Selling a set of nice 650b+ wheels including nearly-new tyres.

This is a pair of WTB KOM Light i40 rims, fitted to DT240S hubs with Sapim spokes.

These are non-boost hubs. The rear is 12×142, the front is 20mm maxle, though of course they’re fully adaptable. I do have a Wolftooth boostinator rear adaptor though so I can add that and redish the rear to boost spacing if you prefer, for an extra £20. As pictured they have a nearly-new SRAM XD freehub on, but I can switch that for a standard Shimano 9/10/11 speed freehub if you prefer, for £20 less

The tyres are Michelin Wild AM and Force AM 2.8s, both the gumx3d, and set up tubeless. I also have a Wild Enduro 2.8 as pictured. Basically this makes a sensible everyday tyre set with the two AM models, and the Wild Enduro is a super grippy winter tyre that works great with the Force AM on the rear. All 3 tyres are very lightly used.

I built these just to experiment with plus, and it turns out, I still prefer 29er, so they’re spare. They’ve only done a couple of hundred miles max (the hubs are older but have good bearings etc, the rims tyres and spokes were all brand new)

Downsides- there is a dent in the rear, from when I was experimenting with pressures. Check the closeup for more detail. It doesn’t affect the function at all, seals perfectly tubeless, no cracks or stress marks etc.

Price is for the wheels and all 3 tyres, with the XD freehub, but there’s a bit of wriggle room depending on exactly what spec you want.
