    Can anyone tell me wich company makes 24" rims with 48 holes that are V-brake compatible?
    Preferrably wider than 30mm.. (some fat tires tend to pop out of "narrower" rims)..

    So far i've come up with:

    - Halo Combat (36mm)
    - FUNN's (?)
    - Sun BFR (29.xmm)
    - Sun RhynoLite (29.xmm)
    - Brave Bigfoot (38mm?)

    Thanks,
    Lennart

    I've got 26" BFR's on my bike and I haven't had any issues with Maxxis Holy Rollers. I keep the tire pressure at max. Maybe that helps to keep them from rolling. I'm not sure if a 24" rim would make a difference in that respect.

    I know that Atomlab makes a 48 hole Trailpimp for 20" bikes. I wonder if they could do the same for 24". That is the only other one that I could think of as a "maybe." You would probably have to contact them.

    I did. You need the Combat (not SAS!) Multi version though..
    The sidewalls of these have been "grinded?' so to say, so your pads will touch the actual aluminum, not the paint.

    Butthead: Yeah, Trailpimps would be awesome if they'd come in 48hole drilling!
    Or Sun should make the BFR's just a bit wider though..
    Even my 20" HulaHoops are like 34mm
    I think more companies should make 24" rims with 48 holes..
