    Mag 30. Better profile and lighter weight than the MODOs.

    Go mags all the way. The Modos are just Doublewides built up as a complete wheelset and they flatspot very easily.

    I am not a weight freak either but I got tubeless and will never switch back. No more pinch flats and with Stans juice a stick about the size of a pencil went through the tire and it still sealed the tire....pretty much no more flats is cool.

    The biggest impact is the rolling weight I save. My bike feels real nice. It pedals like a 36 pound bike but weighs 44. The bike accelerates so much faster. I don't know why we are all not using tubeless set-ups....because the benefits are huge.

    I don't know about tubeless wheels pedaling any easier, you probably had let your air pressure slip in your old tires and then you had the pressure in your Stan's setup back to something nice and firm, hence the faster rolling.

    Anyway, to try and re-set this thread, "Modo" rims are indeed Doublewides that came as part of the Modo wheelset. Doublewides are one of the worst DH rims ever produced, and I am willing to say that to whoever asks. They flat spot super easily, it's almost impossible to get tires on and off of them, they're absurdly heavy, and any tire 2.5" or more narrow actually is more likely to pinch flat because they have no curve in the sidewall with a rim that wide.

    Might I suggest the Arrow DHX? Ask around, everybody who has 'em, loves 'em.

    nope I would always check my air pressure. One spot I ran lower for more grip and the other higher because of this one section where you pinch flat a lot. Go over to the XC forum and ask the difference between tubes and tubeless. They do pedal easier

    Not only that, but they are coming in a 24 tubeless. I'm looking forward to these if I decide to keep my Big Hit. I'm definitely looking forward to the tubeless rewards.

    Some German mag has done scientific tests showing that tubeless have less rolling resistance, it's not just seat-of-the-pants meters. Altho I run tubeless mainly for the ride - it's all about the cush.

    With my budget and the fact I could possibly get a deal, it's definitely an option and one I've been considering.

    Mag 30's can crack somewhat easily, since they are made out magnesium. My buddy has a set of them, and he dented the rim with a rock (going down a trail). The rim is spider-cracked around the dent. I also had another buddy who went through a set of those rims in two weeks. Spider cracks emerged around every spoke hole in the rim. But hey, no rim is perfect. I've been running a Mag 30 for a couple months and its held up. Another good option would be a 729 or the new DT Swiss freeride rim.

    probably since THEY ARENT MADE FROM MAGNESIUM...but whats in a name anyways?

    Mavics are the same, they generally use a stronger/stiffer alloy and design, so they can crack rather than taco. Although lots just keep riding them anyways.

    Sorry dude, didnt mean to piss you off. I remember someone telling me they were made of magnesium. Guess I didnt do my homework before posting. I'm not a complete idiot though, at least some bike parts are made of magnesium...and magnesium-based alloys can be welded so its not totally out of the question.

    wasent mad, just wanted to make sure it got across; it's a myth that appears every so often. But you were right that they (and some) rims are more brittle (or less malleable), especially compared to Sun's usual buttery-soft approach.
