what is the diff between a airfoil and a street rim??? im at a loss.
There used to be two 36" rims
The steel rim on low end 36’s like mine (works ok for street riding IMHO). And a better quality double walled alum rim called the airfoil. This story is only relevant to 36" rims.
Times have changed, mostly for the better. It is unknown if the airfoil shall return(out of stock everywhere), and new stuff is appearing. It would be prudent to eat popcorn this week and wait for the new Coker 36, which shall be revealed in a few days.
The new 36 alum rims are 48 spoke, so I hope for a 36 spoke alum rim to show up again someday.
