    Framed Bikes Carbon Rims & Wheelset

    Just saw this on the Framed page.

    "350 per rim can be ordered now. Will be available soon as full wheel set."

    Just off the photos they look just like the rims I ordered direct through ICAN. They have held up great for me. The nice thing about paying the extra price I suppose would be a warranty from Framed.

    Cool. Tubeless ready I assume? That's certainly going to make the carbon Alaskan owners short list.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    They really do look like the 90mm wide rims ICAN sells, which is double wall. But I'm just armchair speculating.

    I am pretty sure that they are a single wall. I saw these a few months ago at their St Paul shop when i was in looking at other stuff. they look really nice in person. I will definitely be checking these out for a summer wheel if the weights are lower then double wall rims. i like the graphics too.

    Can these rims be set up with a 135mm offset hub?

    I think you are correct, they do look single wall. They are up on the site now. Framed Carbon Fat Bike Rim 2016

    How much of a thrashing does she put them through? Would you recommend for any terrain? I ride pretty rocky stuff, though they would still mostly be ridden in winter and on snow.

    She has been riding them all summer. Last weekend was the first really rocky trail and the sides have a couple of scratches but no issues. We have 4" tires on them now, this winter it will get a set of 5" tires on them. So far I like them better than the 90mm ICAN carbons. Haven't set them up tubeless yet, but it should be super easy.

    My girlfriend just got this bad boy a few weeks ago with framed carbon rims and has been using them on rocky trails since with no issues. They set up tubeless fairly easily once I got the bead set. The whole bike comes in around 28lbs with pedals. Only complaint she's had is that the pub hub that came with them is LOUD.

    My buddy picked up the 80mm framed carbon rims laced to dt Swiss big ride hubs. Seem to be great rims. They sealed up with one shot of the air compressor with JJ 4.8s. Hes been riding them for a couple of weeks now and really likes them.
