Ceramic Rims.

  1. I put ceramic rims on my DF a while ago (yes I own a couple of them as well). I've put about three
    thousand miles on them with very little sign of wear. When I get around to replacing the rims on my
    Vision R-50 I will probably go with the ceramic rim on the back. I have been casually searching for
    ceramic rims in the 20" size for the front. So far no luck.

    Does anyone make such a beast?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    No, but i replaced the 20 inch front wheel on my Vision R42, and i'm going to use ceramic
    rim on it...

    No, but i replaced the 20 inch front wheel with 26 inch on my Vision R42, and i'm going to use
    ceramic rim on it.

    After some testing, i'd say the bike still handles ok.

    The mudguard has to be fitted rather close to tire to avoid pedal touching it when turning.
