Building up a SP dynamo hub for use on my 29er and cross bike and struggling to decide on a rim. Want something stiffer than the Stans 355 currently using as hub is narrower and 355 is a bit bendy on the 29er anyway. Dont want anything too wide as the cross bike get 30c tyres, maybe even 28c slick.
Thinking maybe an older stans Arch might do the job if i can find one, not sure the ArchEX would suit the dual duty? On-one have Pacenti rims cheap but they dont seem tough enough for cross tyres in rough ground.
Running crest on my CX front wheel since Jan, holding up OK but they are too wide, pretty much no shoulder tread with 35c tyres. Think a 19mm ish rim is more what I’m after, probably going to try a 340 on a spare hub I have, probably no good for you if you plan on using it on an MTB. Shimano 29er wheels may be worth a look.
