What's a reasonable weight for 29er wheels…..
I have Pacenti TL28 rims which have a good (23mm) footprint as they’re a coupla mm wider than Arch/Crest and take a reasonable amount of abuse for their(450g) weight. Oh and plump up the tyres nicely for some extra cush.
Hope or DT hubs are my faves.
I’ve built a set of TL28’s with Hope Evo Front Hub and Dt 240 rear hub, ACI Alpina Spokes and they’ve come in at 1750g which is reasonable for trail wheels. (I’ll probably move them on in a month or so if your still looking then).
I’m going for some light bicycle 35mm carbon rims next on dt240 hubs. The new wheels should come in at just under the 1500g mark, which will be a nice weight saving.Posted 4 years ago
