. On my Maverick frame / fork setup. Works very well, and noticeably lighter than my other front which is a Mavic X3.1. I'm debating buying one for a new rear wheel, to complete a race wheel setup. What other light rims should I consider (besides Mavic 317 or whatever the new # is)? FYI I use Stan's setup with regular tires and Stan's rimstrips.TomFL said:Anyone out there have a chance to get some good miles on these rims? Any input would be appreciated on comparing either of the two.
I was under the impression that AC actually didn't do any manufacturing. Chin Haur made their first ISIS BB.Max said:aren't stan's rims manufactured by Am Classic?
You're correct, Stan's rims are not manufactured by American Classic. AC does have everything made overseas.Ole said:I was under the impression that AC actually didn't do any manufacturing. Chin Haur made their first ISIS BB.
Rim extrusion requires very expensive machinery, and there aren' that many companies actually making them. Anybody know who besides Weinmann makes rims in the US these days?
