    Blunts vs. Arch Ex????

    X-Posted in Wheels/Tires

    I have a pair of regular Blunt 29's that are a few years old. These are the 28mm rims and not the narrower SL.

    I see that Velocity has updated the Blunt to run better with tubeless.



    Currently running my Blunts tubeless with the Bontrager tubeless strips.

    Rear rim has developed cracks at the eyelets.

    2 questions:

    1. Is the new Blunt the same ERD as the old rim? Do you still have to use the Bontrager strips?

    2. Should I make the switch to Arch Ex instead?

    190lbs rider on a SC Tallboy.

    Thx.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    I have a couple of sets of Arch EX wheels & they are very good for the money, But if you could stretch a bit more & go for the LB carbon rims, They are lighter & way stiffer.
