    29er tubular rims

    I am looking for tubular rims either aluminium or carbon, preferably wider then 20mm and 32 spokes.

    Any options besides Edge (too expensive), or a road rim (too narrow, mostly low spoke count)?

    Actually a good old Mavic Reflex tubular rim works quit nice. They are in 32 hole, light, and wider that most road rims. You should be able to glue a 45 or 47mm Dugast or FMB up no problem on them.

    Ambrosio Nemesis road rim would work as well.

    I think Ambrosio is making some MTB specific tubular rims too, as is FRM (but not in 29").

    I think I will go with the reflex, decent weight 375g, nice price (less then 50 euro), easliy available.

    Ambrosio has an alu rim as well, 430g, 24mm wide, 60 euro.

    The FRM will be too expensive (around 110 euro, 390g target)

    man, I wish I had seen this stuff before I sold my bulls eye hubs. These would have been perfect for a build because all the local trails are closed when they get wet, they see lots of traffic & wet trails get torn up in a hurry.

    Can I get a link to the ambrosio 24mm wide rims? The widest ones I can come across are 430 grams & 21mm wide.
