    Nextie 38mm Asymmetric Carbon Wheel Build

    I've been wanting to build a set of wide and light carbon wheels. Ordered the Nextie 38mm asymmetric hoops. Used my original hubs from my P-TRX1 wheel set. Also upgraded to 48 star ratchet in the rear hub. Set them up tubeless.

    Carbon wheels is one of the best upgrades I have made to my bike! Traction is waaay better, faster acceleration and holy crap they are stiff. Each hoop weighs 3oz less than the originals. The bike accelerates better and floats over loose parts of the trail. I used to run 28psi. It was crazy hard with the carbon at that PSI. I now run 20-22psi. Please excuse the dirty bike.

    Nice looking build! I have the LB 38mm hoops, no offset. But they are super stiff and they give the tires so much poise, right? Makes the tires look super fat too. Nice work!

    Really makes a big difference and there is no downside that I can find. Wide wheels will be considered a must for my trail bikes in the future.

    I built up a set of the narrower 29er offset NXT29UL30's a couple years ago and they've been bombproof.

    I appreciate your feedback. The only worry for me is Iím a bit on the heavier sidebof things, 115kgs/255lbs rtr, I donít ride hard, I go easy on my bike but still do 2-3feet of drops here and there. For the chosen rims Nextie spced it can hold upto 160kgs/350lbs. Do you think my weight becomes an issue.

    I am just under 200 lbs. and ride hard over lots of rocky and rooty stuff (plus down staircases on weekly urban assault rides). Some of the folks that have checked out my wheel build trip out and think the rims are super light for what I'm riding.

    You shouldn't have any problem...

    Great! One thing though people say that the ERD on the website on these chinese carbon rims arenít exactly whatís listed on their website. Did you happen to measure yours before you laced them?
