Im thinking of building some 55mm clinchers on some CK hubs I already have. Are Light Bicycle rims okay?

I also have a set of the 36mm LB wheels. 6000km in, very happy.

Light Bicycle have a newer 56mm deep rim> It's 30mm wide for better aero, almost as wide as the 64mm deep 32mm wide wheels Cannondale just released. You'll need a new frame to have 30mm clearance. ... lable.html

If you have the frame clearance, that would be the better choice, but if you don't enough clearance, the 55mm rim will work, but don't go wider than 23mm tyres.

I ve just read some bad things here about some Chinese companies not sending warranty replacements. Are Light Bicycle reputable or is it a risk?

The company that is not sending waranty replacement is Farsport.

Light-Bicycle has pretty much perfect record so far. (as far as i know)
