Velocity makes a good rim for a fair price. I’ve ridden the Deep-V’s on many bikes. I like the Fusion, too. I also have a set of B43’s that suit a more aesthetic purpose. For touring I wanted a wider rim good for 700×32 tires. Velocity Dyad is a great choice for loaded touring rim.
Not much of a specific review on the rim because there are many things involved in the wheel. Spoke count (48), tires, air pressure, weight, road surface, speed, it’s almost endless. I do know that Velocity USA has very good customer service. That’s enough right there.
I have already put over 4000 miles on the rear and it doesn’t show any reasons to not be happy so far.
Now I have a set and both were handbuilt in a 4 cross with DT Swiss Champion spokes.
Cost: if I remember correct, about $45 ea.
