alternative to open pro rims for 700c disc road wheels?
[darkside]Posted 5 years ago
want to get a second set of disc wheels built for my dropped bar hybrid (kinesis pro6) so can run 22mm road tyres for the odd 100% road day
obvious choice is open pro rims but the obvious choice for rim brakes that is – any disc specific 700c rims i should be looking at? remembering that most 29niner rims aren’t supposed to be run with 22mm tyres [/darkside]
thanks some useful ideas here
from what i can see the stans iron cross are tubeless only and the velocity A23 ok for 22mm but better with 25mm – didn’t realise JRA did disc cyclocross wheels
will probably go for the halo aerotracks as thought only available as a wheelset and i’ve already got some hubsPosted 5 years agoStonerSubscriber

And I got a decent quote from 18bikes for the A23s too.Posted 5 years agoMrSmithMember
Why do you want to run 22c tyres?
Most rim manufacturers are producing wider rims for better grip/rolling resistance/tyre profile with 23-25c tyres. Thinner does not mean faster it just means less comfort and grip
If you are running disks the H plus-son Archetype would be my choicePosted 5 years ago

Hijack to those that recommended Aerotracks; are they actually OK with narrow tyres? I’ve not tried less than 30mm CX tyres on mine but was thinking about using them later this year with my proper road tyres (24mm IRRC).
They’re great rims – totally robust and lightweight – if you can get over the lack of eyelets.Posted 5 years ago
some big votes for A23 and for Aerotracks thanks so will probably come down to availability and deciding if the extra for the A23’s worth it for what will be only odd use
MrSmith thanks for link – 22mm came from memory of what i thought had on last “proper” road bike if 23mm is the norm then i’ll go there, i was a bit surprised by the blurb on the Archetype site saying wide rims are good – whichever i go for i’m sure i wont get dropped! 8)Posted 5 years ago
