Halo Vapour 50 Rim (29)
Got a 29er 50 on the front of the tandem and a 35 on the rear (shame the finishes dont quite match), running ours will a 3.25 bulldozer on and it took a bit of extra sealant to seal the 50 first time around as it seemed to leak a little through the joint but absolutely fine since then, does the job its supposed to fine as it does take a fair amount of battering too. 35 has been great too, seems very strong as well. I’d use them again if I was building a plus bike for myself.Posted 7 months agobikesian65Member
I have some built up and for a while they were the rims from hell – couldn’t get them to go up tubeless ( with an airshot) , put a tube in and then had a 1hr struggle to get the tyre off , tried tubeless again and it then worked – funny thing is the tyres come off very easy now ( guess the tyre selant acts as a lubricant)
So if you dont have the capacity for ‘ operator error’ that I have then they are probably ok – I would go for the scrapers if I was doing it again – I think chain reaction have I45 scrapers in stockPosted 7 months agobikesian65Member
Yes to be fair one of the tyres was a WTB werwolf from some time ago and it was really tight – the only thing that i didn’t like about them was that there a couple of holes near where the bead seats ( for manufacture I suppose) I ended putting rim tape over them
I would advise using soapy water when first putting the tyre onPosted 7 months agobedmakerSubscriber
For balance, I found them the easiest rims I’ve ever used tubeless. Easily inflated (with some soapy water as is standard :wink:) and a very burp proof bead grip.Posted 7 months ago
Only comparable ones were my Nextie carbon fatbike ones, now they really were quite hard to remove tyres from.
