carbon is the new bling bling for xc race wheels
$$$ but are sweet
mavic 717.... i here you can make them tubeless if you please... they are light and i have used them for a season of riding dh at diablo (in nj) on a beater hardtail.... i rode pretty hard too, yet the front still holds strong... rear broke after it fell a good 30 ft down a rock face
Save $400 a rim, wait 3-4 months and prepare to be blown away.
Good stuff on the horizon.
youve got my curiousity piqued mickey... any details?
Just some very promising looking stuff in the pipeline from a newer US based rim-maker.
go mavic. they are strong and light. the only problem that i know of from them are spoke pull through. the only case i have seen though are on older well used rims.
i have also had pretty good results with sun ds-1/2. on is welded and it a little lighter. they are light and have held up well for me thus far and i ride fairly aggressively and weight quite a bit.
if you are light and ride light look into the stans xc rims. a friend of mine has the 29'er verson and he seems to like them alot but remember that they are light and probably will not last well in the long run. at the same time though they are light, very light.
Stans? That would be my guess.
so will the rims be available in 4 months or just an annoucement press release?
well, the I9 rims are just re-branded from another company. Out of utah... And they appear to be very nice indeed! There is a set on a fed-ex truck coming my way right now...
A set of new I9 rims or the new super secret rims yet to be seen?
super secret yet to be seen
Will these super secret rims be available in tubeless rim brake or disc only?
disc only and will be tubeless with a kit like stans...
Woe is me. Getting damn near impossible to find a nice rim with a brake track thats tubeless. Haha
