    Went with the Black Eagle version. Mainly rim profile for mud/snow shedding.

    My Wild Dragon just arrived. Should I use DT Swiss Brass or Alloy nipples? Nextie does not specified. Brass is heavy, more durable but some carbon rim manufacturer do not allow Brass nipples and will void warranty if you do. Alloy nipples with washer is what some manufacturer will suggest but this setup it's prone for corrosion to occur over time. Nextie only specified nipple length on their site, not material. Due to Lunar New Year, I am still waiting for their respond but want to get the wheels laced up asap.

    In all my correspondence with Brian at Nextie he has never said brass nipples were an issue with his rims I have built 6 so far and 4 more to build no issues so far just don't drop a nipple in the rim.

    I'm using 190mm spacing in the rear so the numbers are going to be different. Is there a spoke bed offset or a hub offset?

    No hub offset, 2.5mm spoke bed offset to each side.

    Haha, I dropped a couple nipples in the rim. Had to shake the rim just right and managed to get them to drop out the valve hole. What a pain. I used Sapim PolyAx aluminum nipples without issue on my Wild Dragons. I'm going to be building up a set of Black Eagles for summer riding soon. I've got them on order.

    Thats why I put out that warning as I did also and a royal pain to get them out. Nextie now has a warning on the website about it.

    No one is a dealer that I know of however I started ordering from Brian when they started and at one point was going to be his fat bike rim dealer but just never got around to it so i just order and get a good price and use his rims on a lot of our bikes and friends rides.. The tandem is a blast and we get lots of comments. Passed a few singles on the hillside a few rides ago and they were surprised to see two people pass them! Too bad the weather in Anchorage sucks so bad right now. Thank goodness for studs.

    I would love to get a look at that bike and see some nexties as well before I order them.

    Yeah this weather is terrible. Even with studs it is sketchy.

    I thought I was the only dumb amateur to do that! I used a shop vac to suck it out. [Insert nipple sucking joke here.] Then I made a nipple insertion tool out of an old spoke. I sawed a nipple in half and threaded it onto the spoke as a "stop".

    I also used a nipple insertion tool but did not get one screwed on like I thought and it dropped in. I used a dental instrument to get it out but still a pain.

    Same here. I use a Q-Tip with a fuzzball pulled off one end and the stick sharpened. I screw the nips on this to get them on the spokes but misjudged one and in it went.

    I like the shop vac idea. I'll have to try that next time if it happens again.

    they've been celebrating Chinese new year since the new moon; most of china is on holiday through this week. because of that and the long beach stevedores strike, shipments have been delayed.

    China basically stops for 2 weeks from the middle of the month till the end, don't expect them for at least another week.

    I have an order here for a set of 29er rims, i'm not even going to bother until stuff starts moving again.... and when it does, its bottlenecked.

    Nextie isn't shipping to the US by boat. EMS air shipments take just a few days from A->B.

    Ive had packages from nextie in 5 days, takes 2 days to leave Nextie and arrive in Australia and then anything from 3-7 days for the slack Aussies to get it to my door

    Patience... the Chi New Year is just like us taking 2 weeks off at Christmas, everyone on the run down beforehand, will then take a day or two to get going again... time for the turkey to digest

    You are learning a very good lesson on why you don't order direct from China during Chinese Lunar New Year. If you wanted something fast, you should have ordered at a different time, or from a company in the USA.

    I am considering Nextie 90mm rims and I9 hubs but have no idea who I should use to have them built up. Does it really matter that I find someone with Fat Wheel building experience or do you think I could trust my local guy. He has built me several awesome wheel sets, just never fat...

    Any wheelbuilder will do as long as he can fit a 197mm hub... or whatever your hub with is, in his truing stand.

    I have these wheels, built them myself. Keep in mind the hubs are staggered and you need 4 different spoke lengths which is going to cost you $$$. I recommend going 2mm shorter the Nexties specs stated. I almost ran out of threads.

    We just built up 4 sets and the erd was spot on with what they have listed. That being said the erd did change somewhere along the line so just make sure you use the proper one.

    I agree all the ones I have built have been correct length as long as you use the updated ERD. I think they are actually easy wheels to built as the rims are quite true and stiff out of the box. BTW 3 pedal washers on each side for a standard Park stand with 29r extensions allow 190 hubs to fit in the stand.

    Yep, my nextie rims went through Xiamen on the 12th and haven't had a status update since. EMS must have just dropped all the packages on the floor and went on a 2 week holiday.

    I'm guessing it will end up taking 4 weeks from shipment until delivery.

    I ordered on the Feb 3rd and I guess I didn't make the plane. Hoping to hear something soon but I'm sure it will take them awhile to get their pants back on after celebrating New Years for 2 weeks. Heck I would have to go out and buy all new pants after 2 weeks of partying

    Wow. You ordered four weeks ago and still haven't seen anything? And I thought mine was bad. My rims were last seen passing through a Xiamen sort facility 20 days ago.

    Well at least the weather is crap so I don't really need the rims.

    Mine were ordered Jan 23rd, shipped Jan 30th, and arrived Feb. 17th

    Just my experience. I was aware of the coming holiday so was sure to get my order in beforehand

    Ordered mine on the 18th of Feb. How are folks tracking these? I don't have anything but a four digit order number.

    Nextie will send you an EMS tracking number when they ship your rims.

    This number can be tracked using the EMS website, which is spectacularly bad. USPS.com can also be used to track the EMS tracking number. That's what I use to track my EMS shipments.

    I was told when I ordered them on the 3rd they might get them out before the holiday but I guess they didn't. Oh well no biggie. That being said if I don't get a progress update in a few days I will start to get a little disappointed. I was hoping to try them out in the mega caverns in about 3 weeks.

    Note that mine weren't fat rims. That probably explains why mine have already shipped even though I ordered later than you.

    Uncanny. I hadn't heard anything about my order period, then I post my inquiry here and five minutes later get an email from Brian at Nextie. No tracking, but it's nice to know there is some activity at that end!

    Does anyone have a pic of the matte rims with "clear" decals? About to pull the trigger but am not sure what this looks like.

    Not a fat rim but you get the idea. It's not an actual decal, just a glossy finish. Well that's how these are.

    thanks! I'm not getting the deep V kind so my decal will probably look like that.

    was just sealing the rim - hear a pop and then boom... i was finally happy about the way the build turned out. its the rear wheel, front i will check out, but i did hear something, but i just thought it was the tire/rim sealing. i had about 15psi, maybe 17, but def. less than 20 and no where near the limit (30psi is the limit on these?). any thoughts, good or bad? i just want to hear what anyone thinks went wrong here. tires are 4.8 jumbo jim.

    Yikes. Your rim must have been made at like 4:30pm the day before the Lunar New Year break.

    the girlfriend said i was lucky it happened at home and not outside. i havent had any luck with nextie - hopefully this gets resolved. a few of the spokes are toast though. most are good. but since i heard the front rim pop a bit, i dont know if i could trust that front one either, bad batch?

    Wow, that is what I worry about. Are those the 80mm? I'm waiting on the 65mm snow leopard. If I had to guess, I'd say 1)manufacturing defect 2)did you use high volume at high pressure setting from a compressor? As opposed to high volume at at the low pressure you mentioned ~20psi?

    they are 65mm. i used a compressor at first, then i finished pumping them with floor pump to measure psi. at first i had 10psi, but i was losing air. i didnt think i had a good seal, so i went up to 15psi to see it the tires would seat right and thats when it happened. you can see that the rim delaminates all around. hopefully a bad batch and it can be resolved.

    Unless you had some reason to suspect your pressure gauge might be malfunctioning, sounds like seriously defective rims. Needless to say I'll be following your experience closely. What a PIA for you.

    hopefully this gets resolved. even if the gauge was 10 psi off, i would still be under 30psi. maybe these rims take less psi with 4.8 inch tires? usually the bigger tires have a lower psi limit on the rim?

    IIRC 20psi was the prescribed max pressure for the Snow Leopards? In any case, I wouldn't expect catastrophic failure like that at 30psi, seems more like fiber layup failure to me. Good luck

    Just a guess. In road tire/rim world, manufacturers specify rim max pressure depends on the tire size. If 30psi limit was set with assumption for 4 inch tire then the pressure for 5'' should be limited by 20psi.

    Most floor pumps only read pressure when you pump. If you attach a pump to a presta valve in a wheel that has thirty psi it will read zero until you pump it a time or two. Presta valves do not release air like a schrader valves.

    hey guys... no tube was inside. i was sealing to go tubeless. i thought that with a bigger tire the limit would be lower, but i was at 15 to 17 psi. needle never hit 20psi.

    I feel bad for you. Besides being mentally scarred from the thing blowing up in your house, your brand new rim is toast. I hope the other one is fine. Good luck

    I no longer trust the front rim. I am waiting to hear back from nextie. To see what they would like to do.

    I didn't know they had two different types of 65mm but it's the first 65 they did.

    Ok I got impatient, maybe they are backlogged and he is going through emails but I opened a dispute anyways. All he has to to is send an email or cancel the order, simple. Funny thing is I know he watching this thread, kinda loosing respect for the guy.

    Well here it is Mar 5th and I am still getting auto responses that they are off until Mar 1st! Guess Light-Bicycle will get a shout, they came back a week before Nextie so maybe ready to rock. My LBS has been trying since the 1st and gets the same auto response from Nextie. He is inquiring about dealer pricing and such. They list a dealers on their website so seems like a legit question. Anyone familiar with dealer arrangements?

    I am not defending Nextie in any way, but the Chinese don't treat holidays like we do. Chinese New Year might be 2 weeks long, but some take the week before and after off too.

    The Chinese really have no respect for western sense of urgency. For the most part they are more than willing to blow through deadlines without prior notice. As a customer, you might think you are important...but you really are not.

    I believe it was Monday when he said on Facebook that he was back as of 4 days later he is still skirting my messages on Facebook and Emails yet for some reason he has been answering other people right in the same status. I don't care so much about the timeline and receiving them I just want to protect my monies Finally after opening a dispute he responded this morning saying they aren't done yet, well that's better than them sitting in a box somewhere. I would like to get some spokes ordered but I better wait until they are in my mitts. Kinda wish I would have just built up a set of HEDS.

    ^I assume every time you look at your nextie's you are upset, which means it might be the right time for me to swing buy and relieve you of the Nextie burden. Leave your bike on the front step, I will take care of the rest.

    It's not so much a matter of patience but the rudeness of answering other people right in front of me and not giving me my moment in the sun Hangover is no excuse!!Heck I was a railroader and built and repaired the track for 20+ years, I have done some of my best work drunk or hungover

    You could always buy American rims and get them shipped today for 4X the price.
