    rim choice for 29er ss

    Hey All,
    I have a white industries rear ss hub that I'm going to have built up into a new rear for my 29er.
    I'm looking for a good, light, strong, rim.
    I'm about 190lbs and mainly ride xc trails and fireroads. I'm not into jumps, drops, tricks, etc.
    Suggestions? thoughts?

    Thanks in advance
    -rich

    Stans Arch. Expensive, but relatively light and really easy to setup tubeless with some yellow tape and the tubeless valve.

    Stans.

    Also, for 29er related questions, go to the 29er forum. In fact, just search there. The topic has been covered a million times.

    Another vote for Stan's Arch. Salsa Delgados are heavy and a PITA (pain in the azz) to setup tubeless. Us 29er SS guys are bi..... bi-cycle and hang out here and the 29er forum. You can get good answers in both forums.

    I do not discriminate with rims either, I have Stan's Arch equipped wheels on my 29er SS and my 29er geared double boinger, tires are different, most times.
