Does anyone know of any shop that will have this rim in stock?

A Flow EX on the back of my bike park bike turned out to be a very bad idea.

Wow. That EX lasted all of what, two weeks? :lol:

To answer the question, no I don't know any place with that rim in stock

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

Can't be 100% sure but I think I saw some hanging at the Cove on the weekend.

Well done! They had one there.

Punky, it's still useable, just not by someone like me. It looks like I need an 823 level of rim to support my ass. These 570's look beefy though, hope they'll cut the mustard.

Stop riding like a hack! :-P ;-)

The FR570 should be bomb proof. I am running the EX471 on my Nomad and on my HT before that. Those took an absolute beating and have yet to be trued.

They will be my next DH set when I succumb to marketing hype.

They definitely look and feel a step above the Flow's.

I've gone and put the 25mm Stan's tape and valve stem on it (as opposed to the 29mm DTSwiss recommended tape). If you see me swearing a lot this Friday, you'll know why…

I've noticed a few DH bikes with the 471s. If I tween'd I'd likely tween them

Norco is specing them on several Aurum builds. They are not cheese like the EX500 were and are.
