    Anybody know anything about Yoeleo?

    27.5" MTB Rims - 27.5" Carbon MTB Mountain Bike Clincher Rims 25mm Single Rim

    Its nice to finally see some different spoke hole options from 32. But weight wise they are not lighter than Stans. I guess its all about the ride quality, but i wouldn't know anything about that..

    Stans makes some of the lightest aluminum rims and are very affordable. With that comes a strength penalty. Before arguing "ive been running crests for 28 years and havent had a problem" just think of this, Carbon has a much superior strength to weight ratio. these rims made up to the same weight will be much stronger than an aluminum of equal weight.

    i have never bent a Stans rim, although plenty people have, but i can definitely feel a difference in stiffness between those and my ENVE rims.

    The Enves are quite but more expensive; but other than price I've heard nothing except good about them

    Are $160 carbon rims for real?

    As in "you get what you pay for"

    Okay, I'm gonna call total BS on this statement! I'm pretty sure Stan's rims didn't come about until well after the guy invented the strips/goo sealing system. And, this site says 2001 for the strip/goo system. So unless my math has "expired," I believe 2001 to 2012 is and always has been eleven (11) years? So, are you from the future?

    Now, to the point... are you getting a set of these 650b carbons? Where, the ebay site or the yodoladoda-whatchamacallit? Were you quoted a delivery time frame? Thanks.

    Oops... nevermind... just saw your earlier post.

    It's not humor, it's trees (one tree actually). And it didn't go over my head, it body-checked me coming off a wood feature at Trestle Bike Park. It sent my upper arm and elbow into my ribs and I'm pretty sure there's separation between bone and connective cartilage...making breathing a bit labored. So, I blame hypoxia!

    Much better than the 25mm clincher IMHO. 17mm of the 25mm clincher is way too narrow for a good trail rim IMO.

    I'm going to try the Extralite Hypers
    Wanted a straight pull spoke, and these are retarded light although expensive.

    Where does it say 17mm width? 25mm is the section depth, not width. All carbon Asian 650b rims I've researched so far have been 30mm wide, with the exception of one, which was 28mm. 24mm and 22mm internally, respectively.

    Edit: Nevermind, I see that one now. That's a new one I haven't seen before... Heavier, narrower, more expensive and looks like a pain in the butt to set up tuebless...

    I've built up 2 sets of road rims without issue. One pair takes a beating on a disc brake equipped CX bike. Never built up the ENVE rims, but I want the ENVE rims. Just can't justify the price for myself.
