    Tubeless rims

    I am contemplating buying used tubeless rims, but not savvy enough to know where to start. Will any fit my bike? I have a 2009 giant trance 3 x 9 with a formula hub.

    What size are your current tires? What size tires do you plan on running tubeless?
    I race XC with a 2005 Raleigh M80. Yes, I really do.

    Stans no tubes has some of the widest variety currently but like HotelBravo26 is saying which you pick depends on your tires. Any modern shimano style freehub (not 12 speed of course) can be made to fit 9 speed if you're looking at buying complete wheels and not just rims. Have a look on ebay as well since lots of people are still selling off their "obsolete" 26 inch stuff.

    This combo sounds like a winner, relatively light, sturdy, and reliable. All for a decent price. Can't custom build them for $100 more than that. I'd go for it.

    Agreed seems like pretty good option. I have 21mm internal stans rims on my bike and they've treated me well with 2.2 tires wrapped around them. Mine were laced up for more than that by my lbs so its a fair price.

    Where did you find those rims? I'm shopping for a new wheelset for my son's 26er.

    I believe that is correct. Just used a basic Google search.

    I am running a 12 speed SRAM NX setup with my standard 8/9/10 Shimano free hub. SunRace makes a Shimano compatible 12 speed platter as well. So, if you are looking to stay 9 speed and wish to expand to a 1x12 later, you certainly can.
