Rim Update!

No Tubes just received their final batch of ZTR 355 rims. Their 650B Flow should arrive within 3 months.

Velocity will be releasing a lighter version of the awesome Blunt. The new rim will be properly named the Blunt SL; no word yet if they will discontinue the original Blunt.

For our European riders, you'll be happy to find out about XXCycles offering of the Ambrosio KEBA in 650B. 20mm deep with a 18.5mm inside rim width with eyelets.

The Keba rim would be great - if XXCycle would state the number of spoke holes it has!

Can you run the Ambrosio with rim brakes? Kinda looks like it.

As an avid European 650b hunter, I checked the XXCycle link. I think better be careful about that rim. Although the website states "650b", you can read "ERTRO 559" in the pic of the rim. And I have checkes Ambrosio website, and did not find any 650b KEBA rim:

So I am afraid this might be just a typo

In many cases retailers will use the same picture for many diameter rims. Velocity does this too. I'm pretty confident this is a true 650B rim. I can't find a contact email for XXCycle. DOH.

If you look at the French version of the XXCycle cite, it lists the items as "Jante Ambrosio KEBA 650B Argent 36 trous,"or "Silver Ambrosio KEBA rim 36 holes." You can email XXCycle going to the red phone icon at the top left of the screen. I haven't yet ordered these rims, but I've had only good experiences with XXCycle.
