    KOM l-23?

    Thinking of new wheels and maybe finally giving tubeless a go. Does anyone have experience building/riding the WTB KOM rim?

    I'm 175# and fairly easy on wheels, looking for a good light rim for 2.2-2.4 tires and mostly xc-ish riding. How do these stack up?

    I don't think these rims have been out long. I'm not even sure if they are available yet. Hopefully they are. They are definitely on my radar screen.

    I haven't seen these for sale anywhere yet. The only ETA I have seen is in UK for October 2014 lol.

    I've got a bike
    You can ride it if you like
    It's got a basket, a bell that rings
    and things to make it look good . . .

    According to cfrench, the KOMs won't be released in Scotland until Feb 2014.

    WTB I23/I25 rims

    I may go with the Frequency i23 or maybe a Stan's Arch EX or Pacenti TL28.

    Sweet! I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on these. I would appreciate any thoughts you have when you get them laced up and ridden.
