    27.5+ rim list

    Someone did this for 29+ rims, thought it was a good idea, so I'll start one for 27.5+ rims as well. I'm thinking anything 40mm outside or bigger should be included. Yes, you can use narrower rims, but they're not ideal. There are probably more that I'm not thinking of, listh them below and I will add to the list.

    Rim Outside width Inside width Weight

    Notubes Hugo 52.3mm 49.9mm 585g
    Velocity Dually 45.0mm 39.0mm 640g
    WTB Scraper I45 49.0mm 45.0mm 650g/687g actual
    WTB Asym I35 39.0mm? 35.0mm 560g
    Nextie 50 50.0mm 45.0mm 490g
    Nextie 40 40.0mm 35.0mm 410g/440g/500g
    Ligthbike 50 50.0mm 45.0mm 450g
    Lightbike 38 38.0mm 31.6mm 440g
    Derby 40.0mm 34.0mm 445g/465g/485g

    Additions on 4/16/15:

    IBIS 741 41.0mm 35.0mm 473g
    Fatlab Plus55 55.0mm ? 642g
    Loaded Precision 40.0mm 35.0mm 420g
    Sun Ringle Mulefut 50.0mm 45.0mm 615g
    Carbonbicycle 40.0mm 35.0mm XC:400g AM:450g DH:520g

    Update 8/19/16: Just realized I haven't updated this in a while, and there are lots of new rims out there.

    DT Swiss XM 551 44mm ? 595G
    Easton Arc+ 35 39mm 35mm 540g
    Easton Arc+ 40 44mm 40mm 595g
    Easton Arc+ 45 49mm 45mm 650g
    Halo Vapour 50 50mm ? 700g
    Kore Realm P35 42mm 35mm 575g
    Kore Realm P45 52mm 45mm 645g
    Spank Oozy Trail395 39.5mm ? 540g
    SunRingle Duroc 40 40mm 36mm 515g

    On the WTBs website Scraper info claimed weight is 560, it might be a typo. It's listed at 650g on most retail websites.

    Thanks for the list!

    I'd add the Velocity Blunt35 for frames that have limited rear tire clearance. I'd also add the recently announced WTB Asym i29 & i35 rims... Availability this June for the new WTB Asym rims.
    I like 'em long, low, slack and playful

    Also Woven Precision in Canada will have mid-fat 650B carbon rims in a few months, as well as Boost 110/148 hubs sooner than that. As soon as their first samples arrive I'll try and get some pictures/measurements. They already do 35mm (external) 650B and 85mm 26er double-wall carbon rims which are easily taped and run tubeless.

    Been looking into 27.5+ for my yelli. Can someone please suggest the most bang for your buck setup? I'm 230lbs and the bike has a 120 mm manitou tower pro.

    For rims, I would go with Velocity Blunt 35's. You won't get near the volume of a full on B+ rim, but you will still get much of the benefit of the higher volume tire. For Hubs, you can't beat Hopes for the price. There are cheaper options, but they probably don't have the reliability factor as Hopes...

    If you are interested, I have a brand new set of black Velocity Dually rims collecting dust in my shop that I need to move...

    Under "tech" specs it lists the rim at 420g (+/- 15g).

    I'm using a set of American Classic Wide Lightning 27.5 wheels 29.3mm internal. Until my Nextie rims arrive. They work well even though they are considered narrow for this new category of tires.

    good to see there will hopefully be some affordable rims (i.e. comfortably <$100) coming too. These off the proposed Mongoose Ruddy

    I don't know if there's a rim only option, but the Roval 650b+ of the 2016 Specialized Fuse and Ruze Pro is 38mm (inner width I suppose)

    Absolutely same 40mm width rims as CarbonBicycle. CarbonSpeed seems to offer better price, and they get wider 42mm/36mm rims, even 50mm width 27.5+ rims

    I got new quotes from Peter on their RM750C 27.5+ and RM950C 29+ rims, only 180 USD/piece. Is it too cheap ?

    Has anyone tried or built up the Mulefut 50 SL? At $122 and a little over 600 grams seems to be a great value to me. I know the 80 SL has received decent reviews, but have not heard much around here on the 27.5 - 50 SL. Please report if you have or know of reviews on this particular rim. Thnx!

    There isn't a rim-only option, and it doesn't look like they are selling the 38mm alloy wheelsets yet, but they are selling carbon 38 mm ID Roval wheelsets, at least with the BOOST hubs. It's a nice looking wheelset, assuming the 24/28 spoke counts work for you. I don't see a non-BOOST option at the moment.

    Wow. That'll give the WTB Asym i35 and Velocity Dually a run for their money. Especially if the claimed weight is accurate.

    Pretty good value for weight and tubeless compatibility. I don't have any experience w/ dt swiss rims. Any good?

    Oh, and dt Swiss, you can see them in the background above, are quite nice

    Those are 26 inch. Setup tubeless well and hold nicely. A fine rim if I do say so

    Also have the Kore Relm rims been discussed yet?

    https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...?category=5987

    They seem to be lighter and cheaper than the WTB or Easton offerings. Wonder how durable they are?

    My Kore Relm 30 hoops should be here today. Plan is to build a cheap set of 27+ wheels for my El Mar. Went with Koozer hubs. If I like the plus size I'll build some nice light wheels later. Will update as I build them.

    Ryde has got 2 midfat options.

    35 mm inner width 590gr
    42 mm inner width 640gr

    Looks like solid rims with extra support/beams inside the construction.

    Zelvy do 50mm (45mm internal) and a 40mm (35mm internal) carbon rims, excellent quality and great warranty.

    Spank are also releasing a 39.5mm Oozy alloy (unsure of internal but should be about 35mm), it's listed on CRC buy not available yet and the info is for a different size. Spanks website is way behind.

    i picked up a pair of DT Swiss XM 551 yesterday, they are very light and very clean, and they do indeed come with the nips and washers



    i havent weighed them on a digital scale but on my bathroom scale, compared to a pair of unlaced wtb scrapers they are roughly a pound lighter

    very excited to get them built, theyre definitely a high quality rim. they were $110/ea for me but i got the bro discount @ LBS. in the states it looks like theyre going for $125-140 retail

    Got my xm551 today, and just laced them all up. Hope Pro 4 boost, DB Alpina spokes 2.0-1.7-2.0), alu spokes an washers that came with the rims. Total 2130gr. A bit more than I was hoping for, but still descent. Each rim were about 25gr heavier than official numbers.

    so i got the XM551's built up



    -super light
    -super well made
    -no visible seam
    -round, no flat spots
    -tubeless perfection: trail boss 3.0 mounted up and held air with zero sealant, snapped into place at around 40psi
    -build up super easy, by counting turns and doing everything evenly, i didnt have to true either wheel at all

    all in all these are probably the most pain free rim ive ever built a wheel with

    bonus points: trail boss 3.0 on this rim measure out to 71.8mm/2.8" freshly mounted. after some riding they might relax and stretch out to 3" but we'll see. tires are FAST though and have a lot of bite in the corners

    I'm still undecided between the arc 30 & 35 for 2.8 fitment... the arc 35 is very scarce right now and has been for awhile and from what i gathered it won't be avail till mid may at a favorable price, hence why not the arc 30??

    Fair enough...

    Sent a pair of Scrapers out for anodizing cause the black just doesn't work for me. Gotta have enough rim for the 3.0's to be 3.0's without max PSI to prevent foldover in the corners. Oh, and so I can get trialsy with em too.

    edited my previous post to correct rim width.

    Just received a pr of them this AM. Lazer etched rim logos, nice rim strip and 580g each. I will eventually have them powder coated white and have custom decals made.

    A quick look around gives me these numbers for 275 alloy 35mm internal options:

    WTB i35 Asym: 610g actual
    Spank 395+: 580g actual
    Easton Arc 35: 540g claimed
    Kore Realm P35: 575g claimed
    DT Swiss XM551: 595g claimed 620g actual.

    I managed to go through with this process after some research and Q&A with spank and other hoop manuf with respect to powder coating / curing temp of 400d with these rims since they are sleeved with an epoxy resin, hence my concern, however everything went well with a pre bake for 1 rim to assess what may or may not result in failure. The result was positive and the PC shop went ahead with both.

    Chinese carbon rims are quite common at that price. Lots of choices out there, I prefer to deal with Peter at xmcarbonspeed.com instead of AliExpress.

    It's fine. I run a 275x2.6 on old narrow Stan's Flow and never have any issues.

    The only downside to a 35mm rim is running something like a 2.25 tire where at lower pressure you might risk denting the rim.

    That being said, I plan to run 35mm internal rims with 2.3 tires. Not worried.

    That's good info, I'd be curious to know on 2.8's. I plan to have that as front wheel 27.5 rim with 35mm outer to fit 2.8 tires to play and 2.4 tires in case I want to race ( 2 or 3 times as year).

    I guess I'm good then...

    That bike looks sweet! That's what I call a real Plus bike, 52mm rims and 3.25" tires. None of those wimpy 2.8" tires and 30mm rims!

    Where are you seeing that price? When I go to their website, I see $228, about the same as all the other Chinese carbon offerings.

    Read somewhere that 40mm ID is the ideal size for 2.8 to 3.0 tires?
    Can anyone confirm this?

    Good choice,Have 52mm on mine,ride aggressive and with thin sidewalls less chance of tire running over rim and or burbing.

    I am not sure though that is why I'm asking. I was about to order a LB 50mm rim with 45ID and from the comments I saw, people are asking for 40mm ID...

    Something I saw on the spec sheet for the new Jet 9 RDO:

    Wheels: STAN'S NOTUBES NEO/ZTR BARON S1, 110X15MM FRONT, 148 X 12MM REAR

    What are these new Stan's Baron rims and what are their dimensions?

    For me, my next "fat" rim will be one of these from KORE. Much cheaper than either the WTB or Easton offerings (nearly 2 of these for 1 Easton and definitely 2 for price of 1 Scraper), great if weight doesn't matter too much to you and $$ savings do,plus I like riveted eyelets.

    @nvphatty and other that have experience with the Spank Oozy Trail395+...

    I've just received mine, and measured the ERD at 557mm. Does this match what others are measuring? Hoping to start my first wheel build off with good numbers.

    Thanks,

    I measured both rims in 3 places.
    First rim was 557 in all 3 places.
    Second rim measured 556.5/557.5/557 for a 557 avg ERD

    Any recommendations for a reasonably priced truing stand?

    Do you plan on building a bunch of wheels in the future? If not, just flip your bike upside down and use the frame and fork as a truing stand. Use a ruler or simply your finger as an indicator. Zero bling factor, but it sure is cheap.

    Mine weighed in at 705 and 711 grams, so a good bit over claimed weight. UC regularly has 10% off 100 coupons floating around, so I got my pair for $119 after shipping fees (they didn't qualify for free shipping).

    But so far they seem like decent rims.

    a ziptie placed on the fork tube works well.

    My only issue with that is once its cut, there's no way to make it longer. My go-to has been a wooden ruler, and a small bar clamp with rubber pads.

    I've also used a grease pencil back in the bmx days, that way you can physically see which spokes need adjusting.
