    Have just recieved my first Fatbike and was wanting to know which way to go ?
    I was originally hoping to buy some Nextie 80mm rims direct,and run tubeless but obviously they are now under exclusivity and the price now reflects this.
    I then thought about BR710 rims but although they are light they seem nigh on impossible to setup sans tube.
    So what say you?

    Thread resurrection, but I was debating the same carbon Vs alu question and googled it.

    Apparently the solution to tubeless is pallet wrap (like clingfilm, but a little tougher). 5 layers is enough and weighs 16g apparently!

    I had a result and got Nextie’s but the 710’s are supposed to be a doddle to get tubeless, I had based my fears on a set of BR2250’s which had failed to remain inflated after several attempt’s over several week’s.
