- 29er rims…
Kris Holm if you want a monster sized downhill rim. It is 10mm wider than all the rest, which makes a real difference when running low pressures in wide tyres. Narrow rims + wide tyres really sucks if you don’t want to run 40 PSI in them.
Although you pay for it in weight – 800g a rim.

BTW I built up some Sun Ringle Equalizer27s the other day. Only 19mm bead width but they built up really well, straight and easy to true, and the quality isnt too bad at all – just one or two tiny marks where you can see where the rims were hung for annodizing. Got mine for £35 each from CRC.
Cant bring myself to spend THAT much on those Gordos. Mad price!Posted 9 years agoSinglespeedpunkMember
DT Swiss all the way for me. No other rims is as well made or builds up as well. Having built wheels professionally for 10 years I have seen a pretty good cross section of rims!
TK7.1’s are ok but might be a little narrow if you like bumping in to stuff…hard. I have run WTB WeirWolf 2.55’s on them with no issues but I am pretty light.
The D470 29er rim is really good price, width and weight. I have some on my rigid bike and have not had to touch them once despite some rocky descents / low tyre pressure. Only down side is the tacky (but easily removable) stickers on them!
