wtb laser tcs trail rim.
Are looking at a set of these to replace some old 719 rims on the ht. Weight, width and price seem good but have yet to find anyone using them.
So are they good bad or just plain ugly? What say you mtbr?
I am using laser tcs xc, only done 2 rides with bronson tyres, tubeless.
Nice wheels, the tubeless setup is flawless.
No opinion on durability.
WTB is replacing these with Frequency line, so the 21mm internal width is discontinued, they will only have I19, 199mm, and I23, 23mm inner width.
so get the rims now if you want 21mm inner width.
Honestly they should be good.
I own another Speedisc built wheel, and after being re-trued by a mechanic, it is flawless after 2 years. speeddisc should be lower end than laserdisc and laser tcs.
I just built up a set of the lazer tcs all mountain race rims on a set of ck hubs with dt comps.
They replaced a set of flows on hopes with dt comps.
So far i only have about 5 rides on them as i only built them up 2 weeks ago but i am really liking them.
Much stiffer than the flows due to higher spoke tension.
The wheels came out to about 1840 grams which is about 50g lighter than my flows but i swear i can feel the difference.
No long term report on durability yet but they have held up under my 300lbs and as i said feel stiffer than my flows did.
I notice less flex when cornering hard and especially when doing technical off camber climbs.
I used to feel my flows flexing as if my tire was low under those situations.
Will report back after more use.
Oh yea.....they were the easiest wheel i have ever built to date.
Went together fast and tensioned up quick.
Must have been the eyelets.

Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.
I've got a pair of laser TCS XC's snappy and stiff, light weight laced to CK rear and a DT swiss front, but as far as durability goes, they need to be treated fairly gently. i've put a pretty nasty dent in my rear rim, what's amazing is the finish is unmolested, not sure how i did it, but it knocked the wheel out of true and pushed the rim bead in about 1/8" or more.
Wish they were just a bit stronger, but i do love the light weight, They are by far the lightest set of wheels i have ever owned and I'm having a tough time deciding if i want to buy a heavier set of wheels to take the abuse, or just stop leaving the ground when i ride. highly recommended for the ride quality, not for big guys or heavy hitters though.
