A KH rim has served me well.

Nice, never had a problem with the seat base?

If so, a reinforcement plate or CF base could be an addition.

I have the Alex DX32, and its great, no flat spots, its still true, and very strong.

I am not sure how much it weighs, but most likely the KH is lighter, so if you want to save a tiny amount of weight, go for the KH.

No i was talking about the rim. =p

As for the frame, I would go with the KH, i like the look of a NImbus II better though, but a bigger seat post, like the 27mm ones, are a nice plus, but the 25.4mm works fine for me.

A swallis rerail base is probably the only thing you can do to improve it. The viscount is good but heavier and that I don't know about you but I hate rail adapters.
