DT Swiss 240 centrelock straight pull hubs are 356g/pair that to me is best disc brake hubs on the market. Durable and quite light, pricey but you get what you pay for.

Are those the light bicycle rims? I have them too but I used the cheaper Miche 966 hubs 28H and they came in at 1419. Best thing is I can fit MTB 29er tubs or wide road tubs. I will use them on my MTB but I might do another set for a forthcoming road bike.

Yes, the are the LightBike rims. I'm trying to decide if I build another set for the MTB but I'm thinking I may go tubeless on that build.

this was going to be my first question - what's the profile like for gluing a big 50-55mm tyre?

@mentok

I'm not sure if I completely understand your question but I'll give it a shot and you can tell me if I'm off. The rim is 27mm wide so it has a large glueing surface. I wouldn't put anything skinnier than the 27 FMB that I currently have on there.

The other issue you need to consider is how wide the base tape is on your tubular. Wider tubular rims can help create a wider contact point with the base tape and can help prevent a rim from rolling off. I don't see much of any difference in "shape" of the tire on wider tubulars like I see with wider clincher rims. You may feel a difference in cornering because of how the sidewall interacts with a wider rim behind it.

29er tubs fitted like a dream mine are 51mm wide. The shape seems perfect for 27mm FMB or Pave's e.t.c. Wide tubular rims with wide road tubs should be a bit more aero is the width match, given I like wide tubulars I think this is the way I will go for a road disc brake build.
