Hey Martin,I got your message today, but couldnt listen to the whole thing because I was at work. If you could strip the wheel down to just the rim and strip the paint, I would help weld it up. We could discuss wraping it in fiber, I use resins and fiber cloth at work.
Give me a call this weekend and we can figure something out.
I think it is ! Wow. Would u be willing? And then add A layer of carbon fiber?Sent from my iPhone?????? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??Martin Krieg???? ?? ?? “Awake Again” Author?????? ??’79 & ’86 TransCon cyclist2010 on Eagle w/Busycle & BookComa, Paralysis, Clinical Death??Survivor.

Let me know if I can help in any way. I would suggest trying to get a rim manufacturer to do a special rim AKA Velocity as a promotion, its worth a shot.
Let me know if I can help.
