Getting my new front rim soon...

I like the skylark and the deviant, but whats the big difference?
I've seen both in person, but i don't really know the huge difference...

I don't want to be a weight whore or a trend whore.

I just really really like both rims, and it's for a front rim, and i never land hard on my front rim anywhoo.

So anybody give me some insight about them?

I'm getting chrome by the way.

As far as I can tell there isn't a difference other than the dimensions. Skylarks would be my choice if they were my only choices. But honestly I wouldn't get either one because they're pinned joins instead of welded.

i've had pinned joined front rims for almost 3 years, always stock rims like the shittest alienation black rim, and sun ringle VILLA rims, i just want a double walled lightweight, low profile aero rim.

Skylark and Deviant i like the most and cheap..

So you would get the skylark? Only thing is everyone has one and they only come in polished where i can get them at, and costs too much to import it, deviant comes in chrome for $60 AUD + shipping

yeah, i think im drifting in that direction man...

But where to get a chrome one :/?

I can only get them from CRC, Strictlybmx in aus won't sell them cause they don't have them as a distributor, and everywhere else is charging like $90 for the skylark and $70 for deviant, and i can get deviant and skylark for $60 from CRC, really want to know which ones better cause they are the same price...

but im getting the skylark now, in chrome...
But i got to find somewhere that sells them, or do you guys think the polished looks fairly chrome?

Well not really polished if done well can look pretty damn shiny but it wont be the same as chrome.

I have both on my bike I think.....they're pretty slick and haven't bent yet. I'm not a huge fan but if they last, that's fine by me.
