Olivier 2020/09/22

Hi, I would like to know if a rim like the FALCON rim R65 Road could be with disc brakes or would i need to go with a cx/gravel rim? Would i lose speed? Also, are these rims compatible with straight pull hubs and spokes (since i would like to install a PowerTap g3 disc). Thanks in advance


LightBicycle 2020/09/22

Hi Olivier, Thanks for your inquiry!May i know your tire width please? Then we can check whether R65 disc is okay or not.Yes, our rims are okay for straight pull hubs and spokes. We use straight pull hubs and spokes for wheelbuilding also. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Marc 2020/07/24

Hello LB, I am after a wheelset for my fixed gear bike, running 100mm front / 120mm rear axle length. The R65 would be a perfect rim but I see you do not offer a fixie/track build option in your menu. Is there a LB track hub as a build option? Thank you and regards, Marc.


LightBicycle 2020/07/24

Hi Marc, Have you checked out our hub list? Let me know which hub you prefer and I will send you the quote for R65 track wheelset 700C. https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/Light-Bicycle-Bike-Hub-List-of-2020.html Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I was wondering how a 25 and 28 mm tyre would fit. do you have pictures of this sort of rim with both tyre sizes? Luuk


LightBicycle 2020/04/27

Hi Luuk, Yes, we do have some tires tested on 700C road bike wheels. Which tire do you have? You can check out the actual tire weight on this page https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/Claimed-Weight-vs-Actual-Weight-of-Bike-Tires.html. And the tire fitting on this page https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/Road-Bike-Tire-Width-Charts.html. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hey, are the 700c 622mm or larger?


LightBicycle 2020/03/13

Hi Stefan, Yes, the 700c rims' BSD is 622mm (ISO standard). So you should match a 700c-622 tire to the rim 65mm deep 700C. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I am looking at maybe purchasing a pair of either R65 or R88 rims for my time trial bike. Is it possible to get a quote for the TPD delivery for those items to the United Kingdom?


LightBicycle 2020/02/06

Hi RD, We just sent the quotation with shipping cost for these 700C bike rims to your email address. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Alexander 2019/12/29

Hi there, I am inquiring about a wheel set build, I am really interested in the 65mm and 88mm combo for the triathlon bike that i have. I currently have the 45mm wheel set made by your company for the road bike and I love them. Please contact me if you can, thank you! -Alex


LightBicycle 2019/12/31

Hi Alex, Yes, we can build a mixed depth combo 700C wheels road rim brake for you. The single wheel option is not available online currently, so I will create an invoice for you for this order. What hubs do you want to build with? DT Swiss 240S or 350 hubs? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Lance 2019/09/16

Hi there. Can you do drilling for internal nipples on these? So a 2 or 2.5mm hole? Thanks, Lance


LightBicycle 2019/09/17

Hi Lance, Yes, we can make these wide gravel bike rims drilled for internal nipples (no extra charges added). For internal nipples, it is with smaller holes to make the nipples not visible. The diameter of the holes is 2.5mm. Which I can create the order for you (internal nipple option is currently not available online). Or you can leave a message on the order when you place the order through our website. We will double check with you to make sure everything is correct. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Meta 2019/07/16

Hi, Would you be able to deliver a pair of these within 2 weeks to Switzerland? (need it for racing)


LightBicycle 2019/07/17

Hi Meta, As nearly all of our orders are highly customized, we stock very few rims with us in the warehouse, and we need to make the 65mm road bike rims 700C with full hand-made which requires about 12 days plus 5 days for DHL shipping Two weeks are too tight for us. Turnaround 20 days is much more practical. Is it okay for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi John, 1. Yes, we can build only the rear road clincher wheel for you. What specs do you like to have exactly? DT Swiss 240S/350 or Novatec hub? 2.

Jon 2018/07/03

Can this rim shape be a tubular? Looking for 60-70mm deep for a track wheelset and this in a tubular version would fit the bill.


LightBicycle 2018/07/04

Hi Jon, Our U-shape series rims only have tubular depth have 65mm and 88mm. The 65mm deep tubular road bike rim will be the perfect fit for you. You can see the rim profile from the attachment. Thanks, Lightbicycle
