    Notubes Hugo 52mm Rim

    I'm surprised there aren't any threads here on the upcoming Notubes Hugo 52mm rim.

    The shape is very interesting (different). They claim that it works well with tubes but it seems like the internal box would stress tubes somewhat. Thoughts on that?

    I know I'm looking forward to building up a set for their presumed tubeless capability.

    Cool when did that pop up? There are threads, but all reference the demo ones and not much other info.

    Wonder what the rim only price is?
    Doesn't look like many options as far as hubs for the pre built wheels.

    Bike Rumor says MSRP of $145.

    Maybe my flaw was using the term Hugo in my search for threads...

    Your flaw was expecting vBulletin search to work worth sh!t. It doesn't.

    Use google with MTBR.com as the domain flag next time. If you (regrettably) use vBulletin to search, look up "google machine" and see if that brings up the thread on this topic.

    TLR; vBulletin search sucks.

    EDIT: good on you for trying to search, though, +1 for effort.

    Would consider this as a front wheel only on my rigid SS.

    Anyone making a 2.7" or so 29er tire?

    2.5" ain't quite enough, 3" too much.

    those aren't for fatbikes. their for regular mtb 26/27.5/29. no 135/150 front wheel option and no 170/190 option. there's nothing stopping anyone from putting a 3.8 fattire on one. but it will be the similar to when all we had was 20mm rims for our 2.3 tires.

    This is a good candidate for the WTB trail boss 27.5x 2.8" tire. Should fit in most 29er frames front and rear.

    Huh, guess I'll have to take my Husker Du's off my 50mm rims and give up trail riding.

    I can not wait for these rims to be released. I currently run Marge Lites with a ghetto tubelss setup. Swapping over to the Hugo rims will save maybe 150 grams per since you dont need a rim strip or the split tube. We dont get much snow here and I ride the fat bike year round on mostly rocky single track with Husker Du up front and a H-Billie on the rear.

    But then all I would have left to ride is my old 20mm rims.

    Yeah, that seems kind of stupid of Stan to hype these up as great fatbike rims, then not offer them with proper fatbike hubs. I guess they just want to sell rims to the fatbike crowd. No biggie, I hear stans hubs suck anyways.

    I'm waiting for the Stan's 80mm version. As a Pugsley owner, I'm hoping they're drilled for offset builds.

    29+ in early October, followed by 26 and 27.5+ in late October. Just got off the phone with Stans.

    Exactly. 29er tire sizes seem to be jumping from 2.4 to 3.0. Personally, I'd like to try a true 2.55 or 2.6.

    I'm glad to see Stans doing a wider rim. I've been hoping they would come out with something in the area of 35mm internal. I know there are other companies making these, but my Flow Exs have been so flawless and trouble-free tubeless that I'd rather stick with Stans rims if possible.

    I liked all the Stan's rims I've used, but the new Light Bicycle 35mm carbon rims are even better tubeless - plus lighter and stiffer.
    Safe riding,

    Vikb,
    I'm running a set of Derbys on my Krampus and love them. So I don't have to search through another forum, can you post a link to the cross section of the light bikes rims? I'm curious about bead hooks(seem unnecessary to me now) and bead locks and how these rims compare in design to the Derby's. Thanks!

    Mine are the 35mm hookless 650B variety. 1 wrap of stan's tape and they setup tubeless better than any stan's rim or any other rim I have used. It's not hard to get the tires on/off the rim.

    When they make a 40mm wide 29er rim I'll be buying a set for the Krampus.

    BTW - had them built up locally and then didn't touch them for 5 months of rocky rooty riding on my 6" travel AM bike. Sent them to my wheel builder for a check up and he said they were still running 100% true and he only added a tiny bit of tension to each wheel.
    Safe riding,

    Has anyone heard an update on the Hugo 52 rim? I keep checking the NoTubes web site hoping that it is available. No luck yet.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    I tore down my 29" Dually wheels to rebuild with too-narrow Bontrager Mustang rims while I anxiously await the Hugo; That's how much I like the Dually tubeless setup.

    And that's for rim alone? I have no interest in their wheels, but definitely keen on a 29+ rim...

    I think it is funny the people who say these are not for fat bikes, yet Turner is putting them on the King Khan. :-)
    I can't wait to see them - I am planning on building a high end set of wheels next year and these will be considered but right now I am leaning towards Nextie...

    Stan's is responsible for some of the confusion. The description on their website is all about the fat, but the wheelsets are only offered with hubs that fit skinny bikes.

    I emailed light-bicycle last night. They sent me a cross section of the 50mm rims they are working on. They should be available in the coming months. No indication on the price though.

    Carbon or aluminum? Carbon is nice but way overpriced!

    They only make carbon products. Their 35mm Carbon rims are $180 USD, so I don't think they'll be too much more.

    I was just thinking that just maybe Stan's Notubes is dragging their feet because they waiting on their fat bike hubs to be made. (I'm hoping )

    I've got an availability date of mid February for rims. That's not a hard timeline, just what I heard from a distributor.

    There are reports on the Niner forum that the ROS9 Plus just started showing up and they are spec'd with Stan's Hugo wheels.

    Still waiting to see the new Hugo and Vee Trax Fatty in 27.5 on a fat bike!? I guess we won't see this combo until late winter / early spring when the snow is all gone and everyone is looking to ride fast in the dirt.
