Andrew: Had a shop build up new rims for my fixed gear road bike. FALCON rim R65 Road laced with saphim cxray to 32h high flange Phil Wood hubs. Wheels ride great; solid, stable and feel good at speed and in the wind. I would definitely do another wheel build with deeper rims for my actual track bike.

Hello! I’m looking to upgrade my wheels on my Cannondale Caad 10 with rum brakes (yes I know it’s old but still love the frame) and was wondering what you would recommend? I’d like to stick with at least a 40mm lip? Thanks


LightBicycle 2021/12/21

Hi Paul, Can you tell me the calipers you have on your bike right now? What would be the tire width you plan on running? I am thinking of the 25mm wide rims 700C bike, but worry if the caliper can fit the 25mm width. Or if you want to use narrower tires, 23mm rims might be a better fit. Thanks, Lightbicycle

What would you recommend for a 2016 Specialized S-Works Venge ViAs?


LightBicycle 2020/12/15

Hi Phil, The wheels 700C of the S-works Venge ViAs are Roval CLX 64. The internal is 20.7mm and the outer width is 29.9mm. Are you looking for a similar measurement wheelset? We do have a new coming in AR55 (21mm internal, 28mm outer width). It's a new rim from our Falcon Pro series, which is highly scratch-resistant, and stronger than traditional rims. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi. Interested in 88mm non-disk QR wheelset with no drilled holes inside inner rim bed (for tubeless). Rear 18 spoke Sapim CXRay straight pull, laced 2:1. Front 16 spoke Sapim CXRay straight pull, laced radial.


LightBicycle 2020/12/01

Hi CG, Yes, we can build a 2:1 wheel with the R88 rim 700C for you. But please confirm that if your bike has enough spacing to put the R88 (18.82mm inner/26.54mm outer width), the widest area is 30mm. Will Bitex hubs work for you? It's the 2:1 we can get. Do you have any ideal hub in mind? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Would you have 88mm deep wheels for my 2019 Specialized Sirrus Elite disk brake style. These are the specs for the brakes: FRONT BRAKE TRP Flow Set Control, hydraulic disc, resin pads, flat-mount, 160mm REAR BRAKE TRP Flow Set Control, hydraulic disc, resin pads, flat-mount, 140mm This is my bike: https://www.specialized.com/us/en/mens-sirrus-elite-alloy/p/154505?color=&searchText=80918-4002 Please get back to me asap. Thanks


LightBicycle 2020/09/09

Hi Jambert, I highly suggest you check with the frame spacing of your bike to ensure the R88 is ok to fit. Because the widest area of R88 is 30mm. Not sure if this is ok with you. The widest area of R65 is 28.09mm in case you are wondering. Is it your bike or brake caliper wide enough? The brake track area is around 25.6mm wide on R88 rims. Thanks, Lightbicycle
