    Velocity Blunt 29 Feedback?

    I have a pair of regular Blunt 29's that are a few years old. These are the 28mm rims and not the narrower SL.

    I see that Velocity has updated the Blunt to run better with tubeless.

    Currently running mine tubeless with the Bontrager tubeless strips.

    Rear rim has developed cracks at the eyelets.

    2 questions:

    1. Is the new Blunt the same ERD as the old rim? Do you still have to use the Bontrager strips?

    2. Should I make the switch to Arch Ex instead?

    190lbs rider on a SC Tallboy.

    Thx.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    1. The ERD is different. We at Velocity would recommend using our Velotape, but you can use Stan's tape as well.

    2. No.

    I'd definitely check out the Blunt SL if you want to go little lighter, or, if you're looking to go in the opposite direction, the Blunt 35 has been awesome for us.
