Michael: My AR56 rims are built up on Shimano RS770 hubs and on the bike (Velobuild vb-r-099) the rims are excellent and I have mounted 28mm Continental GP5000 tubeless tyres. This was a simple process and they inflated first time with just a track pump. I’m now looking forward to building up the rim brake 65mm and 88mm rims for another bike.

Abdul: The beautiful 12K Glossy AR56 laced with Chris King hubs. Works damn well as a 2nd wheelset for pure road riding on the Canyon Grail CF SL.

Ben: AR56 with DT Swiss 240s hubs, 24 CX-Rays front and rear. Tires are Panaracer Gravelking Slicks in 38mm. The wheels pair brilliantly with my ICAN AC388 cyclocross bike for 80% road, 20% gravel rides, exploring the farm roads and trails here in the Midwestern US. Very happy with the purchase.

Hi, Do you offer this rim in 28mm width? I see you have a 28mm but is only 46mm. I would like to get a rim with Inner 21mm Outer 28mm Width Hook type with 56mm Depth. Thank you.


LightBicycle 2020/07/20

Hi Joel, Thanks for your inquiry! We do have RR56C03 rim with 28mm wide/56mm deep road 700C bike rim. Please check attached rim profile. Is it what you like? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, I'd like to buy a set of AR56 wheels, how much would deformate a Continental GP5000 tubeless 25mm? Is your chart made on tube tires or tubeless one? Best regards, William


LightBicycle 2020/06/11

Hi William, We tested with tubeless tires. If you like to run GP5000 on the AR56 road disc wheels 700C, I would suggest you go wider (28c). 25c is too difficult to handle. But some people find it easier than others. Érico shared his experience with AR56 rims with GP5000*25C tires with us, you can check it out see if it's helpful. ​https://www.lightbicycle.com/storytelling/Erico--my-choice-of-quality-rims-based-on-race-performance-and-price Thanks, Lightbicycle

What is the thickness of the carbon at the nipple hole? This number will help calculate spoke length.


LightBicycle 2020/04/03

Hi Adam, Normally, it's 3mm thickness of the carbon at the nipple hole. Did you order AR56 road disc rims? What hubs and spokes/nipples are you going to use? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I would like to know if I can have the same "paintless" finish as the WR50 Disc on the AR56 Disc? I don't mind paying extra for the option. Also is it available with internal nipples? Thank You! Bill


LightBicycle 2020/01/24

Hi Bill, Thanks for your reaching out!For AR56, they are non pro series. We can not manufacture with paintless finish right now. For paintless(pro finish), it needs different mold material. I am sorry about that. But we will have two new pro models, they are 28mm wide/35mm deep or 45mm deep. Does it work for you? It is okay to manufacture rims with internal nipples holes. If you like internal nipple holes on 700C road rims, you can leave a message on the order. We can see it and double check with you, manufacture accordingly. Do you celebrate Chinese New Year in Hongkong? Thanks, Lightbicycle

A few questions: 1. For the US-sourced AR56 rims---do these come with center channel holes? 2. Would it be possible to purchase a global-sourced wheelset in AR56 that are custom made with Shimano Ultegra hubs? HB-RS770 and FH-RS770. Here would be all the specifications for a custom quote: - Shimano Ultegra hubs, 32H for both front and rear - (these hubs are centerlock, 10x100 and 12x142 J-pull) - Sapim CX-Ray Silver spokes 3. For the standard global-sourced AR56 wheelset options, what are the standard spokes? If Sapim CX-Ray were specified, what is the increase in cost? Thank you!! John


LightBicycle 2019/11/25

Hi John, 1. For AR56 road rims 30mm wide, they are with spoke access holes on rim bed in North American warehouse. If you like rims without spoke access holes, you can place special order. It takes around two days to manufacture for you. 2. Yes, we can build this road disc wheelset with shimano front  HB-RS770 12 / 100mm/rear FH-RS770 12 / 142mm road disc hubs. But we do not have silver spokes. Is it black okay for you? 3. Currently, we only have these shimano hubs in global shop not North American. We can build wheelset in global shop and ship by EMS delivery to you. Does it work? Thanks, Lightbicycle
