TECH

With a huge 45mm internal width and the ability to run anything from a 2.8” tire right up to a monstrous 3.2”, the XC745 will give you the smooth rolling traction you’ve always wanted.

Typically, stock alloy plus wheelsets are built with heavier spokes to make up for their lack of stiffness. With a vertically compliant rim and significant side stiffness, lighter spokes are used to reduce overall wheel weight. Upgrading to our plus wheelset can easily save more than a pound off of a stock wheelset! Breath new life into your ride and bring a new level of responsiveness, stiffness, and control.

Maz: This is the 2nd custom wheelset I bought from LB. Decided to make the 26" On One Fruity Fatty into 27.5+. Custom it with i9 Hydra Rear 170mm and Boost for the front. It's a Heavy Duty version hence LB another 50 grams to each rim. I'm super in love with it with 12K matte looks.

Trying to build a 27.5 plus wheelset for a pivot switchblade. Front axle is 15x110 Boost QR thru axle. Rear axle is 12x157 Super Boost Plus thru axle. Is that possible? Didn't seem like that rear axle was an option on the website.


LightBicycle 2017/11/11

Hi Rob, It is okay to build 27.5mm plus wheelset with front 15*110mm boost/rear 12*157mm. We have Hope pro 4 hubs with front 15*110mm boost/rear 12*157mm thru axle size. Is it okay for you? Do you like wheelset with sapim cx-ray bladed spokes? Sram XD driver? 32H? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, how come when I pick Lefty for the front hub it drops all the options for the rear? They have nothing to do with each other. I have a lefty front but need a boost 148 rear. Thanks


LightBicycle 2017/02/08

We are able to build the wheels with front lefty hub/ rear 148mm boost hubs. Sorry, not all axle options are available on our website. When you are ready to order, we will create the purchase link for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

G'day I want to order these wheels but I have to get them shipped individually to avoid import duty, I know there will be an extra shipping cost to Sydney Australia and that's fine. Front and back wheels are the same. Details are:- rims 650bc14 45mm int 50mm ext, hubs dtswiss 240S straightpull 28 hole 15 x 110 front, 12 X 148 rear, shimano freehub 11 spd, 6 bolt rotor, sapim cx ray spokes, brass black nipples, matte finish, UD weave, include valve stems and tubeless tape. With the decals can you do 'Yeti" turquoise ? Thanks Jeff Beake


LightBicycle 2016/11/10

Hello Jeff, Thanks for your inquiry. For Australia customers, most of them do not need to pay for tax. We can help to work on it. Don't worry. For the custom decals, we can not make the text “Yeti” on rims, it is not allowed. What kind of text do you like instead? Then we can design graphics accordingly for you. Normally, it is around $70 ~ $120 for the custom decals. Our standard light bicycle decals are available at no charge in a variety of colors if you would like this custom charge removed. Thanks, Lightbicycle
