Where'd you get the irc tubeless tires? No one imports them in the us.

Built up a set of alpha 340s on DA hubs last year. 32 hole front and rear, seeing as I weigh 72-73 kg i thought this would be a great pair of bullet proof training wheels and i love tubeless. Very, very disappointed in these rims. Way too flexy, just not strong enough for me. They went out of true every two weeks and i eventually got a new set built up using DT Swiss 415s. The second major issue was the bead hold. Not sure if anyone else has had this problem but after initial mounting (prior to sealant) the tires dont stay mounted up on the bead (like they do for me at least on my Shamals and my ghetto converted Dt Swiss rims). When you let the air out the tires fal off the bead. That means you have to add sealant without the tire mounted up properly and it gets very messy. Will never run a pair of stans road rims again. If you want a sub 1500 g tubeless wheelset go for Shamals or Fulcrum Racing Zeros.

1) The stickers are easy to remove. Took me about 3 minutes.

I have not build up my wheels yet, so I cannot answer your second question.

My build will be 28h American Classic Micro 58 and 32h AC RD205 w/ DT Swiss Aerolites. Should clock in at under 1300g.

Actual weight of the rims were lower than the claimed weight. In fact, the 28H rim was under 340g.

I weigh over 200lbs and have complete faith in Stan's, as their MTB rims have always treated me well.


Did you just unpeel the stickers with your fingernail, and that worked fine?

I unpeeled mine with my fingernails. They are some fugly stickers.

For the price I would have expected better quality rims. Do not recommend.

Oh, that's a bummer to hear. But at least after you removed the stickers the rims were not sticky and gooey? They feel so light but maybe the won't last. :(

you could read the thread on the link I posted earlier. i'm not a pro wheelbuilder by any means, but have done enough to know when the rim has a problem, which on my pair could be summarized as poor quality joints. one had a serious hop and both were uneven on the brake track. both required retensioning several times. could be I was just unlucky.

the good news is that they haven't failed yet (touch wood).

Best to heat them with a hair dryer first.
