    Hey PauLCa916,

    I was thinking of ordering those same rims from light bike. Are they any good?
    Also what size hubs did you get and from where?

    I haven't had a chance to ride them on any serious trails yet rode them around the neighbor hood after airing them up felt pretty firm but they had 35 psi in front and rear.
    I will get back and report after I drop the air pressure to normal 25 psi rear and 20 psi front and hit some single track.
    As far as how good they are according to the (Cheap) Chinese Carbon Rims Thread here on MTBR they seem to be very well built.
    (Cheap) Chinese Carbon Rims?
    As far as Hub's I'm running Chris King ISO 28 hole front 9 mm T.A and rear 10 x 135 QR.
    Bought them from a a guy online new.

    New seat, grips and stem

    Already switched the tires (2.3 Ground Control front, 2.0 The Captain rear, both tubeless and Control casing), EC90 seatpost, EC70 720 mm flat bar and added 2 carbon rib cages and S.W.A.T. mini tool. The new stem is an 80mm x 6 degree rise Kalloy Uno "6", the grips are Vans ODI Lock on, the seat is a 155mm Specialized Romin Expert Evo. Oh yeah, switched the brake pads to 7.1 performance compound. Now it is set up right for Colorado singletrack!

    Added an Easton EC70 seatpost to get rid of the creaking/crackling from the oem unit. I did like the quality of the Spec seatpost; too bad it made too much noise. The Easton is sweet and silent. The s/p collar is Fourier's and it rocks.
    Please donate to IMBA or your local IMBA chapter. It's trail karma.

    After riding these LB carbon rims a bit I'm very pleased with the purchase.
    Bike tracks better especially in the corners.
    Even climbing they seem better.
    As far as durability so far after hitting some rock gardens pretty sloppy I must say.
    I just took them to my LBS and had him check them out and they are still true and tension is fine.

    Just recently changed out the stock Specialized 105 mm stock stem to a Thomson 70 mm 0 rise stem.
    Couldn't believe what a difference it made still getting use to it.

    Another update on my Stumpy. Finally finished the conversion to Evo spec and it now has 150mm of travel front and rear. The Pike is such a huge upgrade over stock. Turned my Stumpy into a monster truck, just goes through everything. Absolutely love this bike.

    Well, another update, probably the last on this bike (at least until those new WTB carbon rims are available!). Swapped the drivetrain to full XT, a 32T Narrow Wide from Raceface, KMC X10 gold chain, E13 Turbocharger, and the 42T and Rad Cage from One Up Components. Mid swap I spent a couple hours cleaning the bike and touching up the chips in the paint, so it gets to sit on some carpet until the next ride. Love this bike!

    I took a rattle can of matte black Krylon Fusion and sprayed some on a paper plate before applying some with a q-tip. Turned out really well, you have to be looking really closely to identify where the chips and scrapes were.
