    Scott's Alex XC-49 Disc, 32H 29er rim weight??

    I am curious if anyone out there has been curious enough to weigh a set of ALEXRIMS that come with a lot of Scott bikes in 2011-12? I would say with hubs for a total weight if possible. I have ordered the 29er Spark Elite coming to us in Switzerland in March 2012, and it seems like a light 29er for a FS bike, so I am really curious about those Alex weights

    I haven't disassembled the rear rim but the front rim weighs in at about 980.

    I just got both of my rims totally stripped and weighed the set at 2180 grams.

    Thanks Kolby. I upgraded to a DTSwiss all mountain rim deal my LBS gave me on my new Spark 29er
    elite though. Otherwise stock and I am luvin' it except for the saddle. I'll give it a bit more time before I upgrade.

    Scott's Alex rims

    Last night riding rocky technical trail I went OTB and slammed my rear rim on a large rock. Needless to say it won't totally true back up. Fist question, should I just ride it not true and then replace it when I damage it again? How out of true is too out to trust the rim? If I do replace the rim what is a good mildly priced upgrade to go with? By the way I just bought the 2012' Spark Elite two weeks ago.

    I would go to my bike shop and explain what happened. Maybe they can true it back? Or, See what your LBS can offer on trade in (if possible). For example, I got 38% of the price on a new Pair of DTSwiss All Mountain rims installed with the Alex's as trade-in but that was based on the original unused rim.
    Good luck.

    Osorio, thanks for the reply. My LBS is who could only get it close but not true. LBS suggested just ride it but It is out about an 1/8". I think I am going to get a new rim and have it laced with the stock hub and spokes if possible. What DT swiss is the all mountain you went with? When I look at DT Swis they always have model numbers, couldn't find "all Mount."

    Been away on vacation vtfr. I think my All mountain DT Swiss are the 1800 series weigh about 1850 for the pair with DTSwiss hubs. I hear a lot of good things about Stans Arch rims. Put pressure on you LBS for some sort of a trade in deal. Good luck
