    WTB Frequency i19 rim experience on your disc CX

    Anyone running these on your disc CX bike? Looks like a solid contender.

    so far so good. they're light, about 400g. seem solid. but haven't put that many miles on them yet. and haven't run them tubeless. have the racing ralphs on there now. bead seats well, i was easily able to seat them will a little hand pump on the trail.

    I have some too. Haven't had a single issue. The stickers peel off nicely as well.

    Awesome! Planning to run 32ish mostly but would like to throw a set of 25's on occasionally for longer road rides. Looking forward to them.

    Digging up this thread. Of those that have gone tubeless with the i19 rims...have any issues? I'm looking to build a budget wheelset with i19s and ZTR hubs. Probably going to mount up my existing Kenda Kwicker tires (or maybe a combo of Kenda Happy Medium and SB8).

    They're designed for and work very well with tubeless and come stock on several Santa Cruz builds (like my Tallboy C). I had never converted to tubeless before, but it was so easy i was afraid i'd done something wrong.

    Excellent rim, tough for the weight.

    I have the i23 rims on my Monocog and love them. Just curious about the successes or failures of various skinnier cx tires with the i19.

    I've been running the i19's with Captain CX tubeless tires and been loving it. No issues at all.

    non-ust tires working just fine

    These came stock on my new Cannondale mtb. WTB does its best to dissuade you from using those rims with tires that aren't tubeless specific (UST, TL, TCS), so I was a bit worried to convert the non-TL Racing Ralphs that came stock on the bike to tubeless. The set-up has worked just fine with Stans sealant. Mounting the tires wasn't any more difficult than with Stans rims. In fact, I'm not sure I understand what makes TCS different from BST...

    I had the same experience with mounting up a regular Maxxis Ardent 2.4 to my i23. The bead actually seemed a bit tighter than the Specialized Purgatory 2Bliss 2.4 it replaced on the same rim.

    From what I understand BST is much shorter compared to other tubeless systems. Apparently it makes the bead more secure on non tubeless specific tire beads. Could be wrong though.
