    Finally found the dream wheelset options: 27/30/35mm rim and 15/12 or 9/10mm axles!!!

    I'm one of those dudes that has been bitching about these multiple axle sizes lately. I personally think it's an excellent topic to complain about.

    Well, for now I've found a solution and it doesn't have to be a conversion end cap for a $700 set of Hopes or DT Swiss'. It's cheap enough that you can buy two sets of wheels for the price of those. It's Toray carbon. And just as importantly, it can be had with 27, 30, and 35mm internal width rims! Finally. Took about 10 hours to find this lol.

    SunRise Bike Carbon Fiber 27.5ER MTB Tubeless Disc Brake Wheelset Hookless Wheel
    $349 to $369/set
    Weight is 1565 to 1605 grams per set, not bad at all for the price
    Can be opted for both center lock and 6-bolt disk hubs
    27/30/35mm internal rim width options
    15x100mm / 12x142mm or 9x100 / 10x135mm axles
    (and this is huge for us lower-end XC guys with 9/10mm axles that want a wider rim size w/o having the LBS build one; I priced it out w/LBS labor at $175/wheel --- same price as these and these weigh less anyway!)

    I think I'll get the 30mm ones, because I'm not sure if a 27.5 x 2.8 will fit in my fork, but I'm sure a 2.6 will. 35mm seems a bit much for a 2.6 and I don't take corners fast anyway.

    What do you guys think, is this wheelset, the weight, and all of the buying options too good to be true?

    That labor cost can't be right... Good luck. Wheels are the last place I'd cheap out.

    Perhaps you should educate yourself about how carbon rims are made before you assuming that because they are (supposedly) buying their pre impregnated carbon rolls from Toray it means that you're getting a quality product.

    Oh man! I wish I knew all it took to build quality mountain bike wheels was a roll of pre-preg toray!!
