    the word seems to be no word at all.
    nothing on the dmr website either.
    chainreactioncycles has a bit of info: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=24160
    from the second pic the joint doesn't look welded.
    what size are you looking at? what kind of brake would you run?
    for a rim like that i'd get a sun mtx for 24" or a mavic 721 for 26".

    one world...

    mtx is disc only (and overly wide IMO), and mavics offerings are 26" only.
    That DMR rim looks like it has a brake strip and will probably be made available in 24".



    edit: just looked at the chainreaction link... Those rims look WAY too big for street/dj IMO. more of a direct competition for PIMP I guess, for DH/FR I would assume
