    Rims or wheelset ? What hubs and spokes are you using?

    I just ordered rims. I like to have my wheels built locally by people I know.

    I've got some Hope hubs waiting for them. I haven't decided on spokes at this point. I won't go with anything unusual though.

    I have the 23mm Inside diameter LB AM rim With beadhooks. Build it With Sapin D-lights and Tune King&Kong hubs. Total 1480g. Really easy To build and has been holding up fine So far.

    I have only good Things To say about the rims.

    Yep mine should be here mid Feb...

    I think they have their build process pretty sorted now as I haven't seen any recent horror stories especially with the 650B's

    I have a set - been on them for ~3 weeks. Early days obviously, but so far I could not be happier with them. Quality looks excellent. Bought 4 rims along with a friend and weight came in at ~390-420 per rim which was a little under the 430 I was told they would be (bonus). Built them up into a 1500g wheelset which is fantastic. As far as the ride goes, it is my 2nd set of LB rims (one previous set of 29"), and I've owned Easton Haven carbon wheels, and they have that same solid, tough as fu@k, feel about them. I put good size tires on them - 2.35 Schwalbes front and rear, am running low pressures, and its a great set-up.
