light bicycle carbon rims
I picked up my wheels yesterday afternoon, and first impressions are good. The 35mm rims look a lot more meaty with the tyres fitted, and they give a great shape to the 2.4 Mountain Kings, which now look a good bit wider than they did on the previous rim. They are now on the bike ready for their first thrashing at GT/Inners this weekend 🙂Posted 3 years agomactheknifeSubscriber
Guys, some advice please. I really like the sound of these rims. I will ask my LBS to build them up for me but spoke length, ERD and spoke types are all a bit foreign to me.
Is it too much to expect them to figure this all out and build them around the hubs i want, or should i go armed with all this info for them even though there is a very good chance i will get some of it wrong.
Cheers 🙂Posted 3 years agobrianpMember
Yetiman, could you possibly measure how wide the 2.4 Mountain Kings are on the new 35mm rims.
I have the same tyres and when I first unpacked them, they laid on the table at about 3″ wide. Ever since have wondered how wide they would be on 35mm or even 45mm Dually’s. On my 719’s they are only just over 2″, say 2.2 at a guess.
Would be good to know the width will be ok on my 2014 Fargo, there looks to be lots of room just now.

Hi bolt, just an idea on how they feel on the lefty.
My SLRs are the lightest but they’re stiff and track well. I thought about these rims on dt 240s but don’t want to end up with a flexy mess killing the front end feel.
My idea is to pop 650s in the 2012 26er frame – I love that frame 🙂Posted 3 years ago

At checkout for the 27mm wide hookless carbon rim there is the option of either all mountain or cross country but the description does not show the difference or mention either or.
Anyone know the difference?
Probably very similiar to the am vs dh 33mm ones- same mould and shape but different layup/density (or somesuch, I know nowt about how it actually works). So you’ll get a lighter but less strong option.Posted 3 years ago
