    Stans Arch vs e13 TRS aluminum?
    140# rider looking to upgrade to a new set of 29 boost wheels. Seems like these are pretty comparable in price and specs. Any suggestions to go with one vs other?

    Thanks in advance.

    I had a set of e13 TRS wheels on my last bike and I was burping tires a lot. I've had three wheelsets since then and I don't think I've burped a tire but once or twice. If I buy another alloy wheelset it will be DT Swiss.

    Is this for trail riding? If so I'd think about something 30mm inner width or more.

    Agreed, i30 (i29 Stanís Flow) is going to fit most 2.2 to 2.5Ē tires perfectly and run lower air pressure than narrower rims while maintaining sidewall support. If youíre wanting to go bigger tires 2.5 and 2.6Ē Iíd recommend the i35 Barrons.
    Personally I donít buy completes and just get rims, and I like Stanís MK3 alloy rims with their BST for one of the best tubeless tire set ups. For high end alloy I like DT Swiss rims.

    Aggressive xc/trail etc. Pretty much sticking with 2.25-2.3 rr/2.35-2.4 fr tires on 26-27r/30f id rims which both brands listed provide.

    Yeah if I went Stans would go Arch rr/Flow fr.
