    Hope Dirtrag is right about Syntace 40mm rims

    I read about the new Syntace wheelsets some time back. The website lists a 35mm wide rim coming in 29. However, Dirtrag is claiming that Syntace will be offering a 40mm rim as well:

    What???? Somebody is going to neg rep me for putting up a link? A link about a potentially cool wheelset? And the comment you place on your negrep is: "What's a hope Dirtrag?". I really don't give two rats about the rep button, but don't just run around neg repping people for no reason. To whomever did this, please have the cajones to explain yourself or just ignore me in the future. Apparently I pissed you off in another forum or something.

    Totally ridiculous.

    Anyhow, possible they did not know DIrtrag was a magazine?

    If she/he didn't know Dirtrag, the person would have by simply clicking on the link. Oh well. I guess I have to remember there are also tweenagers using these boards, so I should be more patient. I would have been neg rep happy when I was fourteen too.

    Unfortunately, Dirtrag got it wrong (to lazy to check Syntace website, I guess). Only W30 and W35 will be available in 29er form.
    W25 and W40 only for 26.

    Still, if I remember correctly (I'm also being too lazy to research), didn't they announce these rims last year only as part of a complete wheel package? Being able to get the rim on its own adds a nice option for wider rims.

    I was afraid DRag had gotten it wrong. My only hope was that maybe Syntace decided to add a 40mm option later and word was getting out at Interbike. Oh well, they do look like nice wheelsets.

    Another poster mentioned in this thread that the rim won't be sold individually. I heard the same thing. Let's hope that changes in the future too.

    Hey, thanks to all who have countered with some positive rep. The neg-rep has been more than made up for, so please save your kindess for other posters who actually take the time to create cool posts.

    You know, I actually don't mind the rep button. If people are being jerks, they deserve to be dissed. And I enjoy a good argument, so I don't mind a little back and forth in a thread. I just don't like cowardice.
