    Nextie Kylin / 100mm rims

    Nextie appears to be making a 100mm rim, the "Kylin" - has anyone seen these in person, and had any experence with them? I am wondering if they are as stout and setup as well tubeless as their 90s...

    I think those have been out almost (over?) a year now. Plenty stout. Minor PITA to set up tubeless, but once set they hold fine.

    Mike, thanks for the info!

    Just so I have a frame of reference for the "Minor PITA" tubeless setup, how do these compare to the nextie 90s setup?

    About the same. Helps to stick in a tube to get the beads seated, then remove the tube and be sure one bead stays seated.

    That sounds like just the ticket then - thanks!

    I feel a bit silly buying carbon rims for a fat bike, but I can't seem to find an 100mm rim in alu that looks like it would work tubeless.

    I have had success setting up holy Clown Shoe and Daryl rims tubeless. First with a layer of thin decorative duct tape to build up the bead seat and cover the holes and then with three strips of 72mm wide 3M 8898 tape with a lot of overlap to seal everything up. I may post a Youtube video in a few weeks on the setup.

    I've been using them on my Triple B, but with the 5.05 Vee Rubber 2XL's, so I'm not sure what tire you are using. For me the tires are hard to remove but set up quite easily, there's a really tight fit with them. No need to use a tube. I have two other Nextie rims and whether or not a tire sets up easy depends on how firm the sidewall is. Anything flimsy like a 45th tire I sometimes have to use a tube, or take it to a bike shop that has a better air compressor.
