    Amercian classic 101 over stans crest

    After ordering some crest rims to lace up and then finding out 2 weeks later with no response from stans they were out of stock I did some research and found these American classic 101 rims.

    They weighed 355 on the nose each and are rated for 210 lbs.

    101 RIMS|26 / 650B / 29

    Retail is 99.00 each but my lbs sold them to me for less.

    The guys at American classic were awesome to deal with.

    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    Damn I thought I was gonna read somewhat of a true comparison between the two but it ended up just being a rant. Sucks you had a bad experience but at least shed some light on the product. I am looking at the 101's and arch Ex. Word on the street is that the 101's are just as stiff as an arch ex but comes out lighter than a crest. If that's true then I'll pick up the 101's

    I rode them today and they were very stiff. I had crests on my 29er and they were flexy. Yes this is a smaller rim but it honestly felt as stiff as the flow ex I just took off. Same hubs and spokes just different rims. And they were a lot lighter than the flows. My buddy who has been a pro mechanic for 20 years said the inside design was better than the stans.

    What are the spoke tension limits for the 101 rim? What did you use for the dish on the rear drive side and non drive.
