Love the bike and your wheel builds! Do you find anything wrong with foam core rims? Are they not as stiff and why do they use foam core? Thanks!

Thanks. Would you also mind me asking what you weigh? I was going to go 20 spokes front and 24 rear but I've heard the rims aren't the strongest and I think I may need more spokes. I'm 76kg.

Thanks again.

@ruffryder, thanks. these very light foam core rims are not really the strongest if compared to the heavier unbranded rims from china. i have a pair of 20mms lying around with some cracks at the spoke holes (too thin), one was during the wheel build and 2 after a ride. their braking surfaces also heat up faster if used with rubber pads (swisstops, koolstops). now my 50mms have nipple washers and so far no problems.
foam cores are used as the mold instead of internal bladder molds. they also 'supposedly' help structurally strengthen the rim.

@philhul, 68kg. not as stiff as the eurus and ksyriums i used before (too stiff i think) but holds me up fine.

Fantastic bike!

Really like the frame with the orange accents, but I understand you instead opted for a more fitting size?

Great job.

Hi Farm Lin

Really enjoyed reading this post as i am about to buy an Ultimate SLX CF 8.0.

This comes with the Ksyriums Elite and wondered if you know whether it is possible to remove the decals from the rims? i see that you had them on that build after your crash.

Also how much did it cost for your unbranded 50mms, for the full wheels set inc build costs?

thanks

PS. you obviously have a talent for building beautiful bikes

Can you comment on the quality/durability of the Dati hubs? I'm looking at a budget wheel build myself and those have certainly come up.

i had ksyrium SL, not elites. but yes, you can just take out the decals as they are stickers. didnt crash by the way, just warped the ec90s on a steep descent when i couldnt overtake a slow moving bus.
50mm foam core rims-250-300$ shipped. soul kozak hubs- around 450$ shipped. dt aerolites + wheelbuild- around 200$.

good for the money!
no durability issues. bearings still spin smooth up to now, although the axles/bearings are undersized compared to the other hubs these days.
