    new carbon hoops color

    I asked light-bicycle if they could make the rims a color other than black. Brian at light-bicycle got back to me very quickly with an answer. I asked for blue then sent him a pic of the blue hue. After a few quick emails over a 24hr period, the details were worked out and here are my new rims. They weigh in a 400 grams on the Park scale and are 22.5 mm in the inner width. So a bit wider than arch 29ers and more than 10% lighter. Going to build up with
    Wheelsmith 2.0 1.7 2.0 spokes with dt 350 hubs for my Turner Sultan.
