    summer wheelset

    currently riding a moonlander

    i have an old set of BFL's i want to mount tubeless on another set of rims for faster light trail and gravel path riding for the warm weather

    what rim would work well a a good price point.
    would even consider different tire.

    thanks

    3.8 Marge Lites for sure for summer! Knard or HuDu is also seconded by me. The 120tpi's are noticeably more supple than the 60tpi's; so much that the 60tpi Nate my second Pugs came with I sold immediately for a 120tpi because I was familiar with the 120tpi and really disliked the 60 after that.

    27tpi, not 60tpi. There are no 60tpi Surly tires

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    For gravel riding and light trail duty bfl's do a great job. Fairly light and super fast, still my go to summer tire until conditions get ucky.

    You need any rim with 18..22 mm offset for moonlander.

    It is only clownshoe rim. Not choice

    Not to even get further off topic but if somebody is saying something why does said person have to say "just sayin" because we already know you are saying it.

    Somebody is selling a Moonlander with an extra set of Northpaw wheels on `FB on the Fat Bike trader. Maybe a person could get him to sell just the extra wheels.
