So we’ve been going through the attic lately and it’s been like Christmas morning, finding all kinds of special toys that have been hiding up there for years. Lately, it’s been all about rims. Custom built wheels used to be the norm, but as with most things today, the product straight out of the factory is usually cheaper and of a pretty goody standard, so custom items are usually relegated to those who specifically want something different, or who are after a slightly better level of quality.
These rims are from the era when good wheels were hand built, at your local shop, by someone who knows their trade. Many are from between the early 80’s and mid 90’s. Almost all are brand new and many are still in their original wrappers. Campagnolo, Ambrosio, Mavic. Tubulars and clinchers. 28, 32, and 36 hole. Silver, black, red, blue, even purple. We have newer ones too, of course (really nice Velocity rims that make good strong wheels for heavier riders). If you are after something custom, give us a call or come in to see our collection.
