Dad, husband cyclist, wheel builder and bike shop owner/importer.
I have cancelled the transaction as that what I have realised too. It not quite as described.
Tubs at 130 psi are the problem. I have 25mm tubs in mine running at 80 psi and it's much more forgiving.
My favourite colour for the klein as well. They are light bikes without trying. Mines a bit over 7kg with dura ace 9 speed and that not light.
Chainring teeth look sharp. £80 is probably fair for the other bits though.
The problem with shallower box section rims in lower drilling is the wheel lacks the radial and lateral stiffness.
The xr 26 rim is fine in 20f/24r with a good triplet hub. I have one in production and the test wheels have been great. I would be wary of this rim in this drilling with a normal hub for all riders. It depends on what failure rate you find acceptable.
Silver kinlins xr22t rims will be back in july too. Tb14s and archetypes are out until october. Big mama dont bring in polished velocity rim.brake rims any more.
Silver rims area problem.
I agree about the adhn a bit flimsy.
Not worth it imho. It's not a job I ever want to do. The spoke semi fitting is the first problem. The wheel ending up 100g heavier is another.
Just because it is possible to do does not make it worth while.
Also for the rear wheel cxraysare too thin. With the kinlin xr31t rim even if cx sprints are used brake rub will be an issue. The spoke count is simply not high enough to stop the rim hitting the pads when out of the saddle.
If you want wheels that can be rebuilt get a wheel builder to build them.
Yes I do. Got them in steel, shimano,campag xdr as well.
