- when are Hope going to be doing Stans complete wheels?
they do have a weird double nipple arrangement so you need two spoke keys (the one is specific to the Mavic rim. reportedly they are not difficult to build, just a bit of a faff (read – take about twice the time to build). So a bit of patience and not doing it as part of a busy workshop schedule.Posted 9 years agopeaslakerMember
Built some 819s last weekend. Have worked with them for ages and love them as a rim. Easy to build and easy to use. I even have a set running straight pull on some Hope Pro III hubs.
There is no reason you can’t do the same with 819s. I’ve run Conti vapors on my 819s tubeless. The thing is… that 819s are heavy. With all the extra mounting hardware they are a 500g rim. If you’re a weight weenie this won’t be nearly as good a solution as the Stans offerings. If you want a fuss-free tubeless experience then the 819 is a brilliant solution.Posted 9 years ago
