    If you read the link, you now know as much as I do. Maybe ask your LBS to put in a query? Or try emailing WTB directly?

    The KOM i23 looks nice! It says that the CX offerings will be ready for the 2013 season, so hopefully they'll be released by late summer...

    WTB Frequency i23 AM wheelset: alternative to Flow rims

    4slomo, do you know how the new KOM i23s compare to the wheels you just built for me with the new WT69-alloy i23 rims?

    The cross section I saw of the KOM i23 shows it doesn't have the central "I" beam construction, so it will be lighter, but likely not as strong.

    WTB Frequency i23 AM wheelset: alternative to Flow rims

    Ok, thanks. I would rather opt for rim strength and a slight weight penalty.

    KOM i23 for the front, Frequency i23 for the rear -- looks like an intended combo to me.

    Are you sure this pic is the KOM? I thought it was the other pic with I-beam...

    WTB Frequency i23 AM wheelset: alternative to Flow rims

    I think the other rim picture with the i beam is the i25 and i19.

    Until he posted it, I did not see the ibeam-less rim picture. The caption says its the KOM TCS i23.

    I wonder if the loss of the I beam will be a huge deal. Stan's and Mavic don't use it...

    It's the caption in the article that's not good... I thought the version without I-Beam was for their CX rim but it does look on the wide side...

    We'll have to see for the effect of the I-Beam on stiffness but it was the reason I was considering it over the Pacenti TL28. Hopefully we can get our hands on them soon and get some feedback and reviews. Does anybody have an ETA?

    Regarding i23 weights again.. I've just weighed a pair of 26" Frequency i23, bought at CRC about 2 weeks ago. Both are 482 g.

    The last I heard from WTB was them telling me that they anticipate the new rims to arrive Fall 2013.

    The pic does say that's an I23, but that seems like a weak design for such a wide rim. Maybe for an i19 XC rim.

    I just started having my I23 wheels built up. There's always something better coming out next yr it seems. My set up will be lighter and wider than my current 819 set up.

    This is the caption below the picture on BikeRadar:

    "WTB lightens up for MY2014 with the new KOM TCS i23 tubeless-compatible mountain bike rims in 26", 27.5", and 29" diameters. Claimed weights range from just 385-426g with 23mm internal widths across the board."

    Arrrgh I was hoping for something wider and stronger than the I23. I'll be happy to try a build onto I25's this coming winter. I 23's have a thin sidewall to the bead, at least for me. Otherwise I love them.
    Cheers!

    Maybe look to some of the Pacenti rims? TL28 and DL31 are both wider than the I23s.

    Sorry, but you have given some misinformation here...

    Pacenti rims model numbers give outside width, the TL28 has an inside width of 23mm, same as the i23. In addition, the TL28 is designed to be a wide XC rim, which definitely is not stronger than the i23 AM rim.

    The DL31 has an inside width of 26mm. Predictably, it is a DH rim with an outside width of 31mm. Not sure if fermenter is really looking for a DH rim.
