To complete my dream bike build, I needed a high-end pair of carbon wheels.
After long hours of research and comparison, my choice is focused on the Light Bicycle’s RM29C19 : super light, adapted to my weight (very important), and reasonably priced. I build up the wheels myself, the tensioning was done very easily and the finish of the rims was perfect.
I have ridden the wheels for four years on almost all types of terrain.
Since August 2015, I ride them around the Paris countryside through all of the seasons. The terrain is varied and the rides are anywhere from 50km to 90km, sometimes even upwards of 120km. I have a preference for the forest of Fontainebleau and that of Ermenonville which has a lot of singletracks.
I’ve also done some 24h events and the Granit'Montana near Limoges which is 70km and has 3km of descending!
The rims are really great.
When I decided to switch to carbon rims, I knew they would be a little better than my old alloy wheels. Yet, these carbon wheels went well beyond my expectations. For four years, I have really enjoyed these, and now for my next pair - a set of AR28 rims for my Ritchey Swiss Cross!
