    29" Sun-Ringle Rhyno Lite XL on 36h XT hubs

    I could use a little help trying to find the least expensive (most cost effective?) source in the US for the following wheelset:
    • 29"
    • [s]Rhyno Lite XL[/s] - NOT AVAILABLE. Damn.
    • 36h XT hubs (black)
    • Straight gauge spokes

    - OR -
    • 29"
    • Kris Holm 29r Unicycle Rim
    • 36h XT hubs (black)
    • Straight gauge spokes

    Thanks!

    Really? The XLs or the KH? Hell, I just picked up my BB7s from there today (after a quick stop at Mississippi Pizza...).

    The last time I looked, UC didn't have the Rhyno Lite XL in 29er flavor, just the Lite. I'll take another look. Thanks!

    ahh...sorry, missed the XL part, but they do have the KH and you can build them up for $229

    BTW...love Mississippi Pizza and my front door is from the Re-Use-It center across the street

    No problem at all. And, yeah, Mississippi Pizza rocks. I walked through Re-Use-It today as well... I was hoping the rain would clear up before I had to get back on the motorcycle.

    I just went to the UC website to see what my options may be; the best pricing I could get is $236. How did you get the Rhyno Lite Wheelset down to $216? Are you using a coupon code?

    Here's the summary of parts I spec'd:

    • Front Rims Sun Rhyno Lite Rim - 29/700 x 36 Hole Black
    • Front Hubs Shimano HB-M756 XT Front Disc Hub - Black 36h - 100mm Spacing

    • Rear Rims Sun Rhyno Lite Rim - 29/700 x 36 Hole Black
    • Rear Hubs Shimano FH-M756 XT Rear Disc Hub - Black 36 - 135mm Spacing


    • Nipples Brass Nipples - Silver 12mm


    • Spokes DT Swiss Champion Spokes - 2.0mm Black


    Your Total: $236.38

    So, it turns out that I'm a total moron. The Sun Ringle doesn't appear to even make the XL in the 29er version:

    Looking for strong 29er wheels....

    http://www.sun-ringle.com/contentpag...reeridedh.php5

    SIZES:
    507mm, 559mm

    E.R.D.:
    493, 548

    WEIGHT:
    512g, 565g

    HOLE COUNTS:
    32, 36

    COLORS:
    BLACK

    WIDTH:
    29.2mm




    I've also been informed that I should probably pass on the Mavic TN719. The Salsa Gordos are too expensive thanks to my current bout with unemployment, so it looks as if I'll be focused on either the Kris Holm 29" Unicycle Rim (which is currently out of stock @ Universal) or go with the pinned S-R Rhyno Lite 29er rims.

    So...

    • 29"
    • Kris Holm 29r Unicycle Rim
    • 36h XT hubs (black)
    • Straight gauge spokes

    Nothing wrong with the pinned Rhyno Lite.

    There is a new Holm rim coming out. The old version may be gone.

    Hey Shiggy, thanks for responding.

    The Kris Holm rims do indeed seem to be in short supply, but I'll keep my eyee open. Would you agree that the Mavic TN719 is not an optimal choice for a clyde - at least in a the low-cost category?

    Yikes, when did Kris Holm rims jump up to $80? I seem to remember paying a lot less for mine... in 2007.

    Any reason to go with KH rims instead of Salsa Gordos now?

    Well Gordo's are over $100 each, so there is still a price difference

    Fwiw

    I'm been riding the Mavic TN719's for a year now, and so far, so good. I like them much better than the DT's I had previously.

    Sorry to bring back this thread, but, i need a question answered.

    How do you know what width to get regarding hubs? I'm looking to get a wheelset for my large self (290lbs) and have an Intense Spider 29. Can you advise?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Depends on the dropouts you have. You may need to know more than just the hub width. Call Intense.

    Called Intense and spoke with the personal there. I need a 135mm rear and a 110 front they said anything in that size will fit. Cool!

    Hmmmm.... When I go to http://www.universalcycles.com/wheelkit_new.php the 110mm front hubs dont seem like the correct ones for my fork..... Is the front width as simple as getting a caliper reading for the front hub thats in there?
