    Looks good, low weight, only .5mm narrower that the Rhynolite which is an awfully good rim.
    But, I'd be more attracted to the Equalizer 29 or 31 because of the increased width, 29.5 and 31.5 respectively, even though they are heavier but not excessively so.
    I run a 1.9 Karma on a Rynolite rim. I've had no problems running such a light tire and I weigh 200. Others who have used this tire have had problems and I'm sure the difference between their experience and mine is the width of the rim. What else could it be?
    More wider, more better. Enables the use of lighter tire which saves far more rotating weight than the difference in the weights of the rims.

    I have run other sun rims in the past, and have had no problems, but I was thinking of switching out my DT TK 7.1s for a wider rim. Thanks
