The Rim

I just noticed that, for some reason, yesterday my rim photo and link got dropped (accidentally deleted by yours truly) so here it is again.  Carver's new carbon 29'er rim.  450 grams (about 20 grams lighter than a stans arch) and rock solid.  You can read more about them here.

I don't think they are available to the public just yet but they should be by summer.  Pair this stiff rim to the already stiff front end of the King Kahuna, some DT Swiss 240s thru-bolt hubs and some super secret black spokes and I should be tracking like a missile this summer.

Sweet. I'm not showing these pics at work. They'll think the picture of the hub is a disfigured lipstick case that would take up too much room in a Gucci bag. Eww.

Anxious to see how these work for you. I'm not sold on the carbon rim thing yet, not even for road.

I've got my fingers crossed that they'll work well for me. Essentially the same weight as a stans arch but stronger out of the box. the big question for me is how will they handle rock dings etc? time will tell!
