Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has tried the carbon rims from Light Bicycle http://www.light-bicycle.com/700C-carbon-road-clincher-U-shaped-45mm-rim-tubeless-ready.html#.Up1JINIW2So. Looking at building these as my first carbon wheelset. I'm around 82Kg and would use these for crits and general riding on flat to undulating terrain. Thinking of front 20 h radial and rear 24 2x DS/NDS with double butted spokes most likely DT comps or even Phil Wood as can get them cut locally. These would be laced to novatec hubs.

I currently ride kinlin xr270 front 24 2x and rear 28 2x and happy how these turned out, wondering if the carbon set will be the same stiffness or stiffer.

Did you even look a few threads down and read the open mold wide aero thread?

I recently ordered some and have some weights of the u45mm rim for everyone...

The 18h rim weighed in at 418g;
and the 24h rim at 469g.

The weights obviously surprised me as both are outside the tolerance of 450g +/- 15g specified on the webpage.
