    650b wheelsets - who's using what??

    Okay I know there are a lot of you guys using the Stans rims, and the Blunt rims,

    But who's running something different?

    Anyone running the Alex Rims 650b offering?

    Anyone running something from Weinmann?

    What about the Sun Equalizers? Who's rocking those?

    Whatcha running and how are they working out for you?

    Thanks!

    Mark

    Velocity Synergy on Hope (front) and Surly SS (rear) hubs. Working great, but I do have my eyes on the new Velocity Dyad rims. Thinking about a King/Dyad wheelset.

    Weinmann Discovery...I *might* ride my Beasley first time this weekend since suffering a concussion kept me off the bike that I ordered. It was the worst timing ever, I ordered the bike and got a ski accident, no biking for 7 weeks.. Monday was the last day that I was prohibited from riding, so I wil probably ride this weekend depending on the trail conditions. We are supposed to get heavy thunderstorms and high wind tonight through tomorrow so trail conditions may still suck.

    I'm running the Alex Rims XD-Lite's laced to Shimano Hubs. Fantastic so far, I've had 'em about 4 months and nary an issue with them. Had 'em built up by Chad at Red Barn. Quality Build!

    Those look sharp!!! How was tire installation with them - nice and snug and secure?

    WTB Laserdisk something-or-others. I guess I could look at my original thread?

    WTB hubs and Neo-Motos.

    Tire fit was pretty tight, meaning good.

    No problems since accept a little truing.

    I wish my wheels were lighter and my rims wider, but I'm doing just fine. I can still dream can't I?

    Sorry MM, didnt' see the reply until today. Yeah install was easy with just one lever needed at the end, feels very secure. Running about 32 psi (I'm 225 or so) and no issues.
