    Amazing rim weights. Edge's website claims 290 gms for the 29er tubulars. I wonder if the clincher version is also lighter than the claimed 380 gms.

    The real weight on Edge rims is usually 10g under the claimed weight.

    I'm surprised at the weight of the tires, which makes me wonder the value tubulars for mtb.
    I'm a big fan of tubulars on the road, but what advantage do they offer over a tubeless system? It almost seems a waste to have such a light wheel, and need to use heavy, by xc standards, tire. I've been running some variation of the Stan's system for ten years now, and have yet to burp a tire, even with pressures below 20 psi (at my heaviest, I'm 140 lbs), will the traction of a tubular be that much superior to merit the extra weight of the tire?
    Not snarky, curious.

    I suppose that is a decent, but not stupid light weight for a tire + ultralight tube, or tubeless tire + sealant and rim strip.

    The advantage would be that you could run them stupid low in pressure and get away with it, and still have a nice buttery ride with freakish traction.... in theory... That is if there are no problems with rolling the tire off the rim (glue failure). That is why all the cyclocross folks run tubulars, anyway.

    Bin the Geax and get yourself a couple of Dugast Rhino's!

    I agree with CB2. It does seem a bit of a waste, especially with those rims.

    he is a sponsorised rider, so only geax tires !
    By the way, they are really 2.2, not some skinny dugast (and i've seen the dugast for real)

    There are rumors of other light brands coming out with tubulars, we shall see...

    Hi guys,

    Thanks 20.100 for posting my wheels ;-)
    I'm just back from Cyprus racing on those wheels (dry conditions first week-end / very muddy the second week-end) and the Saguaro tubulars didn't let me down, I just had to adjust the pressure to race them in the mud (down to 1.3 bar in the front and 1.1 in the rear). No punctures for me while some other italian racers had punctures with Tufo tubbies (26"). Maybe I was just lucky or maybe the extra-weight is there for a reason : RELIABILITY. My vote goes for second guess ;-)

    Cheers,
    Pyf - http://pyfisracing.spaces.live.com/
