    Alex XD-Lite...

    Anyone know where to get these rims online? I've already ordered my spokes, but then my rim order was cancelled at the last minute saying the distributor was out of stock... (why list it as in stock if its not in your warehouse...?)

    Anyway, I've tried several other places and no one seems to have them... Let me know if you know where to get them.

    Or...! If anyone knows another 650b rim with the same ERD, that would be cool.

    OO as in Outside Outfitters? Online they appear to be out of stock, I guess I could call them though.

    I tried Universal, Nashbar, Joyride, and a couple other randoms...

    I guess the ERD between the Alex and a Stans Crest is only 1mm difference, assuming they're correct in their measurements. That's only a .5mm difference in spoke length. I'll be good on the rear, but the front I had already rounded up so I only had to buy one pack of spokes... But with a Crest they'll be too long.

    Maybe i'll hold out so I don't have to buy more spokes for a rim that is almost 3 times as expensive...

    Any leads on the Alex rims?

    yup. saw that too. Nor the wtb laser disc or wolvs. I guess if one wanted some rims to run the 2.35's on they're good to go.

    I had a shop shorten and chase more threads on some that they had but were longer then I needed. No charge too. Might be an alternative for you.

    I should have ordered a spare set of xd's but ended up getting a pr of lasers to try out along with them. Considering all the other hoops are 2-3x's the $ of the Alex. ;o
