    If it looks like this, you found the right stuff.

    Light-bicycle are replacing my rim free of charge. I only get to pay shipping. Good and fast service and I consider myself lucky for getting this offer.

    As I said, I'm not 100% sure it was a rim strike but it certainly looks like it. If it was, I would have dented a similar weight aluminium rim without a doubt. To think I had broken my saddle rails, it was a hard impact.

    P.S. I consider myself hard on wheels although I am ~150 pounds. Riding a hardtail certainly doesn't help but man is it fun!

    Bikerumor link to Stan's new carbon rims at Eurobike. No mention of weight, width, or prices. They also don't mention if the rims will be available as rims only or just complete wheelsets. Supposedly more info at Interbike so we'll find out more in September.

    Just ordered 2 of the light-bicycle.com wide 29er rims (matte, UD, 32H) last night. I'm going to have them laced up to the stock DT Swiss 350 hubs and (hopefully) the stock spokes/nipples as well. They will be replacing the DT Swiss XR400 rims that came on my Yeti SB-95 Race build.

    Got mine yesterday. LB wide 29 rims (matte, 3K, 28H). Weight 378 and 380 gramms.

    Visually they look great. I'm exited how they will be when I will have laced them. I will lace them with Sapim CX-Ray, 3-cross, Alu nipples and probably Tune King/Kong hubs.

    Will be a nice light wheelset.... :-)

    Gonna keep an eye on this. Definitely like my Crests, so these would probably be good too. Concerned for impact strength though.

    I'm not selling anything at the moment and when I do I take out an add. I've paid for about 6-7 so far. This ******* is a manufacturer spamming the site. He should buy an add.

    But you want updates on his products, its just like signing up for updates from any other manufacturers.

    I don't have any say in whether or not this guy is posting in this thread..
    And I have never said you have to read his post.
    I was just saying that I didn't mind reading it.

    I see what you mean, it is just that I get a bit stubborn when people tell me what to do, especially if it is not exactly in the form of good advice..

    (Cheap) Chinese Carbon Rims?

    Are you 9 years old?
    Why don't you want to give out your e-mail address? Probably so you won't get spammed.
    He repeatedly spams the boards selling products, which is not what the forum is for and not fair to paying advertisers, even if you personally don't mind reading these particular "updates."

    You were an ass and fired back at me asking if I had an add. I'm not a manufacturer looking for free advertising on a website. He is. Much different.

    No I am not 9 years old but over 50 unfortunately.
    Giving my email address is just not my way of gathering information.

    I have been on European mountainbike forums for at least ten years and things have always been relaxed there...
    I just came here to learn more about Chinese frames and rims.

    I suppose I really have to watch my words very carefully on this forum otherwise some people get very rude.

    Getting back on track...

    I now have 700 miles on a set of these rims, touch wood, no issues.. I have ridden road miles, fire roads, single track, rock gardens and even drop offs. The tire pressures I'm most happy with are 25 -26 front and 28 rear.

    Feed back is great with my wheel set up, and weight is really good. I have the Hope Evo hubs with DT swiss Revolutions and brass nipples.

    I saw a set of American Classic hubs that have me thinking of a light light wheelset....maybe in the 1400 gram range.. mine are 1610.

    I'll post up again at 1000...

    Good to know but tire pressures don't really mean anything unless you put down Tire sizes as well.
