    28 hole 29'er rims

    I have a sweet set of DT 240S 28 hole hubs that I'm itching to build up a nice set of wheels with. The problem is I am having a difficult time finding a set of rims. The Bontragers are impossible to get and I'm not into the "fit" of Stan's rims and most tires. Any good ideas out there?

    Which would be sweet. Just a bit out of the price range at the moment...

    i have the edge 32 hole wheelset and they are stiff. i would think that a 28 hole version might have too much spoke windup during braking and hard pedaling..

    aluminum rims might be too flimsy unless you are 145lbs or lighter.

    I've got the opposite problem. A set of 28 hole Rhythm/Duster rims 28H with no hubs! Still need to track down a nice set of 28H disc hubs for those.

    you would think wrong. You could run those rims with 24 spokes and not have any issues

    you don't like the fact that stan's rims work extremely well with an extremely wide variety of tires?

    there's a reason why arches and flows are so common on high-end 29er custom builds. long list of good tires that mount easily and work reliably.

    I think what he was talking about is the fact that the new rim profile is a ***** to mount tires. Oh and not everybody cares about running their tires sans tubes, myself included.

    I know the Velocity Blunts come in a 28h version because I was accidentally sent one when I needed a 32h version

    What about the "new rim profile?" I have several sets of Arches and Flows and they are outstanding wheels and easy to mount tires on. For me they are the best rims I have every found. The Edge's might be better, but at a zillion times the cost.

    did an online direct bike seller buy Stans?

    I shouldn't have put it that way, sorry, the OP was asking for alternates, not to defend his opinion.

    The new Stan's profile is a straight ***** to get tires on. It took me forever to get a Geax mounted. I hope I do not have a flat. It may be faster to walk out, then change the tire.

    You can get a Sun EQ 23 in a 28 hole rim.

    I assume you guys mean the Crest? I measured the BSD of a 29er Crest at 626mm, 4mm larger than the 622 ISO size printed on the sticker. They may be pushing it a bit, but many people don't seem to have problems. Geax + stan's don't seem to play well, particularly UST/TNT

    Thanks everyone. There are at least two rims I haven't thought of and I appreciate the help.
    For those of you that want to debate the Stan's tire fitting.. Go At It!

    Thanks
