Someone's posted that a schwable 25mm on a LB56 rim comes up at 29mm. The Conti is a similar size to the schwable accorinding to BRR so should be the same. I'd estimate the LB46 rim and a 25mm Conti would come up at around 27/28mm = ideal for the wheel.RideSki wrote: ↑Thu Feb 21, 2019 12:55 pmHi all WW newbie here, has been intresting reading this thread and all the others RE Chinese/Taiwan rims. As I'm on a budget I think this is the way forward for me, although I'm thinking of investing some of that saving in higher end hubs (i.e better than DT Swiss 350).
After some thought I have decided the WR46 from LB would be a better choice for me over the WR56. I currently have the stock Reynolds AR58 with tyres 25R/23F, they have 19mm internal width and there appears to be plenty of space to go wider/higher front and back. This is for an Aeroad.
My reservation atm is whether a 25mm Conti 5kTL would come up much wider than the external rim width of the WR46 28mm. BRR website measured the 5kTL in 25 as 27mm, and that's on only a 17mm internal rim.
Has anyone got/had a 25mm conti on a 21mm internal rim - be that Light Bicycles or otherwise? The closest mainstream wheel I know of is Roval CL/CLX with their 20.7mm internal. If it did end up 28 or 29mm is there that much penalty by not hitting the 105% rule? Such a shame Conti arent making the GP5kTL in 23mm like they are with the clincher version
Does your aeroad have odd brakes? A modern Shimano brake opens up beyond 30mm. So none of these wheel/rim/tyre combo's should be a problem.
