    New whitewalls for the singlespeed

    Late last year I posted a message about how I cracked the rear rim on my Bianchi Rita. I have since replaced the silver Velocity wheels with some white Stans Flows (same hubs...just rebuilt with new rims).

    I realized that I never put up any photos of the result. Well, here it is...


    Thx...Doug

    Velocity Blunt. Split it right at the seam/weld when I nailed a rock and pinch flatted. I opted to go with Stans Flows as a replacement since they work 10x better for tubeless applications.

    Curious as I am building up some blunt race wheels. I'm a luddite and still run tubes...and sans suspension, so hopefully they hold up. Good job on the hill today. -rhino

    The Blunts are crazy wide inside (~24mm), so I *really* liked how my tires filled out when mounted to them. What I didn't like about the Blunts was that it was a *beatch* to convert to tubeless, as they have a huge channel to fill before you can put the rim tape into them. Plus some of my favorite tires, such as the Panaracer Rampage, didn't fit very tight.

    Otherwise, I really liked the Blunts until I cracked them. I have a feeling that was more of a case of bad luck than anything else.

    Thx...Dug
