    Good job! My 4X aerolite dt spokes 36 29er wheels- propably the best ever.

    The time has come for you to peruse these round devices with 36 Dt Aerolite spokes laced 4 crosses with brass nipples:
    298 and 300mm are spokes' lenghts

    why not 36er?

    why not any manufacturers like stan's or KH make such round objects in 36er to allow with 7X lacing with titanium nipples? would be working well with fox70 fork, 220 mm travel. manufactureres' needs to get on board with what riders want!!!

    Those look like nice, stout wheels. Be sure to give us a follow-up after a thousand miles or so.

    wow...the 29erification of DC has commenced after years of hopefully fruitful research, emails, industry pleading, blackmail and threats. DC those look like some seriously stout wheels, what frame are those destined for? I am giddy in anticipation of this revelation especially with the recently announced DWlink turner and new Niner WFO bowing into the ring.

    My imagination is alight with possibilities as must yours. Inquiring minds need to know....

    Since you now have the best wheels ever, the time has come for you to go away.

    Nothing more to be learned here for you it seems.

    You're full of it of course, but I'll hand it to you, nice wheels.

    And whichever (lack of independent) thinking lead to it, those are fine wheels, and I can't find a flaw. Now finally ride them, and ride them hard.

    Not to worry. Even though the WFO is official today, he has moved on to the next big thing in vaporware.

    Gotta hand it to DC, based on the number of heavies weighing in, he has a substantive readership.

    Nice wheels, got any action pics yet?

    There is no way those will stand up to abuse because the front hub is only 110mm wide. Too narrow. It will fold on the first gravel path. At min 30mm 160mm wide 36er 12 inch travel.

    O.M.G.

    I just ordered the same wheelset yesterday (only with DT Alpine III spokes.) I even ordered green 36h hubs 4X. Maybe it isn't too late to switch to mango. I'm so proud. Or something.

    Oh you mean that frame. well it is just a plain super secret ultra stealth Titanium Pivot 529 with RS Pike 29er limited edition with carbon bits 1400 grams, which is not bad. I've gotten a killer deal on those.

    Let's start the DC frame/fork pool now; I say RIP9/Manitou Minute 120mm w/20mm axle.

    Having lurked on these forums for a long time, I reckon DC is a fake. An actor. Paid by MTBR to bring a bit of color to the forums. He can't be for real. Entertaining, though.
    There are a couple of other suspicious characters, too!

    Look man. I've never been a jerk to you. I was genuinely curious about what you bought since you said it was on the way. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt. If you're going to answer like a smart-ass you can forget it.

    I there an "ignore" function on this forum?

    Damn. I just noticed, DC has more posts than I do. perhaps I should spend less time riding what I have?

    Seriously though, nice wheelset. What are they going on?
