    My Santa Cruz V10 Carbon!



    I have some custom Dorado decals being made up, relacing with Flow EXs, and maybe swapping to XTR Trail brakes.

    Weight is 36lbs flat as it sits.

    Wow, nice bike! I have a nomadc that I pretend is my mini v10. Have you seen the spank spike evo 35al rims? 35mm wide 29.5 internal width and about 100g more than the flows you want. Do you think the flows would stand up to the abuse you will put that bike through? Seriously asking because I have been thinking of switching my DT ex500 rims out to the spanks but maybe the flows will be strong enough for me. The flow ex's internal width is right between the ex500 and spike 35, with even less weight than my DT. Decisions, decisions...

    not sure about the Flow EX rims durability. i have heard mostly positive things, albeit, also a couple negative reviews. I am 180lbs, Cat 2 racer, not really much of a basher. I do crash occasionally, but I've throttled back my riding since having adult responsibilities (house, mortgage, job, kids, etc.) I go thru about 2 rims a season. The Flow EXs should allow me to run tubeless easier and have a better tire profile due to the width than the EX721s.

    Take a look at the WTB i23's . . . I'm running them on my AM rig and I bash the hell out of them. Have only dented one sidewall (from running too low a PSI) and it still held air and they have never needed truing since building them. The guy who laced em up thinks that these i23's are superior to the Flow's and equally as light.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!
