^ that guy is right

I got my rims today:
377g - 24 hole front
376g - 28 hole rear

The rims are exactly as expected so far. That is the only sticker other than a tiny one covering the rim seam and they peel off easily. From what I can tell the spoke bed is about 1.9mm thick and about 600mm in outer diameter (ProWheelBuilder.com has 601mm "Nipple Seat Diameter" in their calc). That puts the ERD, the diameter of the ends of the spokes, in the 604mm range. The spoke holes inside the rim are 8.5mm so I went with red veloplugs. I ordered at $99 each from rockymountaincyclery.com. USPS shipping worked with no taxes to Canada.

I measured the spoke holes at just under 8.5mm but red veloplugs are too small, they fall off the rim. The diameter of the of the spoke ends at the bottoms of the nipple slots is 603mm I'd say measuring a second time with Sapim 12mm Aluminum Poly-Ax nipples. Spoke hole drilling appears to be centered and symmetrical. Build for the front went perfectly with the spokes just poking into the nipple slot. I wish these rims came in silver, the brake tracks are as wide as the part painted black.
    558 g for the front:
  • 24 radial heads in
  • 287 mm Sapim lasers
  • 12 mm Sapim polyax aluminium nipples
  • Novatec A291SB-SL

What are the internal dimensions of these rims? Are they much better at holding onto tyres than the Stans ZTR340?

Just saw that on the AM website they do not recommend a tubed set up, are you running these tubed?

The rims measured exactly as shown on the AC website. I'm using standard tires and tubes which is supported acording to AC. There is a bit more info in my gallery post, linked above in this thread.
