    Not as "blingy" as some on here, but I'm still happy with the wheels I just had built up. 29er LB carbon XC rims, Hope Pro 2 EVO hubs (including the new 40T rear), Sapim CX-Ray spokes, and Sapim 12mm brass nipples. Everything is black ... very understated.

    Wheel weights are 755 grams for the front and 886 grams for the rear ... the total wheelset weight comes to 1,641 grams.

    I'm pretty happy at this point and can't wait to get some tires mounted up so I can take them on their first ride.

    Anti-bling?

    Dirty I9s, dirty Cx-Rays, dirty ENVEs. No idea about the weight. I've never felt the need to weigh them.

    Red Chris King ISO hubs with steel drive upgrade, Stan's Flow 29er, DT Swiss SuperComp spokes, and alternating silver/red DT swiss nipples. With the most crappy ass $25 tire possible. Tubeless.

    Probably the most ill fitting wheel set for my XC 29er, but I like the wider profile and bulletproof durability.

    I have the same wheels but 27.5. I love mine. Got them from wheelbuilder.com. I also could care less what they weigh.

    This probably doesn't count because I'm using less expensive BHS hubs but it was my first wheel build and I am proud of them. Plus I got this cool shot of them on the trail today. The whole 26" wheel build for front and rear was less that $200. I think they do bling though:

    Sure. I read this after I order a set of KOM's and Hadley's. Did you find the CX RAYS to be a worthy upgrade?

    I don't even want to know how much you want for them, actually I do.

    White Industries hubs, Wheelsmith spokes and nipples, Dually rims. 100% made in the USA.


    NOX rims, Hope hubs, Revolution spokes and alloy nipples.


    I9 Torch Classic hubs, Stan's rims.


    More on my FB page, I'll post some more of them here later tonight.

    EDIT: one more quicky. Not that 'blingy' really, but kinda cool looking. Shimano XT hubs, Flow EX rims, 36 white DT Swiss Competition spokes. Built for a big guy looking to get back in shape. I don't build with white spokes anymore, so don't ask!

    Are any of you guys using anodized nipples over 200lbs? Have you had any problems with the aluminum nipples?
