    WTB Dual Dutry FR vs Rhyno Lite 29er rims

    Any opinions? I choose these because of budget and RIM brake compatible> This is all I know. Wheelset builds on these rims are $315. Any opinions on which is stronger? I will be using DT Swiss Apline III spokes with Surly new disc hubs.

    Thx.

    Well, both are very similar ride wise. Rhyno Lites are a bit wider. I have about 10k miles on a set of each, no issues. I would probably go with whatever costs less.

    What kind of riding do you do and how much to you weigh if you don't mind me asking.

    Strength wise its probably a wash. The International Bead Seat on the WTB's holds tires really well and works great if you have any tubeless ambitions.

    Too bad you're not in Australia, I would have let you my Dual Duty wheels. They were specced on a SS hub with my GT Peace9r, they weigh a ton and are now collecting dust in my garage, so unless you're planning some serious Free ride....
