I've got a pair of Enve UST rims I'm building up. I've also got a disc brake equipped CX frame on the way.
I'm hoping to run the Enve's, and am wondering if people have tried running CX tyres on these? I see the Ritte CX proto had them. Internal width on the rims I've got coming is 24mm, so quite a bit more than the Notubes / HED / other wide offerings.
I'm more concerned about the tyre shape given the increased width of the rim, NOT whether they'll run ok tubeless / tubed.
Thanks in advance!
On a side note, if you get them built up and can't use them, there a a whole lot of 29er riders that would be happy to buy them.
Crossmax SLR Disc 29" and
Crossmax ST Disc 29"
Only rims are different kind of in these wheels.
I have red somewhere that for exsample New Carbon Felt F1X 2013 is equipped with these Crossmax SLR Disc Wheels.
Any + and - to using these wheels with disc CX bike

Well at least now we know someone who has done it and had success with getting a 29er wheel setup with CX tires. Was that the Clement PDX or LAS clincher? I am building up disc cross frames for the wide and I and decided to order two sets of carbon 29er tubeless wheels from Light-Bicycle.com in China.
As you can see in the image above, the rims are 20mm deep, 21mm internal, 27mm external width and although I dont intend to race that wheelset, I was unsure whether to try to run the tires (Specialized Trigger Pro or Clement LAS) tubeless.

For races conducted under UCI rules - typically Pro, National, or World Championship events - then 700x33 is the widest tire you can legally race on. With that said, I note that officials last season at Masters Nationals and Worlds checked tires by pressing a fixed width plastic 'caliper' over our front and rear tires (best not to be sitting on the bike when they do that) as we entered the starting grid but despite there being several officials in the pits, I did not see any checks of wheels or bikes in the pits.
What does conventional wisdom say about the measurements of the Easton EC90 carbon 29er MTB rims?
Internal Rim Width: 19mm
External Rim Width: 24.6mm
I have a frame with wide clearances and don't ride UCI races so don't care how fat the tyre is - in fact at 84 kgs the bigger the better! Would a 33c Grifo stand any chance of blowing off a rim with these dimensions? Esp if it got up to 50-60psi on the road - does anyone have experience? I'm very tempted by these wheels despite to massive price tag.
Thanks for opinions or experience.
