Enjoy a smoother, quicker ride quality with increased tire volume. Ride fast and flashy with the Emporia GA Pro – Silver Edition.”

  1. Please list rim weights. I build my own wheels with better quality hubs. I do love my HED Belgium Plus rims on my road bike and tandem.

    1. Yikes, hopefully you don’t need to read instructions for those builds!
