Looking for a Rather Specific Rim

Hi All,Looking for a rim recommendation, it's a doozy.I need a 26", 48 spoke hole clincher, the wider (35mm+) and beefier the better.  Preferably without eyelets, single wall would be fine.  Aluminum or steel.  Weight is irrelevant.An un-drilled rim (no spoke holes) would work as well.Thanks!See More

It's been hip as long as you've been involved.  I've been checking out  the cycling scene in Budapest and Zapreb this week.

I'm so glad somebody appreciates these things! Also, I can't understand why Blockbuster would have let me rent this movie even once:

Almost stayed, but then I thought about the bills that had to be paid. Had a great time - hope see you on future rides or at the bars (whichever comes first).
