    Yea, that's not bad!! My 30mm outside width, hookless 29er 32 hole LB wheels with Hadley hubs and Sapim Laser spokes and alloy nips, tape and valves came to 1798g. Your Dt Swiss 350 hubs are lighter than Hadley. The 240 DT Swiss are way better than the 350 and are made in China that's why the 350 are so inexpensive. How are the bearings holding up? Getting ready to put them on my new Pivot Mach 429 carbon "green" the frame just came in!! Can't wait. The Derbies look like nice rims !!

    Has anyone had any experience with the iPlay rims, or is there a separate thread for these?

    The Derby rims are great, but I want to use that set for more gravity, super chunk as they are quite beefy at 455 grams. The 350s are great hubs, just 30-60 grams heavier, due to the hub body that is maid in Taiwan, not China. I've never had problems with the bearings on all three sets of wheels that I run them on, but I live in the desert and don't wash my bike as much as most. I use a 36 or 54 tooth star ratchet in all my 350s just like the 240s, so not worth the money since they aren't rotational weight.

    Welcome to the 429 team green club. Best bike I've every owned and makes up for the Kawasaki dirt bike I never got when I was a kid!

    My Light Bicycle Wheels

    Hi Folks, after about a year of reading and a lot of waffling I finally bought a set of pre-built wheels from LB:
    29er 30mm wide rim, 12k,Glossy, 32holes, Red Hope front standard QR/135mm QR 8/9/10s, black pillar spokes and black pillar nipples.
    The cost was a bit more because I got the Hope Pro2 hubs @ $896 with everything.
    I weighted them without skewers and cassette of course and they came out to be just about 1560g for the pair, so that seems pretty good to me. I've already had about two races and 5 rides on them and the verdict is that they are quite stiff compared to my older aluminum wheels. When I try to just crash into bigger rocks to go over them like I used to, it seems to rebound up more. I haven't weighed my bike yet, but I think I dropped maybe 1/2 a pound or so. I'll check. I'll also post some picks here - hope the info helps - sorry but I accidentally deleted the pic of the rear wheel weight.
    I also should note I did not go for the hookless bead just in case it turns out to be a bit of a fad. I usually run 2.2's at about 20psi on the front and 23 on the back when I race and I'm about 168pounds on a 24 pound hard tail.

    I made a mistake saying 1798g it's 1698g for my set with tape and valves. Hadley and Chris King need to get the weight down under 300g for the rear. My new favorite hub now is Project 321 hubs at 285g for the rear with 3 year warr. The Hopes are pretty light, when you think about it the value above, no wheel set at 900 bucks can be bought from any place that will outperform your set !!

    I plan to buy LB RM29C06 or RM29C02 Hookless rims.
    Has anyone Niner Air 9 Carbon frame owner tried is there enough space for wider RM29C02 rim and 2.25/2.4 tires?

    I have the original 29er carbon hooked rims with Racing Ralph 2.35's with no issues and some space on my Air9Carbon so I am confident you will be fine.

    (Cheap) Chinese Carbon Rims?

    I am a "angry"singlespeeder and I need more hill grip.
    I was thinking to do about 1400g wheelset. So what you think, is it possible to make it to RM29C02/RM29C07 rims or is it better to settle for narrower RM29C06 rims?

    My daily rims are 1402g using the 27mm hookless, 1420 spokes (32 hole) and AM 130 and 225 hubs. Rim weight was below spec at 357g and 358g. You would need seriously light hubs and/or low spoke count to get near that weight with heavier rims.

    How much is this wheelset? The profile looks suspect, the rim is only 4mm wide at the rim edge, the Enve are 7-9 mm of carbon, and Light-Bicycle is 5-7mm. 4mm may not be enough material for structure? Anyone care to comment?

    It does not appear to have a bead hook or a high spot on the bead seat to lock the bead to the rim. I would say that it would be easy to push the tire off toward the inside whenever you hit a rock or root. I would worry about that much more than if the rim would be durable.

    Bead hookless rims are tested and used commonly. Roval has same structure. Im just wondering that wall thickness outside Xc-riding.

    Enve also are now completely hookless, with 5 year warranties. However, they are 9mm thick wall thickness. My concern is the 1 yr warranty with 4mm thickness. For $860 shipped, it is about $120 more than Light-Bicycle with Novatecs, so I assume that is a good deal to get two DT240s for that price?

    I am aware of hook less, but they have a high Ridge on the seat to help hold the tire on.

    Enve m70s are 3.5mm. M60s are 3mm.

    Looking to do the same build, but I can't seem to find a good deal on the 240. Post back if you find anything.
