    American Classic's Wide Lightning 1512 grams, 32mm wide rim

    Looks interesting: WIDE LIGHTNING|27.5 TUBELESS

    I'm sure price is around $900 msrp. The 1435 gram 27.5 RACE has a 28mm wide rim, same as my Pacenti TL28, so to go 32mm wide doesn't give that much of a weight penalty.

    Damn, that's awesome, and with a healthy rider weight limit of 235#. You know the rule, you can only choose 2 (light/strong/affordable). So since we know the weight and the strength as indicated by rim width and rider weight than the price has got to be high.
    If this is a $500 or less wheelset I'll buy some lol.
