And yes, there is no doubt about the external wear indicator on the new rims.
Actually, St Kilda Cycles ordered a pair of the Velocity Dyads with 36 spoke holes each, and then found out on Wednesday that my front hub (a dynamo hub) takes 32 spokes. After some discussion with them on the phone, and some dithering and further questions on my part, I decided to accept their suggestion of installing some Mavic A119 rims they had in stock, rather than waiting for another 32-spoke Velocity rim to be ordered and delivered. So yes, the pictured rims are Mavics.
And now I must forgo any further spending on my bike for the next several months. New wheels, brakes, chain, rear cluster, plus new shoe covers and new pedals I got today have meant I've spent over $1000 on my bike over the last few months. Hopefully, that will be the last for some time, now.
