Rim Reccommendation

Posted By: Tim Hall
Date: 15 June 2008

A bit of fettling has unearthed cracks originating from the spoke nipples on the rear wheel of our Pino. It's a 26 inch Mavic D521, about 7 years old. Not sure of the mileage, but fairly substantial. I suspect that's why we get accompanied by creaking noises Not my knees after all.

Anyway they don't seem to make them anymore. The rim that is.

The tandem has Magura rim brakes, and is used mostly for day rides, road and obligatory bridleway.

What's the current 26 inch rim of choice for heavy(ish) tandem riding? Sun Rhyno perhaps? Tyre is 40-559 and we can't really go any wider.
