    Hendrix Wheelset

    Anyone swap out the stock wheels? If so, what did you get, and what kind of differences have you found?

    Cheers...

    There are not many '+' options right now. DT Swiss had a nice rim you can build with any hub.

    There's starting to be a decent selection of plus rim and wheelset options. I've been doing my own research. The wider rims that I've been considering for my own plus bike include:

    Rims
    Ibis 741 rims (i35, carbon) $375
    Light Bicycle 650BC (i45, carbon) $200
    Light Bicycle Asym (i34, carbon enduro layup) $279
    Easton Arc 40 (i40, alloy) $108
    DT Swis XM 551 (i40, alloy) $125
    Ibis 738 (i34, alloy) $99
    WTB Asym (i35, alloy) $90

    There are pre-built wheelsets for a number of these ranging from $550 for the Ibis 738 (but that's not so different from what you have) to $1,000 for a 650BC build (DT Swiss 240 hubs) to $1,500 for the Roval Traverse Fattie SL (i38, carbon, DT 350). Lots of choices out there.

    NOX Composites Carbon Kitsum laced with Sapim spokes to Onyx hubs..first carbon wheels and theses things are top notch..blazin fast..point and shoot accurate lines and Onyx silent, instant engagement hubs are the real deal..they blow away all the others high end hubs I ran in the past...well worth the investment. Bike rolls forever!Hendrix Wheelset-img_3928.jpg

    Also upgraded the fork to the 2017 FOX Float 34 120mm..smokes the Reba!

    That must be an awesome ride with the Fox shock and the Onyx carbon rims. I'm saving up for a similar wheelset on my plus ride. Very nice.

    Velocity Dually on DT Swiss 350, not the lightest, but rugged and fairly priced. I built then with DT double butted spokes.

    Velocity has upped their game a bit, past rims came full of shavings, but this set was clean and tidy

    Last plus wheels were Scrapers on Onyx Racing hubs. Those are the best damn hubs, kinda wish I'd been more patient and waited for a set...

    The Scrapers are okay, not as durable as I'd hoped, but we'll see if the Velocity fair better.

    Next wheelset will have Onyx hubs and Carbon hoops.

    Nothing for us mortals.

    Heavy, crude, and cheap. About what you'd expect on a $3k bike.

    Like how an $875 Fox smokes the $475 Reba. Of course it does.

    You guys throwing all the high dollar parts on this frame must think it's worth the effort. Good to know!

    I converted mine before I rode it. The front has been perfect, the rear has given me some grief only because it was the first time I've done it. Stan's, WTB stems, WTB 30mm tape. Finally got the rear right and cut a sidewall next ride.

    Glad I didn't know it couldn't be done.

    It's easy taping a rim, it's how we do it on fat wheels, no big deal, also split tubes. TL ready is nice, but not necessary.

    I'd like to some TL rim strips for wide rims.

    Big money rims from the boyz in knoxvegas, who'd have thunk that a backwater, mosquito plagued land could produce such sweet wheels

    I do miss the riding, not so much the mosquitos.

    I have a couple friends who been bashing the NOX wheels in the MTNS of NC for a while so their feedback was nothing but positive on the carbon hoops...and they were right..these wheels are top notch quality...

    What do the stock Devinci branded wheels with the FSA hubs weigh F and R ? Ideally w/o the skewers and rotors. I'm considering a wheelset upgrade and need to know the baseline mass so I know how much I'm dropping.

    Going from memory, but I think they were about 2150. I was actually surprised how light they were, and definitely did not drop that much on the upgrade.

    Wow, that's a good bit lighter than I expected. I'll get mine weighed when I replace the tires this spring and then determine whether a wheelset upgrade is worthwhile. Thanks !

    Just replaced the tires front and rear on my Marshall. While the previous tires were off I weighed each wheel and then backed out the weight of the rotors, valve stems, cassette, and rim tape. I'm getting F = 1042 g and R = 1263 g for a combined 2305 gr. It's probably a tad under that because when backing out weight for the components I didn't disassemble, I used published weight and we all know how those are often, ahh..."optimistic".
