  • HED rims, worth the £££?

    Just looking at replacement rims for my Kinlins. The Kinlins built up fine but I seem to be suffering more dinged rims with the Kinlins than I’ve ever suffered previously ☹️

    HED are silly money for an aluminium rim but they have a nice profile and now seem to have the Fatlip feature where they are re-enforced at the lip to reduce pinchflats and dings.

    I could afford them (and the ERD would probably let me re-use spokes which saves some cash) but don’t see any real world reviews about durability.

    Never used them but looked recently and couldn’t find any stock outside USA

    Yeah… suspect that will add to the already considerable cost!

    Might need to experiment with tubeless+inserts again but I was kind of enjoying the simplicity of just running tube. Weird how I managed to inflict a sizeable dent in the rim without puncturing… 🤔
