Russ 2019/12/07

I am looking for a complete wheels set for a custom build on a Ibis Ripmo 29er. I am looking at two different rims AM933 vs RM29C07. If you could tell me which is the best for All Mountain/Enduro using 2.4 to 2.5" tires? My weight is 120 lbs without gear.


LightBicycle 2019/12/09

Hi Russ, For AM933 and RM29C07 rims, they are both okay for 2.4~2.5" tires. They are strong enough for Ibis Ripmo 29er. But AM933 29er rim is with asymmetrical profile design, it will make spoke tension more balanced between drive side and non-drive side. It will make wheels more durable.So, you can go for AM933 rims.And when we compare the strength between this two rims. AM933 rims are stronger. You can reach us if you like to know the strength difference. For hubs, do you like DT Swiss 240S boost or DT Swiss 350 boost hubs? Please let us know which hubs you prefer, we can get 29er wheelset price for your reference. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Frank 2019/12/04

Hello, I am interested in buying a wheel set with the AR46 disc rim and I have two questions regarding the finish and the decals on the rim. 1. Is it possible to create the wheel set with a finish with a 3k vertical twill pattern and a matte coating? Like the wheels on the bike in the link below but in a matte finish instead of glossy. 2. When choosing the decals, I was not sure what is included in this. I would like my wheel set to have a stealth grey decal at the valve only. No other decal or sticker. Is this an option? Basically this wheel set finish (see link below) but with a matte coating and the same decals you can see here but in stealth grey: https://www.lightbicycle.com/photowall/Customized-version-of-RR56C02--30mm-wide--56mm-deep--with-3k-twill.html Will any of my customization whishes cost anything extra? Thank you very much for your help! Best, Frank


LightBicycle 2019/12/05

Hi Frank, 1. Yes, we could do the 3k vertical twill pattern and a matte coating on the carbon fiber bike road disc rims. 2. The decal shown on the image that you sent to me is the sticker that could be removed. And the stealthy grey color is not available, how about the silver color? We send you some pictures for your check through email. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I'm interested in getting a set of wheels as follows: IM: Non Disc - Grooved Graphene Surface, matte, UD, With Holes HUB: Bitex RAF10 / RAR9(Non-disc Only), QR / 100mm, QR / 130mm, Shimano Road 11S, J-bend, Non Disc, Black, 20H, 24H, 24T SPOKES: Sapim CX Ray NIPPLES: Aluminium Black ACCESSORIES: No Would it be possible to get these built with internal nipples? If so, how much would that cost? The weight quoted for the wheels is 1503g+/-20g. Is it possible to request a set that are closer to 1483g? I am 72kg if that matters. Thanks for your help. Best regards, Phil


LightBicycle 2019/11/29

Hi Phil, 1. Yes, we can make this non disc road wheels with internal nipples for you. And we don't charge for this customized option. So the price would be the same. I am sorry, you didn't mention the rim model No. on the comment, can you kindly advise so I can quote and make the invoice for you accordingly since the internal option is not available online. 2. All our rims are 100% handmade, so it would be very difficult to control the accuracy of the weight. So many factors that would affect the final weight. But we can try to make a light version for you with special care. But no guarantees. I can send the scale photo to you before shipping. Will this ok with you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I need to replace my carbon rims (originals are Pro Lite Bracciano Carbon C50T), do you maybe have rims that would be a suitable replacement? The rims have internal nipples and are 50mm deep; 20.5mm wide but this is not an issue if the replacement would be wider.. I would use the exiting hub, spokes and nipples and just put new rims on. Thank you, any help would be appreciated. Regards, Kruno

Erik 2019/10/29

Hi, Your prices seem different on the buy page compared to the catalog page. For example the WR50 disc rim is listed at $259 but when I go to the North America page int says $279.


LightBicycle 2019/10/30

Hi Erik, And yes, our Global warehouse and North America warehouse has a different price system. The North America warehouse absorb the shipping cost and import tax for the stock rims. Shipping within Canada and US is by UPS, the cost would be much lower than ship from Global directly. So you need to compare the all-in price for the product. Our checkout page was desgined for all-in price comparison use. You can add the items you like to puchase to the cart and do a full around compare. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Guys! I'm a happy customer, until now, of your products! I've a wheel set for my MTB, and now, I'm purchasing a new road bike. Because, I'm a heavy rider, I need to replace the "OEM" wheels by a "strongest" wheel pair. That's the point where you come into play. I', happy with the quality of your product, and I'm thinking to buy my desired wheel set from you. I was thinking about a pair of custom wheel set based on WR50 Disc version. But, I'm wondering if I can order a custom version using WR38 at front wheel, and WR50 at rear wheel. I couldn't find the way to configure the order by your "Online Shop" that way. Is it possible to order that custom setup? I guess so. Can you help me? Thanks in advance....


LightBicycle 2019/10/30

Hi Samuel, Very glad to hear that you are satisfied with our products. It is okay to order front WR38/rear WR50 wheelset. We just sent the quotation for this wide road disc wheelset to your email. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Taehwan, Which mtb bike rims do you like? 1. Yes, you can have the pro and non-pro rims for the front and the rear. Given the finish is quite different, we can make the pro rim UD, matte to match the non-pro rim for you. Will this be ok with you? Please let me know the specs you like to have an I will check with the avaialblity and let you know the lead time. 2. Yes, you can have match decals as you wish, or just plain rims also ok. If you want decals, let me know which one do you like to have for both front and rear mountain bike rims. I will specially mark the order for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Jim 2019/10/27

I am building up a new FAT CHANCE Slim Chance road bike with a CAMPI 11 speed Record build kit. The kit has DT Swiss aluminum rims with Campi Record (2013 vintage) hubs. I weight about 205 it’s. I am interested in taking hubs and building a set of wheels with your RIMS. I am not a racer ride mostly hilly mountain terrain. I’m looking to loose some bike weight and improve my bikes performance. I know zero about road bike wheels...What Rim would you recommend for me? My new frame will be here in 8-10 weeks (only taking 10 months). Thx, Jim


LightBicycle 2019/10/28

Hi Jim, A few questions for you so I can know better of your requirements before jump into any recommendations. 1. What would be the tire width you plan to use on the road 700C wheels? 2. Do you want to build the wheels yourself? I understand you want to use the hubs from the current wheels? 3. So the weight of rims would be the key concern right? Since you are riding on the mountain terrain road, I would recommend go with shallower rim to reduce the weight and makes the climbing easier. We have R25(25mm wide, 25mm deep, rider weight limit 110kg) and R35(25mm wide, 35mm deep, rider weight limit 125kg) 4. We have a few options for the hubs (available in campy 11s freehub), we have Bitex, DT SWISS and Carbon Ti. Which would be your choce? Thanks, Lightbicycle

I have a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix evo and wanted to get some carbon wheels. It’s a bit tight but currently tires measure about 25.4mm inflated. Looking for something in the 30-40mm deep clincher rim brake. I’m not sure if a 25mm width rim with 25mm tire would leave enough clearance. I’m also a 205lbs with no gear. Any recommendations? Do you make and rims that are external width of 23mm? That mike work okay.


LightBicycle 2019/09/29

Hi D, We have R35 rims with 25mm wide/ 35mm deep. We recommend 23mm tires for these rims since rims have a bit wider than tire width would have a better aerodynamic performance, what's more, the 25mm wide tires would be wider than 25.4mm after inflated. We also have RR38C02 rims with 23mm wide/ 38mm deep. Do you want a pair of rims or one set 700C wheelset? Hubs option? Then we can quote accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

As a matter of fact, we do offer OEM/bike shop pricing if you are interested. Do you like road bike wheels 700C or mountain bike wheelset? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I’d like to buy a pair of fat bike wheels, on Hope fatsno hubs in purple, to run 4.8inch tyres. No decals. Purple nipples. Valves included. I’m looking for the strongest wheels, not the lightest, because of my size. Can you tell me the best rims and the cost for deliver to the UK please? Thank you, Tony


LightBicycle 2019/08/20

Hi Tony, I would recommend the FAT680 (80mm inner/85mm outer width, 20mm depth) fat bike wheelset, it will complaint with your 4.8" tires. The rider weight limit is 120kg. If you are a heavy rider or need a reinforced version, we can customized a special version for you. https://www.lightbicycle.com/85mm-wide-carbon-26er-fat-bike-wheels-hookless-double-wall-tubeless-compatible.html Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Can I use any carbon brake pad on your rims without affecting my warranty? Regards, Nikul


LightBicycle 2019/08/17

Hi Nikul, Normally, brake pads brands would specific about the pad's usage. Take Swiss Stop, for instance, their Yellow King and Black Prince series are specially compound for carbon rims. So as long as you choose the right brake pads, it won't sabotage the rim warranty. You have to puse the pads for carbon fiber rims only. But our pads are tested well in our lab braking test .

Hi, I have been using your wheels for the last 3 years and they have been great with absolutely no issues whatsoever ever, great job! I race XC MTB all over Australia and NZ and have given praise to your wheels to many people who have gone on to make purchases. I am building a new, lighter race bike and have been looking at the XC925 wheels which to to be exactly what I am wanting. Do you have have any special offers or discounts for loyal returning customers that I can access for this purchase? Keep up the great work, Nick.

Brandon 2019/08/12

Hi there, I’m 6’6” and 240lbs and found your E932 wheels that should hold my weight up to 264lbs. I’m still learning as much as I can about wheels but as I was choosing a hole count I automatically chose 36h for my rear. According to your guys expertise, does having 36h vs 32h give a larger max rider weight on the same wheel set up? Thank you! Brandon H


LightBicycle 2019/08/12

Hi Brandon, 1. The EN932 is the strongest 29er enduro bike rim we offer online by now, the weight limit is 140kg(308.6 lbs.), so your weight would be fine for the rim. 2. If you are planning on doing some rough riding or hard terrain, we can make a reinforced version for you. If you like to order the reinforced version from us, I will make the invoice for you as this is a customized option. 3. Impact resistance and wheel stiffness speaking, the wheel with 36H will certainly stronger than 32H. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hil 2019/08/07

Hi, I'm interested in buying the RR56C02-30 rim. But before I do I would like some answers on the following questions, if possible. 1: When developing the RR56C02-30. Which tire did you use as a baseline? 2: Can you tell me how wide a Continental GP5000 (tubeless) 25mm and 28mm will be on a RR56C02-30 when inflated to 5 bar? 3: Is it possible to build the rim up with hidden spoke nipples? Thank you in advance Regards,


LightBicycle 2019/08/07

Hi Hill, Please check our reply as below. 1. For RR56C02-30mm wide road disc rims, normally we use 25C to 32C. But the tire width range can go from 23C~50C. 2. We measured GP500 tire width on AR rims(AR36/AR46/AR56). For 25C tire, the tire width is measure at 26.54mm. For 28C tire, it is measured at 29.37mm and 28.64mm. Please check below sheet we did. 3. It is okay to manufacture rims with internal spoke holes. The nipples will be hidden inside the wheels. You can leave a a message on the order that you need "internal nipples for rims". Then we can see it and will manufacture accordingly. Or you can list your order specs here. We can work on invoice accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

LightBicycle 2019/10/09

Hi Hill, 1. Do you mean you like to order rims only, and you will build rims with Rotor hubs. If yes, it is okay to buy road 30mm wide 700C rims only from us. 2. It is okay to manufacture rims with internal nipples.   For without spoke access holes on rim bed(UST), it is hard for wheelbuilding. If you are not experienced in this kind of wheelbuilding, we do not recommend it for you. But if you know how to build this kind of wheelset, it is okay to order rims without holes on rim center channel. Thanks, Lightbicycle


LightBicycle 2019/10/11

Hi Hil, 1. I will get back to you once you confirm the possibility of the Rotor disc hub. Or you can purchase from Rotor directly, we can sell the rims only to you. 2. We can only build with rims either with no holes on the channel or internal nipples, cannot do both. Which would you prefer to have on your road disc wheelset? Thanks, Lightbicycle

LightBicycle 2019/08/05

Hi Alex, We do have Tax-Prepaid Delivery offers for the European orders, It's USD158(about EUR 142) for one complete wheelset to Romania, tax included. Which means that you don't need to pay for any tax when the wheels are imported. I can create the invoice for you because TPD is not available online currently. Let me know the exact configurations of the wheels. Is it road dics wheels or mountain bike wheelset? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Everyone, I would like to know what is the quickest turn-around from factory to home that you do? I apprecieate an added cost will apply. Thank you for your excelent & tradefair work Andrew.


LightBicycle 2019/08/01

Hi Andrew, 1. For most of the case, lead time refers to manufacturing & wheel building plus the shipping & delivery time. If we have the rims you want in stock, rims can be shipped out within 2 business days, If you like to have it build up as complete wheelset, it would take 3 business day before shipping. So what rims/wheels are you interested in? Could you let me know the configurations that you have in your mind as well? I can check if it's in stock for you. 2. The shipping & delivery time would take another 7~10 days by EMS. If you want to speed up the shipping process, you can choose DHL. It would cost more of course. Is there any time restrictions that you have? 3. Which product are you interested in? mtb wheelset or road? How many? Then we can check on the lead time accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I was going through your custom made Mountain bike wheel menus (trying to configure the wheels I want made, etc), and on the spoke section there is NO option for DT Swiss Champion 2.0 straight gauge black? You only have their "competition" spokes... DT swiss Champion 2.0 straight gauge spokes are like the "reference standard" for Mountain bike wheels. Can you please add the DT swiss Champion 2.0 straight gauge black spokes into your wheel making process, and into the menu system for custom build configuring? (they also come in silver as well, so you should probably add that also) Thanks, Daryn Falandys

Hi Can you advise on a 26 rim if i was too use the True Precision Stealth rear hub, would i need it symmetric or asymmetric


LightBicycle 2019/07/15

Hi Sir, Asymmetrical rims are designed and drilled to compensate for the offset design of most hubs. The asymmetry of the rim allows the spokes to equalize in the tension between the drive and non-drive sides of the wheel. The result is in more even spoke lengths and a stronger wheel build which requires less trying than a traditional rim. On the other hand, symmetrical rims utilize standard drilling practices and do not compensate for the offset hub design. Can you get the hub dimensions drawing to confirm that the hub is made with standard offset? Also, can you confirm whether if your frame a specially made frame that with offset feature? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Jonathan, We can purchase the White industries Titanium hubs for you if that's what you wanted. Sorry that Light Bicycle only sells carbon bicycle rims. Our rims are very durable that many rims last for a few years after some very rough riding. We also had our rims test by pro riders like Ali Clarkson to see how they perform during all sorts of riding. You can check out those videos if you are interested to see the performance in the filed. Also, all our standard rims are with a 3-year warranty and 5-year or lifetime warranty is available for our pro rims (new tech).

Cal 2019/06/13

Hi, You indicated that your wheel is manufactured with two parts joined together which you refer to as “duotek”, resulting in fewer joints, therefore fewer points of failure. Would it be possible to make the rim in one piece so that there is no joint? Would a one piece with no joint be a better design than a two piece? Cal


LightBicycle 2019/06/14

Hi Cal, All Light Bicycle rims are made with one-piece layup years ago. Not sure the concept of Duotek is on our site. We did publish an article about one-piece layup. You can check it out at https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/technology-improve-of-light-bicycle-carbon-mtb-650b-rims.html What's more, we separate joints of every layer in a certain order so the rim can as close as it can be to the Isotropic structure. Our Pro series rims are with all-new manufacturing process and method to make the carbon fiber bicycle rim stronger, so if you are after stronger rims, Pro rims would be a good choice. Let me know what more do you like to know about our products, happy to help. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi I’ve just ordered some of your 56 mm road wheels Will you be getting UCI approval for your wheels? Thanks Kevin


LightBicycle 2019/05/02

Hi Kevin, Thanks for your order! For our RR56C02 road disc wheelset, the wind tunnel test result is really good. Please check below for your reference. https://www.hambini.com/blog/post/bicycle-wheel-aerodynamics-which-one-is-fastest/ ​ For road UCI test, it is actually really easy to pass. Almost of all wheels can pass the test. It is really low test standard. It just need a lab test picture here, then UCI will set it approved. We just sent U45 test pictures to UCI and find it is easy to pass. We do not send any other models to get UCI approval any more. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Dear Sirs and Madames, I am interested in the AM728 rims. I weigh 95kg and am unsure if I need the AM or the EN variant, because I want to build the wheels very lightly. How is it with customs clearance and shipping to Germany? what is there to consider? Thanks and Greetings Ingo von Klot


LightBicycle 2019/05/01

Hi Ingo, For your riding, we recommend you to go for front AM728/rear EN728. It is a good combination 650B wheelset. Do you like rims only? Currently, we provide 2 kinds of shipping methods to Germany for 2 rims. TPD delivery: USD89, tax pre-paid duty, don't need to pay customs tax and VAT cost, 7~12 days roughly for delivery EMS delivery: USD50, need to pay Customs fee if necessary. We will also declare the low value to help you reduce the tax cost, 7~12 days roughly for delivery. Thanks, Lightbicycle

alan 2019/04/29

I have several LB rims in service already and I love them. I'm building a PowerTap rear wheel and would like to be able to swap it between disc and cantilever bikes for training. Can I order RR36C02, RG922 or WR38 with a braking surface? Would this surface require a special friction material? On your website, these 3 rims are available as 24H and 28H. Can I order 32H? Thanks Alan


LightBicycle 2019/04/30

Hi Alan, We can make a non-disc version of RR36C02 & RG922. WR38 non-disc version is currently not available. What kind of riding do you plan to do with the new road wheels? What would the tire width be? I can make some recommendations for you if you like. And it is okay to order 32H for road non disc rims. Don't worry. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Kaspars 2019/04/29

Hello! Please, help me choose a rim between EN932 and AM935 with following considerations: - I weight 105-108kg; - I ride a hardtail Trail bike; - I ride XC marathon races and XCO cross races with 3-5m long easy jumps, but no enduro/DH; - I would primarily use 29x2.6" tires, sometimes maybe 29x2.8"; - our trails are sandy, loamy and rooty, we don't have rocks on our trails, only some XCO tracks have short and easy handmade rockgardens. To summarize, I'm heavy, ride quite aggressive in easy trails and jumps, and need strong but light rims for amateur competitions. I would like get rims with no nipple holes to be used without tubeless tape, can you do this for those rims? How much is the delivery to Latvia (LV-1050) with TPD? Are you absolutely sure no tax payment will be asked for importing in EU? Best regards, Kaspars


LightBicycle 2019/04/30

Hi Kaspars, 1. Yes, we can make UST(no spoke access hole drilling hole on the rim bed) 29er enduro rims for you. 2. The TPD is tax included yes. But sorry to tell you that Latvia is not covered by TPD routes. Or can you pick up the package from other EU countries that available for TPD? Estonia maybe? Let me know if it's doable for you. If so, pls provide the address information so I can create the invoice for you as TPD is not available online currently. However, we can ship the rims by EMS, and lower the declared value on the customs documents, will this work for you? Usually, we put USD110 for two rims. 3. EN932 is the strongest rim we now offer online. It's only 500g+/-15. Very light for a strong rim like this. Or you can go with AM935 since you don't do any DH. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Graham, For rim depth information, you can see it on the rim specs or rim drawing. Please find as below. For lead time, we have to check which road disc rims/wheels you like. If we have them in stock, we can ship out in 3 days. If not, it takes around 12 days for manufacturing. The delivery takes another 7~12 days to arrive by EMS for TPD delivery. For TPD delivery, it is tax/VAT included. You will not have to deal with customs. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'm interested in a partial wheelset - a rear, build wheel using a WR46CO2 with an onyx hub, sapim CXray spokes. I'll have the front wheel built locally, since I want a dynohub (shutter PDX-8) - if you can build the front wheel, that would be great, but otherwise, can you ship just the rim? I weigh between 65 and 70kg, will use this wheelset for road and gravel with 45-55 tires, was going to go 24 front/rear - what do you think? Can you price it for me? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2019/04/24

Hi Lee, Yes, it is okay to only order rear wheel road disc. For Shutter PDX-8 dynamo hub, What color do you like? 32H? How about the axle size you want? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Colin 2019/04/22

Hello, I am living in the USA and am wondering if it is better to order from the "North America" buying option, rather than the "global", as... we are at war (I hope you understand my humor!, American humor is strange, I know). But seriously, I am concerned that because of the current political situation, it might be better to purchase from the North America option, can you advise? My friend has purchased many of your products, and speaks very highly of them. Sincerely, Colin P. Rooney


LightBicycle 2019/04/23

Hi Colin, You don't have to worry about the trade policy between our countries. It won't really affect our orders. Currently, the shipping remains the same condition as usual. Takes about 7~10 days for delivery, USD50 for two rims, USD78 for one wheelset. We usually declare the items with a lower value so you can pay less or none tax. Normally we put USD110 for 2 bike rims, USD220 for one bikewheelset. On the other hand, you can purchase the items from our North American warehouse, but we only have an inventory of popular specs. What is great with NA warehouse is that you can get the rims/wheels (if in stock) quicker and with tax covered. But note that the price will be different from Global even for the same item. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Han, Brake surface was added to the rim before molding and mold with the rim. So you cannot only change the brake surface. Sorry to tell you that. If your wheel still in the warranty period, you can reach out to Gaint for warranty. If your warranty is due, maybe you can find something close to the rim you have from our product collections as a replacement. Our carbon road rim brake surface is very durable, we have two options for you to choose from The High TG brake surface and the grooved Graphene surface . Let me know if you are interested. Our carbon fiber bike rims are with fair price. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I'm looking to buy a set of carbon wheels for my gravel bike later this year. While I like your website and selecting a wheel build is easy to do, you should think about adding a "gravel bike" category in the "shop" menu. For example, I would like to build up a set of carbon wheels in 11 sp Shimano road configuration, but with wider 29er rims - but the rims are only offered in the MTB menu.


LightBicycle 2019/04/13

Hi Neil, We do have rims/wheels for gravel bikes, but we put it under the road bike category currently. We would consider your suggestion very carefully. Thank you for the feedback. Some of our customers do use the XC925 and RM29C06 as their gravel bike wheels. But we do also have some wider road rims for gravel rims. RR56C02 road gravel bike wheels for instance, it's with 30mm wide, 56mm deep. We also plan to launch a new series of road rims in May (the Falcon Pro) with a wider profile and new technology applied. You can check out the new rims later on. Attaching with rim profiles for your ref. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I purchased these rims: http://www.light-bicycle.com/Hookless-carbon-650B-mtb-35mm-wide-AM-27-5-rims-tubeless-compatible.html in November 2014 and I have loved them! Unfortunately, my rear rim cracked near the valve stem. I'd like to replace it with an EN728 rim. I don't expect you to simply replace the rim, but can you offer any kind discount? The alternative rim I'm considering is the DT Swiss XM481, which is on-sale for <$100 shipped, making it a difficult decision. Thanks!


LightBicycle 2019/04/10

Hi Jeff, Yes, we can offer you a discount for your replacement 27.5 bike rim EN728. I understand that you are bouncing between our carbon rim EN728 and aluminum rim 1. Carbon rims are usually more durable and stiff than aluminum rims. 2. We extended our standard warranty from 1 year to 3 years now. 3. Light Bicycle offers excellent after-sell service for every individual customer, big brands more intended to put their focus on product development or team customers. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, Is the WRU55C02 an updated version of the WR56C02? Is teh WRU55C02 stocked in the North America warehouse? Because I am located in Canada, it seems easier for shipping. Also how do I specify it to be built with the Grooved Graphene Surface? Thanks, Sam


LightBicycle 2019/04/06

Hi Sam, For RRU55C02, it is 25mm wide/55mm deep, aero shape. For RR56C02, it is 30mm wide/56mm deep, it is more gravel optimized aero shape. This rim is wide, you have to make sure that your caliper is wide enough. For our North America warehouse, there only are disc version there. If you like rims with graphene brake surface, you have to order from global warehouse here. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Onyx has recently announced their brand new MTB hubs and will be taking pre-orders in the next week or two. I spoke with them and they said pre-orders will also be available to you at Light Bicycle at the same time and to contact you directly. I would like to pre order/order new wheels built up from you with the new Onyx hubs. Really hoping to get on this order ASAP as I know they will be in high demand and want to make sure my order is one of the earliest ones fulfilled when the hubs go into production. How would I go about doing this? I am in California and would be ordering from the North America division and have a pretty solid idea of the configuration I want. Please advise. Thanks, -Bo


LightBicycle 2019/03/28

Hi Bo, Yes, it is okay to preorder our bike wheels with Onyx hubs. I will have our US team contact you ASAP. Thanks, Lightbicycle

For your Recon PRO 29er rim, you state the ERD is 594mm (not including nipple head dimension). Does that mean the diameter of the inside of the rim without drilliing? If I used a traditional external nipple would the ERD be about 4 mm more? Thanks, Andy


LightBicycle 2019/03/28

Hi Andy, You can check out below sketch to get a better idea about our ERD calculation. Here's an example for ERD calculation: The rim ERD is 583mm not including nipple head dimension. It is 633- 28*2(rim depth)+2*3mm(spoke hole wall thickness)= 583mm. And you are right, if you are using traditional way to calculate the ERD, you will have to add 4mm to it. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Jason 2019/03/25

Hi, I currently live in Houston in United States and I'm considering to purchase a set of light bicycle rims. If I purchase, I would like to ship to South Korea where my family lives. Because of South Korean custom issues, I was wondering if you can do me a little favor of marking the value of rimset little bit lower of $170(tax is charged on all products over usd $180) which is originally about $330. Hope to hear your positive respond with my situation. Thank you!


LightBicycle 2019/03/26

Hi Jason, We certainly can help you with declaring bike rims at lower value . We usually put USD110 for two rims. I think it will meet your needs perfectly. You can leave the request to the message box when you checkout. Or I can create the invoice for you if you like. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, When ordering from USA, are the wheelsets subject to US import tariffs? Thanks. Jeff


LightBicycle 2019/03/25

Hi Jeff, Here's what you need to know about shipping from our North America warehouse. 1. The warehouse located in the border between US and Canda. Technically in Canada. 2. The price for North America items is tax/brokage fees included. 3. North America warehouse only stock the popular items with standard specs. What item are you interested in? 4. If the bicycle rims/wheelset you want is not available in NA warehouse, you can order it from our Global warehouse. What we usually do to make our customers pay less tax/tariff is to lower the declared value on the customs documentation. USD220/wheelset and USD110 for two rims. Will this work for you? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Alex 2019/03/18

Hi there! I'm really really excited about buying a Light Bicycle wheelset but I'm stuck on which rims to go with! I am aggressive 70kg rider and do a mix of all mountain and enduro. I will definitely go for the DT 240s straight pull hubs with 54t ratchet, and for reference I am currently running 30mm internal aluminium rims with 2.5" tyres. I am currently choosing between the Recon EN728 and Recon RM650BC05HD. It looks like the weight on these is the same (454g vs 455g) but according to the rim comparison page the EN728 is the same impact strength but much stiffer (13.5 side, 10.7 vert vs 12.2 side, 7.8 vert). Is this analysis correct? I am happy to go with the 28mm internal rim if it is stiffer. Total wheelset weight and price are very similar so I am just looking to get the best result! It also looks like the EN728 is in stock currently so it would be great to take advantage of the very short lead time. Thank you very much for any help.


LightBicycle 2019/03/18

Hi Alex, Yes, our comparison figures were scale relatively according to our lab testing data. The EN728 is more stiff. Actually, we have only last two EN728 650B rims in stock, they are with UD, matte, 32H. Are the specs ok with you? I can reserve the rims for you in case it sold to others. Their weights are 454g and 462g. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, I'd like to buy one wheelset. Is Tax-Prepaid delivery to Germany possible and can you assure I wont have to pay any taxes then? What is the shipping cost with TPD? And could you please send me a picture of the following rim (or a similar one) with white and with stealth decals: WRU45C02. Thank you in advance.


LightBicycle 2019/02/19

Hi Fritz, 1. Yes, we can ship to Germany by TPD (Tax-Prepaid Delivery). The tax is already included to the shipping cost, so yes, you don't have to pay for the import tax on your side. The shipping cost would be USD156 for one wheelset to Germany. Let me know the rims/wheelset that you want to order so I can create an invoice for you considering the TPD is not available online currently. 2. We sent photos for WRU45C02 with stealth and white decal for your reference. It is sent to your email. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Fuad 2019/02/18

Hi, I am interested in purchasing a WR46C02 wheelset. I understand this rim is designed for disk brakes but is it ok/safe to build it with rim brakes? If it is, do you recommend the graphene or high TG resin brake surface? Also, do you still provide sapim double square or dt swiss SQUORX nipples as on option?


LightBicycle 2019/02/19

Hi Fuad, Yes, we do have WR46C02 road wheelset with rim brake track. At global ship, When you choose hubs with front 100mm*QR/ rear 130mm*QR, these are non disc hubs, and the rims will be with rim brake track surface. 1. Below is the difference between the two brake track for your reference. I would recommend the Grooved Graphene surface for it's better braking performance. High TG Surface: Rim Brake 700C road rims use an advanced High TG resin system with a layer of graphene to help dissipate heat. The braking power and reliability is significantly improved over a basalt braking surface. Grooved Graphene Surface: Our new resin system and construction method, combined with the 3k rim track, withstands over 280°C, dissipates heat, and lowers rim temperatures faster in between braking efforts. Gain confidence-inspiring brake performance on the steepest descents and wettest conditions with our matching brake pads. Also, graphene added to the rim brake track allows for greater resistance to overheating with improved heat dissipation and reduced temperature accumulation during heavy braking. The grooved track helps evacuate trapped moisture between pad and rim in wet conditions and brings more resistance and force at the lever when conditions are dry. 2. Yes, we do still provide Sapim Dboule square nipples and DT Squorx nipples. I can mark your request to the order if you like. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Brian 2019/02/15

Quick wheelset question. I'm looking at the 29" EN932 vs EN933 rim. EN932 is listed at 500g and the EN933 is listed at 510g. Complete Wheelset Build: -Hope Hubs (boost front and rear. XD driver) -Sapim D Light Spokes I've "built" the wheelsets using identical builds (hub and spoke choice) using both the EN933 and EN932 rims. My issue is this: With EN932 the wheelset comes in at 1755g With EN933 the wheelset comes in at 1835g How can there be such a difference if the only thing changed out is the rim? The rims are listed as only having a 10g difference between them. Should be a 20g difference, not a 80g difference. So, which do you think is the accurate measurement? Trying to decide between the two wheelsets, but I don't want the weight to sway me towards the EN932 if one of those measurements isn't accurate. If I'm a 205lb, aggressive rider, is it worth the extra $242 to go with the EN932 build or is the EN933 more than up to the task? I'm using CushCore, so I'm not too worried about rim strikes. Thank you for any info you can give me on this. Brian


LightBicycle 2019/02/15

Hi Brian, EN932 29er wheelset is just released on website and thank you for you help to find out the weight problem. We just have our website administrator to work on the caculator and solve the problem ASAP. AM933/EN933 wheelset weight is correct. For EN932 wheelset, it is just 20g lighter than EN933 wheelset. Sorry for the confusion. For recon and recon pro difference, you can check on below link. Recon rims are with new technologies, more duralbe and longer warranty service. https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/differences-briefings-for-recon-pro---recon.html Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I can't see Romania in the list of countries for delivery. Can items be delivered here? If yes, how much would the shipping cost be? Thanks

Hi Jozsef, Thanks for your inquiry! It is okay to ship rims/wheelset to Romania by DHL delivery. The shipping cost is USD90 for 2 rims by DHL delivery, and USD135 for one wheelset shipping cost. Which rims or wheelset are you interested in? Then we can quote accordingly and work on invoice accordingly for your purchase. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Angus 2019/02/06

Hi, I am interested in getting a quote for a 700C carbon clincher wheelset (non disc brake). I had a couple of questions. 1. I was interested in getting a deeper back wheel (46-56mm) and a smaller front (30-36mm). Do you do this and if so which wheels would you normally suggest? 2. I cannot seem to locate the specs for my bikes front and rear axle (it is a Giant TCR advanced 2012/2013 - non disc brake)). Which skewers do I need? 3. The bike does not have disc brakes but the form on your website seems to require me to select either 6 bolt or centerlock. Something seems to have gone wrong! 4. Vale stems - do I need to buy more - presumably enough come with the wheelset? 5. Do you have any further photos of the white/stealth decals on the deep wheel sets. I could only see a couple of photos. 6. I will need shipping to the UAE (Dubai). Is this included in the price? 7. Do you have insurance on the shipping process of the wheels? Kind regards Angus


LightBicycle 2019/02/07

Hi Angus, Thanks for your inquiry! Please find our reply as below. 1. Yes, it is okay to build front RR36C02(28mm wide/36mm deep)/ rear RR46C02(28mm wide/46mm deep). This combination is really popular. May i know your tire width? Then we can check whether there is better wheelset for you. What hubs do you like for your wheelset? DT Swiss 240s or 350? 2. For non disc, the skewers size are front 100mm* QR/ rear 130mm*QR, shimano road 11S 3. I think you pick "disc" version hubs. For non disc, there is no 6-bolt or center lock option. Please choose non disc, front 100mm* QR/ rear 130mm*QR specs for your wheelset. 4. For valve stems, you have to buy two for wheelset. It does not come with wheelset normally, it is not free. So, you just need to buy 2pcs. Then it is enough. 5. Yes, we have white/stealth pictures for road wheels. Please as below for your reference. We are not in office, so can only find pictures on website for your check. When we are back to work on Feb 12th, we can email you more pictures if you like. white decal on rim: https://www.lightbicycle.com/Road-bicycle-rims-30mm-wide-56mm-deep-aero-clincher-road-disc-brake-available.html stealth decal on rim: https://www.lightbicycle.com/Road-bicycle-rims-28mm-wide-46mm-deep-aero-clincher-road-disc-brake-available.html 6. The wheelset price does not include shipping cost. The shipping cost is USD134 for one wheelset to UAE by EMS delivery, and it is USD197 by DHL delivery. DHL is much faster. 7. For shipping, it is under insurance. If the package is lost or get damage during shipping, we can arrange new shipping for you. Don't worry. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi I'm wondering if I can get this wheelset with a 45mm front wheel? and in the lightest rims in there size? Regards Vincent WRU55C02 HUB: DT SWISS 350, QR / 100mm, QR / 130mm, Shimano Road 11S, straight pull, Non Disc, Black, 20H, 24H, 18T SPOKES/NIPPLES: Sapim CX Ray, Aluminium Black RIM: matte, UD ACCESSORIES: white, Add Valve Stem, Add Tubeless Tape, Add Brake Pads


LightBicycle 2019/01/02

Hi Vincent, As you know, LB rims are all handmade, so there's a tolerance weight range to every rim. But we will do our best to make the non-disc RRU45C02 (45mm deep) under 475g. Will this be ok with you? And also, for road bike rims with brake surface, it is not very good to make the rim weight too light. It will affect the braking performance. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Peter 2018/09/24

Hello, I am looking for a price for 2x RR56C02 shipped to the Netherlands. Is it possible more me to build them with DT-Swiss Alpine III spokes? They are 2.0/1.8/2.34 and I will be ordering a 20h front rim and 24h rear rim. These are for track wheels so no braking forces (except pedaling backwards) and I'm trying to build as stiff as possible. I think I had read one of your comments that there will be deeper versions of this model soon. Will it be before end of 2018 and do you know which depths will be offered? Also with the 23 internal width is it possible to use Continental 4000s ii in 23mm or 25mm because they end up being much larger than their stated sizes. On narrower rims the 23's become around 25mm and the 25's around 28mm. I am also debating custom graphics. I can provide the vector image files to use and it will just be 1 colour. Do you still do the permanent graphics under the clear coat? I don't want vinyl. Please let me know the cost with and without. Thank you Peter


LightBicycle 2018/09/25

Hi, Peter 1. Sorry that we cannot purchase the spokes you ask for (DT-Swiss Alpine III ).Most people use bladed spokes for the aerodynamics. Would you care to share the reason why you want to use the DT Alpine III spokes in particular? If you prefer round spokes, we do provide DT Swiss spokes like DT competition race and DT competition spokes. Will these spokes work for you? We can discuss more by mail. 2. The measurements of our rims are quite accurate. the mold tolerance must around +/-0.15mm, tolerance for complete rims is +/-0.2mm. Else the rim won't pass the QC. So if you buy a 23mm wide rims, you will get a 23mm rim with a limited tolerance. You can come back to us if the width is out of the range. 3. Yes, we still make custom waterslide decals for our customers. It's about USD78 for one or two colors. Do you mind to send me the sketch so I can quote accordingly? 4. We don't have the plan to make a deeper version rim for RR56C02 (30mm wide, 56mm deep) yet. Do you have any suggestion on this? Would you care to share with us so we can see if it's dorable? Thanks Lightbicycle

Lance 2018/09/18

Hello, I really like the new compare button, but what is the difference between AM and Enduro?


LightBicycle 2018/09/19

Hi, Lance Glad to hear that you like our new changes. Regarding your inquiry about the difference between the AM version and EN version. The main difference between AM and EN is that enduro version is with some more carbon fiber material added, it will be stronger for big riders or who rides aggressively. Which rims are you interested in? If you don't have anything in mind yet. Maybe we can make some recommendations for you if you like. First of all, I need to learn more about your riding to know what rims/wheels are good for you. We can discuss further etails by mail. 1. Are you an aggressive rider or heavy rider? If so, the enduro version (or Heavy Duty in some models' case) will be a better fit for you. 2. What tire width you use? 3. What is the terrain you mostly ride on? Thanks Lightbicycle
