EU-bikeshop anyone used them? Tubular MTB nichewhore moment
Are you talking about using MTB tubulars or cross tubs on your mtb? Proper mtb tubs are amazing but bring challenges of their own. You really need to have a rim which is designed for them – you can’t (safely) use road or CX tub rims. You need greater width and contour to match the MTB tyres. Sadly, there are not many available. There are the amazing (and amazingly costly) Edge rims, and a couple of other (cheaper but less durable) carbon ones floating around. And there are also some FRM AL ones which are nice but a bit soft and flexy (especially if you’ve ridden good carbon ones….).Posted 6 years ago
Remerex are a Czech brand and I have used their (clincher) rims in the past and they were decent – I haven’t tried their new mtb tub rims. The profiles look good in terms of tyre support, and the eyelet is nice. Not especially light though, which could mean they are a bit stronger than some of the other Al tub rims I’ve used.
Yes, Reflex rims are a bad idea….Posted 6 years ago
