Alessandro: I did the first lap with these wheels but only 50km almost all flat, it's still too early to give an opinion but the sensations are good.

Hello, I'm interested in the 45 clincher model. Are all of them for disc? Do you have any model specific for rim brakes? Thank you so much


LightBicycle 2020/05/30

Hi Amram, We don't have the rim brake version at the moment. It will be ready around one month later. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Is it possible to order (from the Global Warehouse - shipping to Australia) - Falcon Pro AR45 w/ Industry Nine Torch w/ 6-bolt disc interface? I notice these are only normally available from the US warehouse. Specifically, this is my configuration that I've created: Wheelset AR45 disc RIM: Disc, Standard, hook, paintless, UD, 5 Years HUB: Industry Nine Torch, 12 / 100mm, 12 / 142mm, Shimano Road 11S Alloy, J-bend, 6-bolt, Gold (although can be black), 28H, 60T SPOKES: Sapim D-light NIPPLES: Aluminium Black ACCESSORIES: Black (default), Add Valve Stem, Apply Tubeless Tape Thank you!


LightBicycle 2021/02/06

Hi Bernie, Yes, we can build the road disc wheelset AR45 with the hubs you want. But, the 6-bolt hubs are not in stock, so it will take a few weeks to get them. We are on Chinese New Year vacation recently, will be back on Feb 16th. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Marcus 2020/08/23

Having a wheelset built by you, are you able to build it with internal nipples? Falcon Pro Ar 45 is the model.


LightBicycle 2020/08/24

Hi Marcus, Did you order the internal option when you first placed the order Falcon pro AR45 pro road disc and wheelset? The internal nipple hole is smaller than the external holes to fit the nipples. Thanks, Lightbicycle


M

Matt 2020/08/31

I believe Marcus is asking if you can make the rim with the nipples INSIDE of the rim, so they are not showing, thus improving aerodynamics. He is not asking about center channel holes. I would also like to know the answer to Marcus' question.


LightBicycle 2020/09/01

Hi Matt, Of course, we can custom made the nipple as internal for all bike rims. The internal nipple is one of the many options that we haven't listed online. There's too much customization that we can do, so the wheel builder will turn out loading really slow if we put all options online. You can order the custom options by email. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello. How much for AR 45 clincher with 28 Spokes front and rear with dt swiss 240 hubs please?

Hi Stephen, We only have the new EXP version of DT SWISS 240s available now. But you should know that we only purchase 24H spoke count for the road disc hubs. If you like 28H old DT Swiss 240s option, we will have them around July. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Request for quote. Seeking for a set of carbon road wheels, black matt in color, 45-50cm. These will be going on my wife’s low power e-bike 240 watt. She is not a racer, we just want a nice looking aero wheelset. The e-bike has 160cm disk brakes, center lock , thru axle, and has boosted sizing so the hubs need to be 12 X 110 & 12 X 148. This is the set up for the Specialized Turbo Carbon Creo. What would be best price for these wheels keeping in mind that we are NOT seeking for super strength, or ultra light race wheels. Thank you.


LightBicycle 2020/05/30

Hi George, I will get back to you on the 12/110mm hub when I confirm the details from DT SWISS. We only have the standard boost 240 EXP hubs in our hands at the moment. Thanks, Lightbicycle
