Hi guys,

I'm looking for a good set of tubular wheels.
Preferably low height alloy rims.

further criteria:
around 1500 gr max.
all black

Hope to hear some good suggestions from you guys.

I'll be running Schwable tubulars on them

gr,
Matt

have a look at the wheelsets from Superstar Components:-

http://superstar.tibolts.co.uk/product_ ... cts_id=499 - 1,290g per pair @ GBP509.00

http://superstar.tibolts.co.uk/product_ ... cts_id=497 - 1,520g per pair @ GBP299.00

imho, you can't really go wrong with Stans Crest rims... nice and strong and can easily be built up in to a 1500g set of rims with the right spokes and right hubs. They are built for tubeless too, so you don't need to run rubber rim-stips - just a strip of tape, a bit of sealant and off you go.

i'm running Crest rims on Hope Pro II Evos with non-tubeless Nobbly Nics (but running tubeless with sealant). They are fantastic. They handle serious trail centre red/black runs, yet are feathery light... they are certainly not 'race day' wheels.

I agree with xcforme. Amclassic hubs + cx-rays + FRM tubular 309 rim. Around 1320g and fairly cheap :thumbup:

Is this for 26" or 29ers?

29ers can use the Velocity Major Tom tubular rim which is half the price of the XMD 309T.

Also the new Sapim D-Light spoke is nearly as light as the CX Ray but significantly cheaper - so making the whole set good value.

Reading the title I though you want a MTB wheel set with a glued tub tyre. DT Swiss make one of these wheelsets. I saw it at a race meeting. Very interesting. 29er too.
