    DT Swiss FR600 Rims? SR Inferno 31 Rims? any experience with them?

    Hi,
    Just building up a new heavy duty light weight wheel set.

    I was thinking about the ever faithful Mavic ex721 rim but I was curious about the DT Swiss fr600 and the Sun Ringle Inferno 31. I have been trying to find reviews but not luck with it...

    I know and like the ex721 but was looking for something wider.
    I know the DT rims were plaged with bad reviews about how easily they dent but the decription of FR600 says it has a stronger alloy. I haven't found any info about the Inferno 31 but I have a set with MTX and I like them (just too heavy)

    Inferno is lighter than ex721 and FR600 just 10 gr more.
    Please, do you have any experience with FR600 or Inferno 31?
    How these DT and SR rims compare to ex721 in strenght?

    I have experience with the Inferno 27 rims and they are very stiff, very high quality, and very easy to build...without being very high priced.

    The 25's are the same way, really great rims. Id imagine the whole lineup of infernos are excellent.

    Mavics are too heavy and too narrow. They're strong as hell, but thats mostly because of the high weight and narrow profiles.

    Does anyone know if you can run tubeless in the FR600?

    Hi have read in other forums about people running them tubeless with stans or similar without any problem, but I have not have any personal experience. I am quite inclined to give them a go but wanted to know first if the problems of easy denting are still there...
