    Hi all

    Decided to give my carbon build another go, so looking for a 24h carbon rim, <60mm, with something like a 3k glossy weave (or what google suggests is this, basically to roughly match the rim in the pic below).

    A bit of brake wear is fine (it's for a front, but will mostly be braking fixed rear).

    Let me know if you have anything that might suit. Would consider taking as a complete wheel if necessary.

    Cheers

    Fair enough, thanks for the warning! The search continues...

    Is anyone running WTB Exposures? Looking for a tan-wall wide road tyre with occasional gravel. Gravel kings seem to be the cheapest, decent option, but hear that they wear fairly quickly. G-Ones look nice but pricey...

    Ha, I’d forgotten all about this thread. Still a lovely frame, sorry that the 1R stem didn’t work out for you in the end!

    Are you sure that you don’t want gumwall tyres though? :)

    Not sure whether it’s the stage profile or the fact that Tommy Windmills crashed out early, but other than the Nibili comeback story I’m struggling to get into the Giro this year.

    That would be a question for the pre-built wheels thread then :)

    This one is rather for generous advice from our resident wheel-builders...

    Probably just the tyres, unless you’re desperate to get rid...!

    Hi all

    Don’t suppose anyone is hoarding some tubs with a tread suitable for mixed terrain, thinking gravel/towpaths mostly but interested in a bit of cyclocross too.

    Thinking something along the lines of Challenge Gravel Grinder? Probably tanwall preferred but open to ideas.

    Cheers
