Definately looks like I'm not going UST on these rims - bugger.
DT 5.1D Rims
aye - i'm going back to Mavic 819's from now i reckon. shame mavic don't make a 821
Ride em for a short while while on other rims, they soon slacken off. Don't worry about it, it's just the newness wearing off. Makes for a good tight seal.
So is there an alternative rim of choice? I'm about to buy and build up a new bike in the next week or so. I wanted to go tubless this time and intially thought Mavic 819s but as I was planning on using 2.35 tyres, that's apparently right on the limit for them. The 5.1s seemed to be a possible tubless. Ideally a tubless specific rim would be good but can't think of one.
i m running a conti mountain king 2.4 on back and its a nightmare to get on or off, running a Panaracer Fire Protection on front and that slips on and off a dream
