- Wheelbulding – budget (ish) 29er rims
I’ve a pair of hope pro 2 hubs kicking about and fancy having a go at building a new set of wheels for my 29er. A baby onthe way means I can’t stretch to Stans rims and anyway I’d prefer not to spend too much in case I make a arse of it!
I’m not bothered about super light weight but would prefer overall rim weight to be around 500 – 550 grams or so. A rim that’s easy to set up tubeless would be a bonus.
So far i’ve looked at the WTB i19 (seems a bit narrow) and the i23 and the Sun Ringle Inferno rims, which seem to have a few options in terms of weight, width and price on CRC. Can anyone recommend any others I should be looking at? Not keen on paying more than £40 per rim.Posted 5 years ago
