    First part to show up....



    Still deciding on rims.... with a 20mm TA my choices are limited. I was looking at Cobalt or Mavic ST but no go on those.... So now DT Swiss 1750's, Stan's Flow or Iodine 3 (but 2.1's don't fit) so I'd have to move to 2.3's..... The DT's only come in white....not real complimentary with a raw frame. Any rims I should look at that are light, can accept a 20mm front TA and 142/12mm rear TA?

    I'd say why not build yours ?

    Get the hubs you like and the rims that fit the bill. Than do a quick math and buy the right length of spokes. Than bring everything in at your LBS and ask them to build them up. Mine charge about $30 per wheel build. Or build them yourself and after a few miles get them to your lbs and have them tensioned right.

    That's a nice frame you just got

    Second. Go with regular hubs, spoke and hoops. You can easily build them just as light, and you'll be thankful when you break a spoke and can pick one up at ANY bike shop.

    Stans Flows have worked great for me.

    If they're not telling you what spokes, count, lacing pattern and what nipples they use - it's probably because they're not worth advertising.

    Just saying. The difference between a decent wheel and a great wheel is in the details.

    Ya ya.....gotta be my idea...lol

    Now I've got another problem....coming home my Foes fell over on the top of the truck still strapped on the rear tire but the front fort area that cradles the QR chipped a piece off...so now I've got nothing to ride...and in order to get the old Foes backup I need to replace the old Talas shock. Not sure if Fox will give me a crash replacement or not with the chip being on it.... not sure how it happened everything was locked down tightly and we hit nothing....weird and costly.... kinda bummed case no bike and now I've got to spend $$ on the old bike instead of the new one to get riding again.....
