TECH

The 36mm deep rim is one of the newest members of our Road/Gravel lineup and the perfect partner for your next adventure. As more drop bar bikes become compatible with multiple wheels sizes, utilize these 650b rims with burly tires when the road gets rough.

Running larger tires brings better bump compliance, greater flat protection, and more grip. With a hooked bead and an internal width of 22mm, the 36mm can run anything from the super low pressures for gravel, right up to high pressure when the ride turns to pavement.

Philippe: A combination of 650b with 48mm tires at the rear and 700c with 38mm tire at the front is just right for gravel: good traction and comfort, slacker geometry. AR36 (RG722) rear and AR28 (RG922) front with 28 J-bent spokes, light (1440g/pair) should be plenty strong and durable. Good mid clearance at the back mud.

Mathieu 2020/10/07

Hello, Is it possible to use the RM650BC09 instead of AR36 (RG722) for gravel biking as it is way lighter and cheaper and have the same inner and almost the same outer width ? Cheers.


LightBicycle 2020/10/08

Hi Mathieu, Yes, you can use the RM650BC09 as a gravel use rim. But the design intention of the rim usually makes the layup engineering, resin ratio of the carbon fiber, reinforced point, etc are different for different disciplines. What tire pressure you usually run with? One thing you need to keep in mind is that RM650bC09 is hookless (no hook at the tire bead interface). Our recommended tire pressure is to keep it under 40psi. On the other hand, AR36-650B is with hook bead, which will hold the tires better under high pressure. If you prefer a lighter rim, we can customize the AR36-650b as a flyweight version for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, do you have any 650b rims with a profile suitable to add a brake track for rim brakes? Any plans to produce one?


LightBicycle 2020/01/30

Hi Miguel, For this 650B gravel rim, it is okay to manufacture with high TG resin brake surface if you like. Is it your bike and brake caliper wide enough for 29mm wide wheelset? If yes, we can manufacture for you. You can list your order specs here, we can work on invoice accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, Is this price per set? Any reason they wouldn't work with stock Cannondale Slate 28H hubs?


LightBicycle 2018/12/17

Hi Chris, Yes, we can purchase DT SWISS 240S lefty 1.0/50 28H for you. It's not available online currently. The purchase would take 2 months long time, will this be ok with you? If yes, pls let me know what specs you want for the whole gravel wheelset and I can create an invoice for you so you can finish the payment. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, is it possible to buy a wheelset with this rim with a Cannondale Lefty 1.0 hub at the front? I am riding a Cannondale Slate. I am weighing 71 kg. Are 24 spokes at the front and back possible for me? Had no problems on my other gravel bike with 700c wheels with DT Swiss 511db rims and 24 spokes at the front and back. Thanks Chris


LightBicycle 2018/06/04

Hi Chris, Do you like lefty hub with 24H? Currently, we only have lefty hub with 32H in stock. I have to check with hub suppliers and will get back to you soon. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Justin 2018/03/30

Hi, Can you tell me whether you can build these rims with a 36 hole straightpull DT Swiss j bend rear hub and a SP Dynamo 32 hole front hub? If you cannot supply the dynamo front hub do you have other dynamo hubs you can offer? Otherwise, please can you provide a price for the rear wheel and the front rim. Thanks Justin


LightBicycle 2018/03/30

Dear Justin Thank you for your inquiry! I am Charlie from LIGHT BICYCLE. Sorry to tell you that we don't have 36H hubs. For road wheels, 32H is strong enough. It's very rare that people ask about 36H. So, we do not order 36H hubs in stock. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Serge 2018/03/05

Hello, I am trying to decide which rim to use for a 650b bike that will see use on the road as well as on light trails. I weight 175lbs and I prefer to err on the side of durability. I plan to run 650b x 2.1" MTB tires (like the WTB Nano) at about 20-25 PSI, or 650b x 48cm road tires at about 35-40 PSI. I would like to run tubeless rims/tires. Also, I would like the rear rim to be drilled asymmetrically (offset 3mm ideally) while the front is symmetrical. With that list of requests, which rim would you recommend?


LightBicycle 2018/03/06

Hi Serge, The best we can do is drilled RG722 with 1.0mm offset. But it would require adding 35g to reinforce the rim strength. Does it work for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle


S

Serge 2018/03/06

How about the AM724 as an alternate?


LightBicycle 2018/03/07

Hi Serge, The best we can do is drilled RG722 with 1.0mm offset. Is it okay for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Nick 2018/02/13

Hi I've just purchased a pair of your RG722 rims. Before building them, I have a couple of questions: 1. Do you recommend the use of nipple washers between the spoke nipple and rim - with aluminium rims I normally use these washers on rims that do not have eyelets on the spoke holes. 2. With aluminium rims, I apply a little oil to the nipple where it bears against the rim. Do you recommend lubrication between the nipple and rim on your rims, and if so, what sort of lubrication. Regards Nick


LightBicycle 2018/02/13

Dear Nick, 1. We do not use nipple washers here for building wheels. The spoke holes’ wall strength is strong enough. But if you insist to use nipples, it is okay if you do not mind weight adding. 2. We do use lubrication oil while wheel-building. But it's a local brand, you probably can't find it in your country. I suggest you can buy it from your local bike shop. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello Philipp, Thanks for your inquiry. There is a new 36mm depth 700C rim which is similar to RG722. Please find attached rim profile for reference. Does that work for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle
