Sun Ringle Inferno rims
Ebayed a new sun ringle inferno wheelset from a bike and no one was interested, went for buttons. Whereas I’ve sold ‘ridden-in’ mavic / hope stuff for decent money. Doesn’t appear to be a highly rated rim / brand here.
Of course that could be a good thing if they are actually decent, could pick some up for not very much money.
I was getting rid as it was not completely clear that they could run tubeless – threads on mbr suggested it was very hit and miss.Posted 4 years agomrmonkfingerMember

Sorry, Phil, late reply.
Not much experience yet as still a new build. However, they build easily and are very nicely made. Quality of finish is very good. The weld is one of the best I’ve seen yet and only produces a small kick when spun and checked in the wheel building stand. I was able to build a good tight wheel (125Kg or there about) with DT Comp spokes without suffering loads of spoke twist.
I used 25mm Stan’s yellow tape – one turn – and a Stan’s 35mm tubeless valve. I fitted a Specialized Ground Control 2Bliss tyre which took to the bead first pump. The tyre had been previously used.
I’d give them a go.
I looked at the WTB Laser i9s but wanted a wider internal width than they have. The Vapour is about 22-23mm I think.Posted 4 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
what mrmonk says, unfashionable in the UK so some bargains to be had on what are good quality rims. I managed to wreck both my DT 5.1s in separate incidents, CRC were doing various Sun rims for peanuts, I picked up some EQ31s (same ERD as old rim so straight swap) in winter camo for about 18 quid each (rrp £60 which is close to what DT5.1s go for).Posted 4 years ago
