    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.

    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?

    Now wait a minute, that doesn't sound like normal Davidcopperfield speak. He even figured out how to use the Bold function.
    Either DC has been taking english classes or there is some subterfugery going on.

    Hey, no offence meant I just would love to put those wheels on TI 529 with light pike 29er, nothing wrong about this. It would be a cool bike.

    Cheers
    DC or MC whatever.

    I love them. Most likely my next wheelset. I'm using those rims with XT hubs at the moment and have never been happier. Saving my pennies for CK hubs. *drool*

    Clearance in rip9 08 with MTK 2,4" at 5 Bar.


    and for comparison Mtk vs Rampa
    +
    MTK is 2 mm wider at knobs when both inflated to 5 bar.

    Cheers
    DC

    ps. MTK is 61 mm wide now.

    5 bar(72 psi)! holy cow. Be careful of blow offs, take you head off and WTF....a rip 9! Let us see picture of the bike, you can't tease us with just pictures of it chainstay yoke.

    It must be done.

    At 5 bar they are held for 5 days with tubes now. I want the yellow tape to be pressed firm and stretch the tyres. It is officially my father's bicycle and my dream bike is 529 and I'll pleading Chris cocalis for it 120-130mm front and rear stiff light. DT swiss with carbon bits TA or Fox RLC 120-130mm TA. Red and glowing in the dark like rip9 wheels the same as these.
    My dream bike is like 5.5 29er- a long travel XC bike not an AM which tends to be too heavy and sluggish. I want a long travel XC rocket up to 130mm with 30mm wide 36h carbon rims like those from MC thread.
    A thing that can be ridden at marathons and be taken to the difficult loamy stuff in the mountains. I am sure that there are many folks like me who share similar will. I want it not to exceed 12,5 kgs.

    ps. Since I am light I am fine with weight limit on it, but it must take some small drops on regular mount trails

    They would love you are my LBS. When a mechanic blows up a tube, they have to buy the other shop guys a 12 pack of beer to compensate for the damaged ear drums. At 5 bar in mtb tires, you would become a popular guy.

    I would have thought 4x would lead to less flex. At 36 holes, a good build and those strong rims, I'd be pretty darn surprised if they flexed.

    I discussed 4 X lacing with a prominent wheel builder. 4X is stronger, the spokes are laid more horizontally. They are really stiff. If complainers want to realize, just lace a spare wheelset 4X for a rigid 29er ss or geared.

    If bicycle tires can only 6 bar if then why not 8 with nose very close for increase in performance

    handle bar is with 100mm +7 ritcehy at 110cm from the ground which equals my trekking bikes. I tried it -7 at 107-108 but prefer it on the + but I haven't tried steep ascends yet.
    CVA suspension needs lockout on smooth clims, I set it up according to Niner rip page.

    Edit: I shall keep you updated how this functions as a whole.
