    Stans ZTR Flow vs Spank Subrosa

    Hi everyone,

    I have the option of running either ZTR Flow rims or the new version of the Subrosas this year.

    The rims will be laced to Hope Pro II's and will be run on a downhill bike for racing, and park abuse.

    I am pretty good with my wheelsets - haven't ever had any serious damage on any of my wheels.

    Looking for opinions on which you would run and why. The ZTR Flows are 50g lighter per rim, but I don't know enough about the new Subrosas to know which of the two would be stronger.

    Any advice or suggestions would be great.

    I'd like to try tubeless actually. My only concern is that the Flows apparently don't play well with Maxxis Minion DHF's (from what I read anyway).

    Flows and Minions

    The Flow Minion combo is working great for me.

    Ya, non UST. Minion DHF 3C EXO no problems. Just yellow tape and Stan's sealant. I double rap the rims with the yellow tape.
