    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Correct :-) we have two on order down here in Australia & they're expected to arrive before the end of November (possibly earlier). The complete bikes including the Hugo's started shipping a few days ago & should arrive on our shores this week. Waiting impatiently .....................

    FWIW, I just received a box of Hugo's in 26, 650b, and 29".

    Cool rims. Looking forward to seeing what they bring to the mid-fat experience.

    Well, that's a nice surprise. Got any +size tires to go with the 27.5s?

    Hey mikesee. Can you give us a measurement of the width of some of your 29+ tires on the Hugo's when you have a chance. I want to make sure they will fit in my fork before I order them.

    I'd love to, but I have no plans to lace these for myself. Just not enough to go around at the moment, and it's fatbike season here. Come spring when I have lots more Hugo's on the shelf, and the season is ripe, I'd love to help.

    I wonder if they're going to do these in white like the rest of their mountain rims at some point?

    What's the latest with the 29er tire selection in the 2.7" range?

    I've been out of the loop on this end to mtb lately, so forgive me if this has been covered.

    I think the folks at NoTubes are smoking cheese if they think a 52mm rim with a fancy looking bead interface is going to somehow take the place of a much wider rim. Initial interviews, press releases, and website blurbs seemed to indicate that that was, indeed, what they were thinking.

    Other than that? Nice rims. If I needed a 52mm rim for a specific project or purpose these'd be at the top of my list.

    To me it appears if they were/are anticipating a large release of 29+ bikes and tires. But I really don't see 29+ gaining much steam for a few years, much like fat bikes have.

    IMHO they done phucked up by releasing 29+ before 26" 80(ish)mm rims.

    What would be the best purpose/usage for these rims, in your experience?

    Seems like it could be a sweet width both for 27.5+ and 29+.

    I have a set of 29's laced up to one Hope hub, and one Dynamo hub. I am using the Surly Knard tires for now. On my ECR, I ran the front at 10 psi, but bottomed out the tire on the rim several times while riding Broken Arrow in Sedona. I put a few strokes of the hand pump in and made it back to Bike and Bean without it happening again. The rear was at 15 psi all day with no issues. The Knards were very hard to get seated. I had to use stans in the tire, compressor, and lots of soapy water to get them to mount. Each one took about 2-3 minutes on the compressor to catch and inflate. Maybe the Chronicles will go a little easier. FWIW, Light-Bicycle.com sent me an email this morning. They are taking pre orders for their carbon 50mm rims. 500g, $210 each.

    Would you please post a measured ERD for the 650b size?

    Also, how do you account for the alternating, offset spokes when you calculate spoke length?

    Hi cseistrup. Can you do me a favour and measure the width of the knard on the hugo? I am keen on these wheels but want to know they will fit before ordering. Bummer about the setup difficulty given the claims about their design.

    Cheers

    Maybe it is more of a tire issue than a rim issue?

    Hopefully so.

    Also I find it interesting that Stans or no one else has mentioned that you need special valves for these rims. The standard presta tubeless valves will not work as the valve hole is too big. Stans is using a Schrader type tubeless valve.

    If that's the case that is bad news- Have a Lezyne large volume floor pump with an aftermarket dedicated presta head.

    Those things work well? Dont know anyone who uses them. That's a Lot of leverage to put on the base of the schrader.

    The presta valve stays in plays on tubeless with a threaded nut. What keeps the schrader valve in place? Is it metal and threaded like a presta valve, or is it some press-fit design?
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    I didn't like the Schrader valve on the Hugo so I changed it to an American Classic Presta valve with some adapters we dug up, QBP has them.
    I put Chronicles on last night and I've never had a tire set up tubeless so easy. I used a compressor with the valve core installed and it beaded up in no time and didn't leak...anywhere, right off the bat. I had a Knard and a 2.35 Ikon (2.7 on the Hugo) on previously and they were almost as easy

    Here's a Knard and Hugo, the Maxxis still fits my 2012 Fox Fork

    How did the Ikon look on the Hugo? Don't they recommend tires 2.5" and wider for that rim? I ask because I am building up a 29+ rig and was looking at the Hugo's, but I'd also like to be able to run normal 29" tires as well on the same wheels/bike.

    The Ikon 2.4 is a very large 2.4. It measured 2.7-something on a 50mm rim. It shouldn't be a problem.

    That's the valve solution I'll use. Great. Ikon 2.35 measures at 2.7 on the Hugo? Really?

    Here's a pic of the Ikon on the Hugo, I put it on until I got my hands on some Chronical's. I did a 64 mile ride on the Ikon and it had great traction but seemed to roll a little slow, I think it was a little too wide on the Hugo and there were too many knobs touching the ground

    Good to hear Stans is going with Schrader valves, with a threaded base ring I assume like my 909s. Take the core out and your compressor or floor pump will seat any tire. Curious why you switched back to presta?

    Every bike I have is Presta, my pumps are Presta and to top it off the round lock nut on the Schrader broke when I was tightening it.
    When I mounted the Chronicle on the Hugo they were sucked down like they were in a vacuum (before I put any air in), I think I could seat them with a minipump. It seriously took about five seconds with a compressor with the presta

    A bump for this question (and a bit more)

    What ERD (for 29) and spoke bed offset have people been using?

    Many thanks

    Summer/hardpack use for 3.8" tires.

    I prefer ~35-40mm rims for 29+.

    So you recommend the Derby rims for 29+ builds? Are there any other rims that fit that range on the market right now?

    I like Derby's a lot for 29+. That's what I'm running on mine.

    Nextie, Light-Bicycle, and all the other less-known chinese carbon guys are making 30, 35, 40, and 50mm carbon rims these days. Plus the Velocity Blunt 35's if you're OK with aluminum and a chunk of money saved over carbon.

    Mike what do you think is the optimum internal width for 29er tires in the 2.3-2.5" width if someone is looking for taking a bite out of riding rigid?

    So many variables. Which tires, ridden where, by whom, on what kind of trails, with what riding style, on which frame, which fork, etc...

    I think carbon rims (except for ENVE) smooth a lot of the buzz that rigid transmits. If I were riding rigid in my backyard, I'd want a TLR tire (like a Maxxis Ardent or HRII or DHF) on a 30mm internal carbon rim, run at ~16 or 17psi. And I'd start saving my pennies for a nice squishy fork...

    Thanks! I've got a p35 back there now, but it's a heavy beast and I'm torn between the derby, nextie 40mm, dually and hugo...

    A squishy fork will have to come with a new bike, I've got a nice squishy fatty on the front of my Jones (which will eventually get a carbon fat rim), right now it's my tailbone that I'm more interested in!

    All of the above have been good. Just depends on how much you want to spend, and what your expectations are.

    Possible durability issue of these rims with the flatter profile. I believe the flatter profile makes them easier to bend from rock strikes and such. A pic form a buddy of mine on his fat bike from a Sedona ride. He generally runs 8-9 psi in his tires.

    Thanks for posting this, as I have been wondering the exact same thing myself.

    The Dually and the WTB Scraper i45 are constructed more like a traditional rim and I think they'll be better for B+/29+ trail use.

    looking for feedback....


    considering either converting the rabbit hole rims on my krampus to split tube tubeless or going with a new wheelset. looking to drop some weight off the bike and give SS a try. Would the Hugo be worth the expense? seems like i might be able to lose about 2 lbs vs the RH set up tubeless?

    also considering the Jungle fox rims from nextie but am weary of running carbon rims on our rocky texas hill country trails.

    any help is appreciated!

    Looks like Hugo and Helga are not playing nice together. I will presume he was tubeless. I am curious if a short sidewall is more vulnerable. I have destroyed at least 5 or six fat rims, not fun.

    Why someone would choose to run fat tires at ~8psi on Sedona-esque trails is beyond me. That's virtually begging for dented rims.

    Stop the insanity, please. Fat tires are awesome, and they have a place (several, actually), but desert hardpack and rock are emphatically not it.
