    B"H Which rim is stronger and more reliable for 20" wheel for tadpole trike: Velocity, Triple V, 36
    hole or Sun Rims, Rhino Lite, 36 holes? Thank you, Victor

  2. If weight is not an issue for you then you should seek high profile rims sich as Velocity Deep V,
    Aero or Aeroheat At. The Triple V. They weigh a tad mor ethough... On the other hand rim does not
    make the wheel - also the hub, spokes and quality of lacing is important. Poorly laced wheel on
    quality components will be weaker then masterfully laced wheel on wal-mart stuff.

    BTW if you search for inexpensive but stron rim then try to get Vuelta Airline 20".

    Of the two rims you specified I would expect Sun Rihno to be stronger btw.
