Urban1cycle got our hand’s on a set of Velocity B43’s, and totally fell in love with them. With the deep 43mm triple walled rim it make’s the Deep V look like child’s play. To some the B-43’s are too deep, to others its perfection.. The big question that was up in the air was how the wheel would perform with brakes. On my Se Lager I use a front brake on my single speed setup.. thus making people question the performance of the wheel with the brake.
After dropping the wheels off @ 66Fixed in St.pete, Fl. Micheal tuned up the brakes, making sure the toe in is perfect on the wheel is very important to make the braking the best it can be. Over time yes the color will probably wear down, but if your interested in a deep high quality wheel, the B43 is the way to go..
Here are some specs of the Velocity B43:
The B43 AKA the Brisbane43, at 43mm deep, triple walled, and in drillings up to a 48h the B43 is the ultimate rim for tricking, and bike polo. If you’re looking for stiffness, rigidness, pure strength, and the bling that goes with it, roll these on your whip.
