Also depends on your weight Velouria.

 

Although the 355's are approx 70g per wheel lighter than the DT 4.1's, I believe that they are not as strong as the DT's.

 

If you bought a set, would you import them yourself or are they available locally ?

ZTR Olympic Disc 32H Black 347g is the lightest of the range, the Flow and Arch is way heavier, got for the Olympics.

 

Or be cool like me and get real rims, DT Swiss!Thumbs%20Up

Go for the ZTR 355's. They're a tiny bit heavier than the Olympics but are miles stronger. Stan has been testing other companies rims and he reckons the ZTR 355's are stronger and stiffer than an offering froma certain swiss company.

 

 

-- Oh, they don't work that great with v-brakes.

Titus' date=' why do you say they don't work that great for V's ? [/quote']

 

 

They don't have as well a machined surface as the other rim makers, well that was last year, perhaps Uncle Stan has sorted that issue out. I just remember that the guys used to have issues running them with V's, you can never underestimate Uncle Stan.

In the not to distant future I'm going to buy myself a new set of hubs & rims and at the moment it's basically is a toss up between DT Swiss 4.1's, ZTR 355's for the rims and CK or DT 240's for the hubs.

 

Although I wouldn't mind laying my hands on a set of custom built Industry 9's

They currently have a whole bunch in stock!

 

Thug, my personal favourite build is ZTR 355's on DT 240 centreloc's with Sapim CX Ray spokes.
