700c version of the standard Delgado is an excellent choice for cross and touring bikes
Please Note: Rims is black.
I had my rims for 4 years and they developed cracks up the side and in the eyelets. Spokes were in spec for tension. Poor rims. Ive ridden the same on other rims with no problems. Dont buy them.
i used the 36 hole rim for touring. rode about 5500 miles with loaded panniers. the rear rim has developed several small (for now) cracks at the spoke holes. its still true, but i think it should last longer. ive had other rims last over 20,000 miles with loaded panniers.
I bought this rim and laced it to a Dura Ace hub for commuting on my cross bike. I was replacing a Mavic Crossmax that had shaken loose an internal weld plate after less than a year of use (and Mavic customer service is... well, its French). This morning I backed out of the garage in my Chevy Tahoe, forgetting the cross bike was leaning against the car. The bike fell over and the Tahoe rolled over the rim. I pulled forward, stood up the bike, and assessed the damage. Not only was the wheel still in tact, it was still true. This is one tough rim, yet plenty light and speedy too.
