    Anyone ever order wheels from trails edge?

    Pretty cheap, reasonably light, offset compatible...

    clearly something is wrong, right?

    Yes, something is wrong. That is one of the worst e-commerce sites I've ever seen.

    The bad html was what made me think maybe they were for real... no scam would try using a site that bad...

    also, clearly, you've never been to this site:

    Same shop that makes the wonderful Moose Mitts pogies. Their site may not be up to the standards we're all spoiled with these days, but I wouldn't hesitate to order from them (again). You can always call them too, as scary as that might seem!

    +1, this is a great mom and pop local shop - no funny business going on there.

    Sorry for derailling the thread.
    Rims look pretty nice.Too bad they're 36-hole only. What brand are they?

    FWIW, I ride for them. They are definitely legit, and supplied most of the parts for my last 3 bikes. They are pretty fatbike-aware.

    And yeah, their websites pretty ferkakte. Better to call.
    Let the market decide!

    OK, I feel bad for picking on their website now. FWIW, it looks much better in the Chrome browser than IE.

    Excellent- I think I've found my next set of wheels...

    cheaper and lighter than my stock wheels, that's gotta be worth something.

    Yes!

    See below, Mike built this gold wheelset for me a couple years before I bought my first fatbike, around 2005, these particular rims are no longer in business:

    Mine were the red version, which I think were either Echo or ZHI. Ordered just the rims and had my LBS build them into wheels for my first proto-fat bike:

    Black Pony

    Trail's edge was great to work with.

    Thanks for backing us up everyone...and sorry for the outdated site, this is a winter project of ours. But please keep in mind we are a really honest go goodness bike shop with cyclist for employees...Not Timmy the telemarketer, handing off orders to the warehouse. We take pride in having accurate info and honest (not sugar coated) answers to your biking woes.

    We want to make the new site far beyond what is out there today as far as support, knowledge, and over all feel.I think you'll all like it when it goes live (no time set yet).

    As for the rims, we are out right now...But we can usually get more in for builds (Aaron builds all the wheels by hand) with in a few days. The Holm's rims are 36 hole, but it was really our best source for the 26" fat wheels anymore. The Trials rims (Echo, Zhi, Try-All) are all overseas companies and importing them was just too much trouble.

    If you have questions you can always e-mail us too (I usually get all the emails)

    Thanks again for the support...it is good to be loved for more that our looks :-)

    I just dealt with Trails Edge ordering Moose Mitts and they were great. Brilliant service and no issues.

    Don't worry. They are great and easy to deal with. I recommend them

    Yep, they are legit. I'm semi-local to them and they have built a set of MTB wheels in the past with very good results. The disappointing thing with the Holm rims is the 36 holes- fine if you need a bomber set of wheels, but hub choices are more limited than 32 holes.
