THE NEW B-43 COMING May OF '09 :We've heard what people were asking for and it’s exactly this. We started developing this rim about 2 months ago, doing some research, talking to you and hearing what you had to say. The next step was convincing our main man Tom Black, el presidente and rim roller for Velocity Australia to take up the challenge. He stepped to the plate and got right on it. He had to re-outfit our manufacturing facility with new rollers, and drills, all while in the process of moving into their brand new facility. Its going to be a triple walled rim to make it bomb proof, nuke proof, which is why we named it the B43, after a Nuclear Warhead. and the city it is made in...........And so there you have it.

  4. It won't be the lightest rim we've made... It will probably come in around 750g, anodizing it will probably drop the weight about 10g. These numbers are from the factory and from the rim you see in the pictures (which is un-drilled and un-joined). The joiner will add a little weight, however that should be offset once the rim is drilled.

  6. We've had about 1000 people ask this same question. We will get some people out throwing down on these, like Tom LaMarche, Sam killer Miller, Street Dog AKA JBolt, and some others. However I would like to see some video, and would love to post some videos of people throwing down. Hit me up.

    Thanks

  7. I heard you guys are only going to run 48 holes on this? Any truth to that? And will you be running pre-orders? If so, when?

  8. 24-48 hole in selected colors including three new anodized colors (olive mist, midnight blue, bronze!). 32 hole in the full range of colors. Pre-orders = yes. There will be very limited quantities available in about 4 weeks.
