Is there a chance you can do these rims in feather weight option also? A rim like this onw under 400 grams would be cool!


LightBicycle 2020/08/18

Hi Relu, May i know your weight please? Do you ride aggressively? Then we can check how much weight of AR56 road disc 700c rims is better for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Jochem 2020/07/14

Hi all, I'm interested in a pair of light bicycle wheels. However, I'd want something with a 21mm inner width and 28mm outer width, and a depth of more than 50mm. Do you have something like that? Or are you planning to make that? 23mm inner width is just a bit too much for my road bike.


LightBicycle 2020/07/14

Hi Jochem, Yes, we do have something deeper than AR56 with the same width(28mm wide/56mm deep) road disc. But the model is not available online at the moment. Please check your email. We just sent you the rim profile. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello everyone, the DT Swiss 240s EXP (rear) also exists with 28 spokes but there is only the 24 spoke option. The 350 has both 24 and 28 spoke options. Do you also have the 28 spoke DT Swiss 240s EXP rear hub available? (24 is perfectly fine for the front) Cheers, Kai


LightBicycle 2020/06/18

Hi Kai, 28H EXP hubs for road disc wheels will arrive around one month later. Is it okay for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Witek 2020/02/05

Hi LB You should do this more classic width (best for 25-28mm tire) in the PRO version. Not every frame can take 32mm rim Will it hapen?


LightBicycle 2020/02/06

Hi Witek, Appreciated for the suggestion, yes, we aware that only some frames can fit with 32mm wide rim on the market now. The Pro series was designed for gravel use only. More and more gravel bikes are with the wider frame now. As for the tire fitting, according to our test, 32mm wide WR series rims are very easy to install 25c/28c tires from the most brands on the market. They are WR35/wr45/wr38/wr50 road disc wheels. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Jesse 2019/11/05

Hi Light Bicycle, For orders to California, do I need to use the North America ordering options, or can I also order using Global options? Thanks, Jesse


LightBicycle 2019/11/06

Hi Jesse, 1. You can order road disc wheelset 700C from both warehouses as long as the options and prices are ok with you. 2. We only stock the most popular options in the North America warehouse, so if you are looking for something more customized, you can check out the Global options. 3. You might notice that the hubs options are quite different, you can purchase Novatec, Bitex, Hope, DT, Tune from Global warehouse, and the Industry Nine, Onyx hubs are mainly offered by the North American warehouse. 4. The shipping and delivery are also different for two warehouses, North America uses UPS/USPS, while Global uses EMS. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Marcin 2019/10/06

Hi, I found some different information on your website. Can you verify this? In description here you wrote that on this rim we can install tires 28C to 50C but in label above there is information that for this wheel we can use 23C to 50C. So, what is correct? Best regards Marcin


LightBicycle 2019/10/07

Hi Marcin, Thanks for your correction! 23C~50C is the correct one for this 30mm wide road disc wheelset.I will have our guys correcting it these days. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Can these wheels come with hidden nipples and no rim bed holes.


LightBicycle 2019/10/01

Hi John, Yes, it is okay to manufacture the AR56 road disc wheels with internal nipples. The nipples will be hidden inside. And it is okay to make wheels without spoke access holes on rim bed. We can work on invoice for you if you are ready to order. Or you can place the order through our website and leave a message on the order. Then we can see it and will double check with you to make sure everything is correct. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Juno 2019/09/21

Hi, I wanted to order an AR56 wheelset using the Global Options. I have 2 questions: 1) Could I get the front wheel with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and the rear wheel with Sapim Race spokes? 2) I want to get the wheels with Stealth (Grey) decals under the clearcoat. Could I buy an additional set of stickers in Orange that I could affix and remove later?


LightBicycle 2019/09/23

Hi Juno, Please find our reply as below. 1. Yes, it is okay to build this road gravel wheels disc with front sapim cx-ray spokes, but rear with sapim race spokes. 2. It is okay to manufacture grey decal under clearcoat. But we do not have orange road wheels stickers here. I am sorry about that. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Do you do the logos in black? If so, would I just select "no logo" when purchasing and put that request in the notes? Thanks. Ian


LightBicycle 2019/09/16

Hi Ian, Yes, we can make the logo in black on these 30mm wide gravel road disc wheelset. You can just leave your requirement when you check out or allow me to create the order for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle
