 Two-piece or Straight-sided Rims

 Bibendum Rims

 Beaded-edge Rims
These rims rely on reinforced beads to hold the tyre in place by seating under the hooked edges of the rim.  The measurement relating to the tyre size is the width across the inside of the rim, this is measured in mm in Europe and inches in America.

 Two-piece or Straight-sided Rims
This early rim type uses a locking ring which acts as the second rim edge to hold the tyre in place.  This design means that a rim well is not necessary to accomodate fitting of tyres. Again, the rim width measurement is taken inside the rim.

 Bibendum Rims
This rim type was developed in France by Michelin and is a precursor to the well-based rim.  They have a well running half the circumference of the rim which allows the application of a tyre.
