    Kinda want some, but what I really want is something in the 70mm range, hookless, preferably well under 600gm and $250.

    Too much to hope for?

    If light-bicycle can actually ship fat carbon rims tomorrow, I'll have to cancel my multi-month old order with another manufacturer. Having bought from LB twice in the past, I would be happy to buy from them again. Their quality, price and customer service are exactly what I'm looking for.

    My fingers are crossed that LB fat rims go public tomorrow with orders being taken and product in stock or at least actively in production. If that's the case, my goal is to get my order in before the rest of you cheap carbon addicts.

    Hard to tell what that really looks like from those pics. Hopefully we will see a cross section picture showing it in more detail.

    Awsome! Photos mean that this rim actually exists, that at least one mold has been created and has been used. LB is quite experienced at making carbon rims. So seeing them at this stage of production is a good sign. Unless they encountered an unexpected problem, it seems likely that production will ramp up soon.

    Yeah, that's what we've been hearing through the grapevine already. However there are other similar rims that were announced or leaked by other companies but have yet to be seen in actual photos.

    Could be just the angle but it looks to be much taller than 20mm.

    Yeah, im glad now i ordered the nextie rim even with the small weight penalty.

    Not very aesthetically pleasing so far... without the flashy look of cutouts, carbon rims need to ooze some sex with their shape, so far these look like someone has bent a railway track in a circle.

    lol, I kind of like the pudgy rim look. Throw on a bud-n-lou and it'll look stupid huge. (If indeed it looks as big in person as it does in these photos)

    Dunno, i have no experience with snow but would have thought a flat surface would have been the worst.

    Centrifugal force holding it on a flat surface rather than a pointy profile throwing it off ??

    Let's not jump to conclusions though. There is likely an optical illusion at play in those photos. The sidewall is in the foreground while the other part of the rim is in the background. The foreshortening affect is pretty pronounced, making the near part (the side wall) look much larger, comparatively, than the rest of the rim.

    Not jumping to conclusions really, just throwing some ideas out there.

    The camera has done them no justice, pic #2 makes it look like the rim is laying flat, touching the "lightbicycle" table cloth.... will be interesting to see the rim profile when released.

    I'm betting that it looks like this.
    (But yeah, it does look bloated in the photos)

    There's been a significant weight saving since that drawing as the finished rims are apparently now 630g+/-20.

    No jumping here. A little speculating though based on information put forth. These pics were most likely taken by a cellphone. Looking at the picture and taking perspective and distortion into account it still looks to be higher than 20mm, if the rim is 90mm wide then the height looks closer to 25mm or even 30mm. Again that is allowing for distortion and skewed perspective.

    I got the same email from LB this morning.

    The weight savings alone from my current Clown Shoes is incredible...however my question is will these work in a Moonlander? I'm told the offset may be too much for this rim.

    Anyone have any comments on this?
