the Sun is for a tandem, the Alex is for a Jeep?
On my precision scale, the Alex DM 18 rims that I have (with optional SSE = Stainless Steel Eyelets) ranged from 648 to 653 grams over 4 samples. I like the durability and price + availability: which to me equates to value. I don't like the industrial look and finish of the samples I received, especially how offset they were at the rim joints.landotter said:On Mar 30, 2:44 am, datakoll <[email protected]> wrote:

My meat scale scale in converted ounces says the DM18 is 650g. Uff Da!
Race teams provide feedback to sponsors and ask for things to change in the directions they feel are valuable. Relevance to a Trekker isn't something I can easily evaluate, but I think the exposure in both directions does some good.datakoll said:A RARE OPPORTUNITY two honest wheel builders in the same place at...
Alex 18 are harder, less ductile than Sun Rhyno/CR
do yawl see a difference in trueing a hole bent rim-for the group 2
on the race teams (to which the above question should be directed but
not answered) the upper limits of bang-bend are in racing. A NO BEND
rim is better than a lighter sometimes bend rim. AND OFF COURSE the
eyelet question is irrelevant to a racer. In fact racers using Alex
rim is irrelevant to the Trekker, is it snot?
BTW- what are messengers using? whatever they can steel ?
