Bill,

While it is true that I have posted various vintage Weinmann catalogs to Velo-Pages for public perusal, there are yet others within my library collection which have not yet been digitized. The very latest one which I have dates from the year 2000 and lists the following distributor information for domestic contact:

Weinmann / Rigida

Member of the RIGIDA Group

3519 North Union Drive

Olney, IL 62450-5141

618-395-4571

800-447-4588

618-395-8044 (fax)

For whatever it may be worth, the model CR 19 that you seek is not listed among their various double wall rim offerings from a decade ago, inasmuch as contemporary counterparts from that period were limited to the ZAC 2000, XC420, ZAC 19, ZAC 19 R, Phoenix, DP X, Taurus, NOVA R, X-PLORER R, and VELA models.

Best of luck in your pursuit....

While Robert Shackelford's response was valid (use the search engines..), Marcus Coles' response was precisely the most helpful in that most of us know about the use of search engines, but not many know about the connection between Weinman and Rigida. This information will help me in my quest for the correct rims for the several sets of older Campy hubs that are waiting to be built up.
