    That's not a rim, this is a rim....



    132mm, and there's some drilling to be done...

    It's 26mm wider and 530g heavier than a Clown Shoe!

    Sweet!
    My 2XL protos (5.6'' on the 103mm rims) would likely yield 6'' + casing width on those.

    Mount a production 2XL (5.2'' on 100mm), inflate to 20si, let it stretch for a day and measure the casing width.

    These would be perfect for my new spokeless build.
    You change your own flats? Support your LBS and pay them to instead.

    VB; can you please tell us a little more about said rim?

    By the looks of it, something you had made to order?

    I got them from Classic Cycle, but I don't see them on there just now.

    They do have undrilled 100s and 80s now though, so I may be back for those too.

    I tried to get their 67mm 29er rims with no holes (they only offer 36h) but he told me that minimum order for anything other than 36h is 50 pieces! What I don't understand is, who is going to buy a 36h fat rim when NOBODY makes a hub that can be used with it?

    Classic Cycles is a chopper and custom shop rather than a fatbike shop. Lots of custom riders don't run brakes or use cantis or coasters.

    There's plenty 36 hole hubs but not in the ultra wide sizes.

    Yes, I get the impression that they are completely oblivious to the concept of chain angles, Q-factor and rotational weight.

    ... and rideable bikes.

    Still, they're a useful resource.

    If I can only get them to sell raw 60-622 rims with no holes, I can machine them into a 29+ Marge Lite. That would be a perfect compliment to all of the 197/150 forked fat bikes that want to run a 29x3 wheelset during the eight snow free months of the year.

    They now have a 32 hole version available.

    They are a little vague on the weight. Both the 26 and the 29 rims are listed at 1415g so I think that their specs are more like a Trump campaign promise...pick a number out of the sky and go with it.

    These 29er fat rims are under 1kg and the alloy rim is reasonably priced. Quality...I'm not sure???

    I wonder if you just meant drilling spoke holes or were you creating cut outs to shave off weight?

    Just in case anyone is still interested in these 132mm rims, Classic Shop now sells them in 32 holes as well.
    Looking for fairly priced 17.5" Farley EX 8/9.8 in Germany or neighbouring countries. Frame only or whole bike, TIA!
