H Plus Son "The Hydra"

(closed)
Does anyone have these rims built up? They seem to be comfortable to ride on since they're 25cm wide.

Looks like archetypes got fatter for wider tires.

If you want to know, archetype rims feels great. I'm sure those rims well be just as good

In a nutshell, Archetype is to the HED Belgium as The Hydra is to the HED Begium +.

Why does that bum you out? You have a disc mtb and a brakeless fixed gear.

It makes a lot of sense and I hope the trend continues for really wide rims like these.

I'm lacing up a set to 28h spike track hubs. You can only get them straight from h plus son in the states as of right now. No distributors have them yet...

By the time you have to replace them. I'm sure you'd have $$ saved up.
