Now that this topic is more on-topic with it being placed in the context of a CR type project...

...just thought I'd give you folks a chance to influence my business plans - just as I'm always trying to influence Mr. Repros business plans! =8-p

Normally I import KinLin 27 x 1 1/4 alloy rims in "milled finish silver" and "anondized black - no sidewall treatment". These are very traditional in profile - very much in the tradition of Araya, Weimann, Rigida, etc., with a box section that has a centerline raised bump.

I'm debating whether to request 20-40 in my next order from KinLin in "polished

silver" minus the label.

(They would be 36H - not much I can do about that...sorry.)

What say you folks?
