Just because it annoys me and needs to be clarified.

Those rims are not Deep Vs, Deep V is a specific model of rim made by Velocity, those are DP 18s which are made by Weinemann. 

They are a similar style of rim but not the same.

I don't know anyone who thinks that way.  It's false advertising.  Using your logic, ANY deep-walled rim would qualify to be called a Deep V, when that is obviously not the case.

State EXACTLY what you're selling or have someone who knows what they're talking about do it for you.  It's not a difficult concept.

That reminds me...I need to stop and get some facial tissues on the way home.

No, you're absolutely correct the name has become a catch all name for deep section rims.  I never thought you meant to mislead anyone it's just something that makes me nuts to see.  Mostly because the proliferation of the name deep v for any deep section rim leads to so many annoying conversations in the bike shop when people find out how much a real Deep V costs compared to a Cheap V.

You're correct, but quite honestly it's the same as "kleenex". No one calls facial tissues facial tissues, everyone calls them kleenex regardless of brand.
