- Rims – Light, 80/20 road/gravel, 700c, 32h – XR22/26/R460/Other
Building a set of mostly-road-but-some-gravel wheels on a set of 32h Hope RS4s.Posted 1 year ago
I need something not too spendy, tubeless ready, wideish for 35c tyres, and light. I’m erring towards Kinlin XR26s, is there anything better that won’t bankrupt me?
I’ma scrawny bugger so makes it a bit easier, and running discs.
Mavic XC421 was my specified rim for a pair of 32h tubeless ready wheels for the task you’re looking at. I ended up with DTSwiss XM421 after an order misread.
Both are fine but the Mavic’s are cheaper and slimmer.
I also have Kinlin XR31T on my cx bike as tubeless dry race wheels and am pleased with them.Posted 1 year agoluketSubscriber
I just specced some H Plus Son Hydra rims for a bike for 80:20 road:off use and 35c tyres tubeless. I’ve only ridden the bike 3 or 4 times since building but they look lovely and compare to the likes of Grails on dimensions, weight and cost. IIRC it was the Iron Cross rims with that pressure limit though, rather than the Grails.Posted 1 year agoLeonMember
I built some with those pacenti cl25 rims planet X were knocking out. No idea what the psi rating is, but I run them with 32mm road tyres tubeless, and usually run 45f/50psi back for pure road, lower for more mixed stuff. I really don’t think you’d want higher than that on any sort of wide tyre (I’m about 68kg, for what it’s worth)Posted 1 year agokerleyMember
I am using R460s tubeless with 25c tyres at high pressure (the DB version). Actual weight was 450g.Posted 1 year ago
No problems at all and went straight up tubeless even though not using tubeless ready tyres. Very much in the not spendy camp as they cost £20 each from Germany.
The stickers also peel straight off to give me the all black rims I like.
