Hello Light Bicycle! What means the "Tubeless Compatible" in your description? Simple Tape (Like "Yellow Tape") in the rim and ready or Is there more work or stuff necessary? And next, which spoke tension so you recommened? Best and many thanks in advance, Robert
Hello Robert, For tubeless compatible, it means the rims can be used with tubeless tyre. We are manufacturers for carbon rims, currently, no tyre, inner tube and tape to some with rims. We will mail you once we have ordered them in stock. For spoke tension, you can use 85KGF to 120kgf while building wheels. Thanks, Light-bicycle

Greetings! I'm a rather heavy (100+ kg with gear) and aggressive rider. I've bent aluminum 32 hole 550gr rims before. I've read at MTBR that it is possible to have wheels made burlier to handle my requirements. What would you suggest?
Hello sir, We can make the rim stronger, to be around 430g to 450g.We think it will be strong enough for you. Is it ok? Thanks, Nancy
Hi, I'm trying to decide between the standard or stronger versions of this rim, it would be for an enduro bike so I'm looking for something equivalent to a Mavic 321 or Stans Arch Ex rim if you're familiar with those. IE not quite downhill strength, but still strong. Can you recommend? Thanks again Andrew
Hello Andrew, Thanks for your inquiry. You can use the stronger version(UD matte), it is around 400g for each rim. Is it ok? It is pretty strong. http://www.flickr.com/photos/light-bicycle/sets/72157631704846817/detail/ Thanks, Light-bicycle
Hi there, I am from Auckland, New Zealand and I would like to buy a pair of this wider mtb 26er carbon bike rim 26 inch rims(tubeless-compatible). With UD matte finish 32 holes and if possible with ENVE graphics on it. How long will it take to arrive in Auckland after i pay? How come it is only US$ 140 on ALIBABA website? Do you have the wider version available now? 35mm outer? And if i buy 4 rims will it be cheaper? Thanks and Regards, Eric
Hello Eric, Thanks for your inquiry. The price for our wide 26er rim is USD150/pcs, not US/pcs. If we make enve logo on the rims, when the custom open to check the carton, the rims will be kept by the custom. So it will be better to make rims with your own logo design.

Hi, Are there any updates on the manufacturing improvement of the 26in wide carbon wheel akin to the 650B? I'm still seeing reports of rim failures and I'm wondering what percentage of rims are affected. Thanks.
Hello Michael, Thanks for your suggestion. We do will use the new process for 26er wide rims, and we are still checking how new process perform on 650B rims. Once the customers' riding is good, we will start to change the process for 26er wide rims. For 26er wide rims, quite a few customers use stardard rims for DH rims. So, it causes the failure. Or ,we can make 26er wide rims much wider or deeper? Thanks, Light-bicycle
