Came here looking for suggestions for my '89 build - but finding good rims in good condition is not an easy task.
I have been leaning towards Velocity Cliffhangers - laced to my Suntour XC Pro hubs (it's all XC Pro) - I think I'm with you on this...done hunting for old rims that won't perform...

Scott, thank you so so much for the deep dive! I really appreciate you taking the time to share this insider information about the manufacturing details of the bikes during that era, these are details that very few people would ever know about. Thanks for sharing this with all of us. Cheers!
Hey, that would be cool - i just am curious about the specs for the bike and the geo/measurements. Though I haven't found a 1991 catalogue to compare it to, it would be a good resource. Thanks for your help!
I have a 1991 Wicked that I love - looking to acquire another one, it's a 1989. I've looked for catalogues to do the research on my own but am not finding any '89 or '91 catalogues so nothing to reference. Does anyone know if there are differences in geometry or chainstay/seattube length...
I've got a wicked that I love but have seen some pics here and elsewhere of the Santana Moda with the Columbus MAX tubing and I'm dying to find one to buy and ride the heck outta of. I ride a 21" 1991 Wicked and the fit is perfect, looking for a similar size.
I know this is a long...
