    Coincidentally, if you don't mind a 3K/glossy finish, you can get a 24H version of the 29XC24 rim shipped immediately from stock at 15% off (so $130-ish + shipping) from Nextie's "leftovers" inventory here:

    Also note that you don't have to use such a narrow rim, the norm is wider. If you go wider you will have many more rim options, and most people run a wider tire in the front anyways.

    In addition, typically rear wheels fail more often than fronts (higher loads and worse spoke angle), so if your front failed it may mean that the days of the rear are numbered. In other words, full wheelset.

    It melted because it was to close to the exhaust of my car

    Fair enough. That's why I said potential answer.

    Ok. So I ordered a set of the 35mm's from the USA office as 1) it ships faster (got mine in a week) and 2) in the event I need to warranty, its both cheaper and faster to ship within the states.

    Premium was about $40 compared to shipping from china, its $80 more expensive compared to nextie for a pair.


    Also, Pro tip for confirming / checking for angled drilling. Take a spoke, add a nipple to it. The drilling angle isnt noticiable to my eyes, and gravity will easily pull the spoke whichever way you are leaning the rim. So pull down on the spoke and rock it from left to right, you should feel it "notch" one direction and not the other, that should match up with the sticker direction.
    Lean back, Hit both brakes, And ask yourself, Do you feel lucky today?

    Same here! Hookless 27 mm outer/22 mm inner width laced to Hope Pro 2 EVO hubs. Were installed on a hardtail for the first year, now on a 120/110 mm travel FS 29er. Over 2000 miles, and just some surface scratches. Still true and round - love the low maintenance. These were my first wheel building experience, and it turned out awesome. Ted

    When you order rims on the light bicycle site, is the price ($280) for a pair of them, or just one rim?

    It's price per rim, unless it's stated otherwise.

    Ouch! I have a set of wheels on order with them, but was thinking of upgrade the rims on my B+ wheels that I already have on my bike. I don't think my sram hubs are worth spending that kind of dough on.

    You can always buy a pair of Dt hubs with the rims

    I just mounted a set of i29 asymmetric rims on DT350 boost hubs from Carbonfan.com. I started a separate thread with some pictures and initial thoughts here as this thread is crazy long: New Carbonfan Wheels. They construction quality seems good and my tires mounted easily without tools and just a floor pump. There arelots of users here who have had good experiences with Chinese rims but Carbonfan seems to have a smaller base so I was a bit hesitant. That said, so far I'm very happy with the wheels.

    I think it's impossible to tell if construction of any carbon rim is good by looking at it. The factors of quality are inside and you cannot see that. The only thing you can tell are defects that are visible externally, those will almost never be sent to a customer.

    I built up a set of wheels with the i29 asymm Carbonfan rims about a year ago and they've been doing great.
    Do the math.

    Point taken. I think that's a fair assessment. I've seen a few posts about carbon rims arriving with visible imperfections but thankfully I did not notice any on mine.

    That's good to hear! Hopefully their durability holds up!
