    I have bought stuff (various 29er and cross rims) from them already and this new little company is just great. They are very helpful, fast and are really into bike stuff, not only another reseller. Their rims are topnotch. Me and some of my friends are all using their rims and have no problems whatsoever, tubeless or realworld-trails, they just work. When they have a fatbike rim out, I will order a set for sure. Hopefully its soon.

    In fact, the rims they sell are not made by them, the rims are made by CarbonKing factory which is a professional carbon bike factory, we sell their rims too and assemble wheels with their rims. Here is the link of the factory: Product - XIAMEN CARBONKING COMPOSITE MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY CO., LED.

    The factory doesn't have their own trading company, so they offer rims for many trading companies in Xiamen.

    We are gonna make carbon fat bike frames and rims, frames first and rims later.

    I am interested in a carbon set and 90mm sounds great if the weight is down. I didn't notice a weight posted.

    Interesting design with spoke placement so central. I'm curious how well this will hold being a wide 90mm. Also being tubeless compatible, with such a deep center? Can that be done?

    I think the tubeless can be done well. But, I would caution the wider (90mm) rim with a narrow spoke drilling. Interested in budget friendly options. Very cool

    yeah, wouldnt it put too much stress on sides of rims with drilling so narrow? maybe cross section would help to see

    I don't know weight but looks like they can be had here. Narrow spoke placement like the Nextie diagram. Maybe it's the same wheel?

    They look nice ,are a great price and 90 wide. Makes sense not all fat bikes can fit the 100 well. Hope to build a set up soon!

    I can run 100s no problem but I'm thinking 90's might be a better year round width.

    I've been following all the cheap carbon options, eager to jump on the first fat rims that come to market. I ordered from synergy sports months ago, thinking they were just a few weeks or a month out. Yet no word yet on when they will actually be ready. Then light-bicycle details started to leak and those seemed like they might be first. But those too are probably a few weeks or a month out.

    So... nextie rims it is. After placing an order, email from them on Friday indicated 7-10 days to complete the order. That would mean shipping perhaps by the 31st of march. EMS shipping time in the order confirmation emails is 4-7 days.

    Of the three companies, nextie seems to have the best website and most professional presentation. This is also true of the email from nextie. It is well organized, has proper grammar and has all the info you'd expect from a well run company. If they keep up the good work, they could land a loyal customer base. Competition in the affordable carbon market is really heating up.

    One detail for those doing spoke calculations, nextie says the fat rims have a spoke bed offset of 3mm. Not a huge deal, but good to include in calculations anyway.

    Here's how spokes work out for a set of hope fatsno hubs laced 3 cross:

    Nextie ERD=503mm

    Hope fatsno 135mm front hub with front disc spacing:
    Left diameter = 56mm
    Right diameter = 54mm
    Left offset = 37.5mm
    Right offset = 38.5mm
    --> left spokes = 244.6mm (100% tension)
    --> right spokes = 245mm (98% tension)

    Hope fatsno 190mm rear
    Left diameter = 56mm
    Right diameter = 54mm
    Left offset = 55mm
    Right offset = 47mm
    --> left spokes = 247.7mm (85% tension)
    --> right spokes = 246.6mm (100% tension)

    ^^^Thanks for the info, still up in the air between these and the LB rims. I do like how Nextie have kept us in the loop through the whole process and that is a big plus in my book!!

    Ordered mine ~2 weeks ago when they started taking pre-orders.

    Got shipment confirmation on Thurs. Should see them late next week.

    Communication has been stellar throughout.

    My spoke calc came in at 242 f and 244 r, assuming 3x. But those spokes are already so short, and these rims likely to be so stiff, I'll probably end up going to 2x using DT Rev's or Aerolite's.

    So they're shipping! That's good to hear.

    Which hubs are your 242 and 244 numbers for?
