    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.
