    New wheels just arrived in the mail from Schlick. Northpaw S rims laced to Hope hubs with Wheelsmith spokes.... Really amazed at how light they are.

    Rear wheel with 170mm hub is 1107 grams

    Front Wheel with 135mm hub is 1006 grams

    Cost was under $700 plus shipping. I called Schlick and discussed the wheel build. They had them to me in less than 2 weeks. I know they have a limited number of these rims. Don't know how long their stash will last.

    I figured it would be best to jump on the components I want for my Beargrease build, since most of the best bling will probably be OOS by the time snow falls.

    Doh! I didn't know that they sold pre-built wheelsets. Oh well, I just got the Hope FatSno hubset and a pair of the Northpaw-S rims for my wife's fat bike build. Now I need to figure out what spoke lengths I need. Anyone know? It's 32-hole and I'll do 3x for both the front and back.

    Hope FatSno 135mm Front:
    Drive Side - ?? mm
    Non-Drive Side - ?? mm

    Hope FatSno 170mm Rear:
    Drive Side - ?? mm
    Non-Drive Side - ?? mm

    DT 14/15 gauge spokes if that matters.

    Thanks,

    Info directly from Schlick:

    I assume you are building these up symmetrical!

    We use Sapim spokes and these are the lengths that work for us.

    Hope FatSno 135mm Front:
    Drive Side - 264 mm
    Non-Drive Side - 262 mm

    Hope FatSno 170mm Rear:
    Drive Side - 264 mm
    Non-Drive Side - 264 mm

    That was cool of them to share the information. Not that it's proprietary or anything, but it does save you some time.

    Good looking wheels. I'd love to have that rim in a ~65mm version.

    How's the tire fit?
    Anyone go tubeless with the 47mm rims like above?
