  • Ooh shit. I'm now thinking of going with some extra chunky MTB rims, might look nuts on a tourer but whatevs. Any suggestions?

  • Most MTB rims aren’t designed to take grav/road pressures - I had my hubs rebuilt into the grav specific DT GR531DB which are a beastly 28mm external/24mm internal and each weighs about 100g more than the hope rim - time will tell but hoping I’ve found the right balance of quality, weight and strength.

    @r.hobbs maybe, I have heard other tales of this happening to hope rims.

  • Yep, mate had a split in exactly the same way, not that many miles on them.

    He's not exactly graceful on a bike but expected more.
