Hi guys!

Basically, I have this little rascal, which is a blast! I use it everyday to get to work and back.

But, the quality of the components is somehow lacking, I already broke the frame once, and the overall design could be improved.

So, my plan is to build a new one, 4130 only, no aluminium, use hubs with spokes, Profile 145mm cranks, mid BB, smaller sprocket and 9t driver, etc.

More or less, I have that covered.
What I am truly lacking is a rim strong enough to handle an adult and the abuse.

So, do you guys know any rims that fit this description?
Or someone who could make something like this?

Well, that type of bike isn't designed to handle any abuse. It's for light commuting.

You might find some steel rims out there but they won't be indestructible
