Michael : Hello Grace! The time has come - the cyclocross season is in the starting blocks! And finally I can race my wheels, which I built in May With "Flyweight" carbon rim from Light Bicycle, Newmen hubs and SAPIM CX-Ray spokes, I've built a super lightweight wheelset of 1124g! It was really fun, the rims are very fine and precisely made, in the end I was almost sad when the wheels were finished, since building was so much fun! :-) But with the wheels on the Crosser, the fun really goes on: The Crosser can accelerate really cool with these wheels; It is noticeably better to accelerate out of the curves and even in the terrain it's really like flying over the trails.” Thanks an Best Regards

David : A few pics of my Salsa Warbird v3 gravel bike. The wheelset is the LB 46mm deep, 29mm wide and 22.5mm internal hookless carbon rim, 24 straight pull Sapim CX-Ray spokes f+r, brass nipples laced to Hope RS4 Hubs. I love these wheels. They make the bike look the biz in my humble opinion. But more importantly the bike rides amazing with these wheels and it just begs to go fast on off-road gravel decents, with nearly 70kph my record so far! I have fitted 40mm Schwalbe G-One Allrounds which measured 42mm at 35psi which were good. The wheels are currently wearing 38mm Paneracer G-King's tanwalls which measure exactly 38mm when you first set them up but eventually puff up to 40.5mm at 35psi! The groupset is Shimano Ultegra R8000 mechanical and has the RX805 rear clutch mech. I wanted proper off-road 2x sub-compact gearing, and a power meter. So my choice was the PraxisWorks Zayante Direct Mount crankset with 4iiii Power Meter and 48-32 Levatime chainrings. As I live in the UK, and although we don't really have big mountains, very little of the UK is flat, especially where I live near the Peak District, and so I need all the help I can get. I have taken advantage of the fact that the latest generation Shimano rear mechs will work with a lot bigger cassettes than they officially recommend and without mech extenders. I fitted an XT M8000 11-40 mtb cassette for excellent climbing capability when I have the bike fully loaded with bikepacking luggage. The chain is a KMC X11 SL Gold chain. For the cockpit I have a Salsa flared carbon Cowbell bar fitted to the brilliant Redshiftsports Shockstem. It gives an extra bit cushion from 20mm of vertical movement! I forgot to mention the Hope RX4 Brake Calipers and Hope rotors which are unbelievable with their wet conditions stopping power! Get these setup correctly and they are awesome and give me more modulation and power from than my Shimano mtb brakes. As I have some extra cushion up front I wanted the same at the rear so another awesome product from Ergon with their CF3 seatpost is fitted which gives up to 30mm fore-aft movement and helps reduce fatigue from vibration. My current saddle is the carbon railed Fabric Scoop shallow pro. I'm still looking for a saddle that is "comfortable" all day after 10hrs! My bottle cages are KingCage/Woolftooth Morsecage Titanium. The headset is a Cane Creek carbon. Peadals are Look S-track with custon titanium spindles with ceramic bearings. All bolts used titianium where possible. Well I think that's most of it so I hope that everyone likes it as much as I do and appreciate me posting the build spec. If you have any questions then fire away. Thanks.

Rob : I ride light-bicycle-rims for about 4 years in 27,5“ and 29“. In this time there was no defect at any LB-rim. I think this is a very good result, because I ride park also as alpine hiking trails. Especially there are many stones and rocks that permanently bump against the rim.

Christopher : Turner King Khan, XT drivetrain-11/46 cassette, Raceface SL G4 cranks w/Wolftooth 30T, FOX Transfer dropper. Running the 26 x 85mm Fat Bike hoops with Onyx Hub and this set up cut 1.2 lbs off the bike! I'm in Connecticut, ride my fatty year round on mostly technical single track , (I actually don't ride my XC bike unless the fatty is on the DL), Solid performance and excellent tech support! Thanks

Steven : The fly weight 30mm internals were amazing this season! I used these wheels for all 10 races in the MASS (mid Atlantic super series) and finished 3rd overall in the series. Looking forward to getting another set next year hopefully even lighter weight?!

James : Just wanted to let you know that my wheels arrived on time and everything was in good order. I fitted them immediately and have now ridden 250km or so, over 5 rides, with no problems whatsoever. In fact I’m really DELIGHTED with them, as I’m enjoying a very noticeable speed advantage (also helped by new Conti 5000 tyres) and I’ve had no issues with handling or braking, albeit riding only in good weather so far. They also look fabulous, top quality wheels both on and off the bike.
