    Hey, these are the very same rims I'm after. Some pictures would be nice if you have a moment to spare. Thanks

    Daym. Not what I was expecting, but thanks for the confirmation.
    Kinlin is 19/24mm width according to the internet. What does the rear tire actually measure on it?

    C'est beau. Thanks for a provisional confirmation of the tyre clearance.
    And those cranks...oh... I think I need to set a search alarm on all the eBays, unless you're selling yours?

    The rim in question. External 25 internal 17.9. I guess this is the narrowest out of the modern rims..?

    Tire in question is Conti GP5000. Luckily these come in 23 and 25mm.

    I think best is to put some spare wheels and brake calipers on and do the measurements...was hoping someone could confirm so I could maybe go ahead and order the wheels whilst away for 2 weeks

    So can't really say for sure whether mine will take 25s or not. Dammit.
    Gotta bring the measuring tape out.

    This got one internal cable. Or one doesn't count? 🤣

    I'm seeing these come up for sale but it's either the price is out of reach (a lot in Japan), or the logistics could be a faff (UK/USA). Non HM variants are plenty with some full bikes being sold for what I'd consider very cheap.
    Like this one:

    Was after this but then the frame I got came up.

    I've enquired re the wheels for sale from ghostface, but considering I'm in EU not UK anymore the logistics might turn out a right pain.
    Checked their website quickly and their R35 based full wheelset with the fancy brake track comes in 1411gram and 611 USD. R45 based wheels come at 1482g and 646. Both calculated with CX ray spokes and Novatec hubs. Sounds like a decent deal considering were talking rim brakes where it's IMO hard to measure the actual "life left" on second hand options...
    This also might be the only new/expensive part on the whole bike so gotta have a think..

    Talking tire clearances my mate has a similar SS Evo and he runs 25s no bother? Can anyone share their knowledge on the subj?
