    24" rear wheel

    Thinking of getting rhyno lights XL 24" rims any opions for a 24" wheel they should be strong enough, any horror stories? I want to go lighter I have singletracks right now.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    I have never tried a rhyno lite xl but I have had rhyno lites and they were pretty weak. Maybe look into getting an wtb laserdisc dh wheels but I have no clue about the weight but they are way strong. Why get rid of the singletracks, they dont weigh that much.

    Ive got a 24" singletrack rear and it is decent but not great by any means. My 24" Halo however is a beast and is worth the few extra ounces. I had a rhyno lite on the front of another bike, so not really much of a comparison, but i wouldnt use it in a DH/FR setting.

    Its a bit heaver then a single track but you might want to look into 24" MTX rims.

    24" Single Track: 540g
    24" MTX: 605g

    Yeah Brett I kinda agree with Bob on that one but I am really not the one to be talking as I constantly upgrade my bike. Have you ever thought of putting a 26 inch rear wheel on the back, you can buy the 26 inch rear end from specialized so you can run a 26, that way you have alot more choices on wheels.
