CX wheels – kinesis or hope?
a mate runs the Kinesis ones and they’ve been okay. He doesn’t run tubeless though so can’t comment on that.
If you go Hope then don’t run Crest 29er rims – way too tight for tubeless CX tyres IME.
I run Hope hubs on Archetype rims, and tubeless CX tyres, but that’s more £ than the two wheelsets you mention.Posted 4 years agonotmyrealnameSubscriber
The Moonglu wheels seem pretty good.
They’ll run tubeless CX tyres without any issues as well. I’ve just had a set arrive and they look very well built but I’ve not had a chance to use them yet.Posted 4 years agoRoter SternMember
It isn’t the Hope wheels particularly that have problems with tubeless it’s the Stans rims and the system itself. I am talking about racing mind not general riding about where the whole point is to lower the tire pressures to get maximum grip in the corners. In both races that I have used tubeless the rear tire has burped air from the rear rim on tight corners. The first time the tire exploded off the rim with a load bang the second I just lost a load of air in the tire but I was able to finish but not sprint for the win!! 😉Posted 4 years agoDomMasonSubscriber
Doesn’t the Eastway disc road bike have 130 spacing? I seem to remember they have to supply their own wheels to go with it…could be wrong.Posted 4 years ago
Might be worth seeing if they would fit the bill? Not sure if they are tubeless though.
Hahah…more Q’s than answers there I fear!swanny853Member
Running hopes on crests, tubeless has been fine down to a bit under 30psi with schwalbes. Plumps the tyres up nicely. I suspect I wouldn’t want to try some of the brands that have tighter tyre beads like geax/vittoria though, but then that was an issue for mtb anyway.Posted 4 years ago
