    Rough Rigid riding wheelset

    Hey duders, I have a superfly SS thats a great bike, the mustang elite TLR wheelset have been great up until this last month, I lost two spokes back to back, trued back up ok but thinking into the future for some new wheels. I ride mostly XC here in Arizona but take it down anything savage I can find, South Mountain National trail, corona de loma, also anything I can find in Moab Ahab etc.... Wouldn't mind a wider rim extend the tire profile to absorb rocky trails, not worried about weight really. I have loved a previous Stans Flow EX wheelset but they're not very wide, budget is considered immensely, i can only afford one wheel right now and probably should only be buying a rim but upgrade is well and upgrade! Thanks a bunch for any input!

    Stan's now makes the Flow MK3 which is 29mm internal. Can't speak to the durability of the new model but my Flow EX's are awesome

    On my 650b bike (supposedly stiffer wheel size) my WTB i23 rims have regularly needed truing o_0

    On my 29er (supposedly flexier wheel size) with Stans 25 IW rims, I've never had to touch them.

    Go figure...

    Also in Phx and ridden the same terrain and even rougher stuff rigid and single. Can't tell which tire you're running but I run the old style Flow 29" with a Maxxis Ardent 2.4 up front tubeless at 17-18 psi. Helps a bunch!

    I have a P35 with a 3.0 Knard on also. A friend rides that tire / rim combo up front and really likes it.
    If you're lucky enough to be in the mountains,
    you're lucky enough.

    Had great success with Blunt 35s laced to Hopes. The comparable size Easton rims are lighter, though.
