If you’re looking for bike rims, walk past the pricey bike shops that seem to have popped up in the neighborhood in the last few years and head over to Valencia Cyclery. They’re offering specials for track, road and mountain bikes:
For track bike riders, check out their Velocity deep-V rims. They have formula-sealed bearing hubs and they come in a handful of colors for under $230. That’s about $120 less than the usual price.
Mountain bike riders get an even better deal: less than $200 for WTB FX28 rims with Shimano XT hubs. This is about 30 percent off the usual price.
Road bike riders can get Mavic Open Pro rims with Shimano Utlegra 6600 hubs for $300.
They’ll fix up your bike for you or help you figure out what you need to do it yourself.
