- What replacement rim?
I’m currently running DT Swiss XR 4.2D’s however due to as slight mishap about 6 months ago, which I’ve only just become aware of (don’t ask), I’m in the need for a replacement.
What should I swap it out with? Only criteria is it needs to be –
At least the same width as the 4.2D (17.8mm inside, 23.6mm outside)
As inexpensive as possible.
Would prefer something with eyelets.
Oh yeah, 26″ as well please.
Any recommendations?Posted 5 years agochakapingSubscriber
This new Superstar rim?
I have a wheelset with the DS25 rims (widest version from same range) and they are very nice quality.Posted 5 years agoRusty MacSubscriber
The Dt Swiss XR400 rim is the direct replacement for the XR4.2D you have £47 on crc. ERD published as 544mm.
There is a more budget but slightly heavier version of a X430 £30 also crc. ERD published as 545mm.
Theoretically both should build in as direct replacements to your current rim with the spokes you have.Posted 5 years ago
