    Is it kind of odd that the Northpaw bike is an offset frame and this wheel is symmetrical only? I'm sure they'd do up a custom frame, but a Northpaw with the paragon sliders, set up single speed with these wheels...yummy. My single speed for next summer?

    A 29er version of this rim would be an alternative to a Rabbit Hole for a Krampus…..

    schlick has recently started making 170 mm spaced frames, called the Tatanka, these wheels were originally made for that bike, hergo 170 hubs. ill be getting some of these rims myself soon, but i probably wont ride them till next summer cause winter racin season is comin.

    I see...that's very good to know. Now the scheming begins.

    Personally I'm happy to see easily available 47mm rims, my head is still in the summer, and I'm dreaming of a superlight badaxe SS Fatbike. But you know what the Starks say...W.I.C.

    They look like an eyelet-less version of an Atomz trials rim. I wonder if there are any other differences besides the lack of eyelets.

    I just had a set of these laced up to some Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs for a mini-fat project on my Big Dummy. Pretty Sweet!

    I believe they can. I just ordered a wheel build from Schlick with these rims. I ordered mine symetrical, but it sounded like they can build em both ways, depending on which hubs you choose.



    Also, they were very cool to deal with over the phone. Can't wait for my wheels to arrive.

    Yep
    Cool cut outs.
    The important thing for me on fat rims is how they seat up and how well the tires hook into the bead.

    So, how do these wheels fare for bead seat interface.

    do they have any kind of ridge to retain bead?

    are the beads tight on rim?

    I also am most concerned about the tire/rim interface on a rim. I wish it was more standardized. Maybe eventually, there will be some nice tubeless ready lightweight double wall fat rims. I would like about a 50- 55mm width version of something like this:

    There's hardly anything "fatbike specific" about these rims :-), they're standard Taiwan-made trial rims which are branded and drilled with a different pattern by a whole number of trial brands. The Schlick cutout pattern is in fact the standard pattern: JETSET - PRODUCTS

    They seat 3.8" tires perfectly. Not quite so with 4.8" tires. You get them to seat, but it's not ideal.

    BTW, Jetset makes the rims for the On One Fatty too: JETSET - PRODUCTS
    They've got a number of (some pretty fancy) cutout patterns for OEM customers who want light(er) weights.

    As far as the rest of their offer, they've got a model that sits in between the two above, but it's not very light, even with cutouts, and has a definite "80ies" feel about it :-): JETSET - PRODUCTS

    They are very cool to work with too, good people. Off-set rims I believe they said are 60 days out, but coming. Got some on order.

    check these out for offset(64hole) 47mm light rims:
    Web Store - NW Trials

    they only have one black and one red rim left, so I ordered 2 silver ones. It seems like they have 8 silver ones left, or at least that's how many it lets me put in my cart.

    Ah, I should have ordered mine before I posted the link yesterday under the other topic. I was going to get black, but silver is alright too.

    These rims look great! I'm looking for some summer wheels to build up and these look like they'll be perfect - one issue though: Are these off-set only? I have a 907 bike, so I need symmetrical.

    Actually, they are symmetrical only as stated above, and 907 frames do come in offset and symmetrical.

    You guys are buying all my stock!! no complaints, that's for sure. I have more black rims coming in about 2-3 weeks. I have some silver left. and a red. I can also get them in gold if anybody is interested. Autodoctor, yours are boxed up. I'll have them out first thing tomorrow.
    I also have Because, Echo, and can special order Inpulse rims.

    Thanks. Just to be clear, I was asking if the NW trials Neon rims were symetrical?

    Neon rims are drilled 64h. I can't remember what the offset is but I built mine up symmetrical. Technically I think you could build them up offset thanks to the offset 64h drilling but the spoke beds are angled so half you nipples are not going to be sitting in the hole/bed at a very happy angle. I'm not sure if anyones tried it and reported back yet.

    I look at the rim again. The spoke beds are not directional. I haven't tried lacing them symmetrical though. Don't see why it wouldn't work. Correct me if I'm wrong. I'd like to know if any has tried it.

    That'd be pretty cool if it's true. From memory I was thinking the rim profile was not flat across the center but more of a shallow V shape and the holes were drilled perpendicular to the rim so if you put all your spokes in one side of the rim half of them would be pulling fairly square to the rim while the other half would be pulling at a weird angle.

    There are special nipples for harsh angles. DT calls their's Pro Head. They have a spherical contact surface that is more forgiving of higher angles.

    Has anyone set-up the Northpaw rims tubeless? Just wondering what was used for a rim strip?

    Paul hubs are US-Made super high quality, I have had several and have had zero issues. They are not the lightest option, but are not boat anchors either. check out the Paul site for weights and other information. The I9 freehubs they use are draggy, but you can remove three pawls to make them less so (at the expense of instant engagement).

    Total hijack from Schlick, but about these Neon trials rims over at the NWTrials site:

    1) has anyone built them asymmetrically who can chime in?
    2) Brian, do you know what the distance is between the two rows of spoke holes? How about the ERD? I want to plug the rim into Freespoke.

    Thanks!

    Nevermind. Dream is dead

    There is a hump through which the holes are drilled. The holes appear to be drilled straight down, but the nipple head will likely rest at an angle. Not sure, but it does not look promising from this pic.

    EDIT: I can stop the hijack now. Looks like the Neon has it's own thread. My apologies.
