- which rim? (smashed wheel content)
Was wondering that….I guess hanging up on a log with a 15 ft gap and a decent drop would kill most rims I think the Mavic was £35 so trying to keep it about the same unless a little more would give a lot more.
I know this is lame, but I’m usually quite smooth…..I’d done that drop loads & loads of times!Posted 6 years agoRusty MacSubscriber
I noticed quite a difference when i changed my rims from old D521 to xm321’s think there was about 60-70g per wheel. The rolling of the wheels seemed better on the flat and uphill.
I was going to say have a read of the reviews on CRC but as the graphics have changed for the rim they have removed the old reviews. There was people that had used the 521’s out in whistler and in the alps for multiple seasons with no real trouble. The EX721 is more of a downhill rim so if you are putting it on a tril bike you may feel it a bit much.Posted 6 years agokaminaMember
It’s a bit heavy, but if you kill rims the peace of mind you receive from having something bombproof might be more valuable then a small weight saving. I did not notice a difference while riding going from Industry 9 with Flow to Hadley with 5.1’s despite the weight going up about 150g, however I did notice a small difference while carrying the bike (not a problem).Posted 6 years ago
