I got mine from Far Sports except one broke during the build and they didn't want to know about it.

Random question, where are people picking up the 20mm carbon tubular rims from? I've had a look on hong fu and the smallest they do is 38mm. Any guidance much appreciated.


Archtek.

I'm wondering if this wheelset is good for me. I want a light (sub +-1250 gram) and stiff clincher wheelset. My weight is 64kg.

rims: ztr 340 alpha: +- 350 gram each
front hub: M5 straight pull 24: 40gram
rear hub: M5 straight pull 28: 190 gram
spokes: sapim cx-ray: +- 190 gram
nipples: alu: +-10 gram

weight should be around 1195 gram

any thoughts?

What is the asking price? Link/source?

I'm thinking of buying a set of these chinese wheels. But I'm not sure about spoketype + number, and hubs. I'm certain I want Archteks 20mm, but SP or J-B spokes? I'm looking at the bikehubstore.com hubs:

This paired with this
or
this paired with this

The SP hubset will weigh 292g, and the J-B will weigh 277g, but thats such a small difference that it doesn't really matter.

I think I'm going to be using CX-rays. I weigh around 68 kg/149lbs and they will be racing wheels.

There's a massive thread in another MTB forum concerning the 29er rims from Light Bicycle in Xiamen China.

Has anyone here built a set of tubs bought from there? If so, it'd be great to hear your view of them.

Cheers,

Re: bmcube nice wheel build but that doesn't look like a straight pull rear hub. How is the stiffness, I hear alphas can be flexy, but maybe not at 24/28 with 64kg.

I think they are ~380g now. They thickened the spoke bed a while back.

I finnally got around to signing up for the forum after lurking for a few months. I Would like a set of the hoops, but I am unsure of what size i should get. 50mm or 88mm? The front hub will be dt swiss 240 straight pull with cx-rays. I am looking at a 20/24 build. I am a big guy so I don't imagine more side force from the wind will be that big of a deal percentage wise. My current front wheel is 1400 grams with tire. I will be moving to the dark side and using tubulars. I am hoping to shave some weight off my total setup.-David

your current clincher wheelset is 1400 gr with tire include??!!
if this is right i don't know how you can go lower than that even with tubular wheel, need sub 1000gr(with 50 to 88mm this is hard) wheelset and sub 400gr tire+glue

He said the FRONT wheel is 1400g! :)

Assume ~1800g for the rear? Therefore plenty of weight to be shed!
