    Syncros DP25 or DS28, Help! Shiggy

    I'm considering having a pair of these laced up but can't decide which one to get. Currently I'm using VXCs with no problems, but 2.35 tires seem kind of pinched on them. I weigh 192 and want a tough wide rim, but don't want a lot of extra unecessary weight either. The DP25 is only 1.5 mm wider than what I'm using now. I use a BG 2.35 up front and a 2.1 Nevegal in the rear. Also what do you think of Supercomp spokes and allow nipples with one of these? (I currently use allow nipples with no problems so far.)
    Want to ride in this life and the next? Ask me how.

    I am using a DS28 up front with Supercomps and brass nips laced to a hope Bulb hub and it wieghed in at 934.11g. I run 2.35 and 2.5 BG and Nevagals on it and I really like it so far. You could maybe go brass for the disc side and alloy on the other to cut a few more grams but I prefer the brass.
    Nothing to see here.

    DP25 should be ok with 2.35, but nothing bigger.
    I had to return my front wheel and get SingleTrack instead to run 2.5.

    depends on how you look at it.......does 60grams more for the wheelset matter to you? If not, I see absolutely no reason to not go with the DS28 rims.....they are off the shizzle

    Of course that depends on the specific model of tire.
    A Schwable Big Betty 2.4 is bigger than a Nokian Gazzaloddi 2.6.
    A Kenda Nevegal 2.10 is bigger than a Conti Vertical Pro 2.3.
    Panaracer Fire FR 2.4 is bigger than a Panaracer Megablaster 2.5.

    I use all of these on 22-28 mm wide rims.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
