<Who can tell me a little about Akront rims? I have a pair of Akront tubular rims laced to Zeus hubs but I've never seen any Akronts before.

Any info appreciated.> As Jamie and Otis already pointed out, Akronts were just the thing to upgrade a Bonneville, Commando or Lightning. Today, they are still being used on some BMW motorcycles, particularly the GS models where a lightweight and strong laced rim is required. I'm not familiar with their bicycle rims.
