Hi LB Team, you are stocking also SON 28 Dynamo hubs with 28 spokes and e-through 12mm and is it possible to get a wheel set made with on of these in the front and a DT350 in the back? Thanks for your support, kind regards - Till


LightBicycle 2021/02/08

Hi Till, Thanks for your inquiry. It is okay to build wheelset with front Son 28 Dynamo hub/rear DT Swiss 350 hubs. May i know which wheelset you like? mtb or road disc? Which model? Is it your bike front 15*110mm boost/rear 12*148mm boost? or center lock front 12*100mm/rear 12*142mm? Then i can quote accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

During the winter months I use a wheel-on trainer for workouts. Can I use the falcon wheels in this manner?


LightBicycle 2021/02/05

Hi Kevin, We got your inquiry. What is your bike and your tire width? May i have your riding style and weight please? Then we can check with falcon 700C wheelset is better for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I have a 2018 pivot switchblade which requires rear 12x157Ta superboost spacing. I didn't see any hub options that were that size with any wheel sets I was interested in. My front is 15x110 TA boost. Any suggestions? I would like to keep the budget reasonable and hope for internal wheel space to be at about 131-135 mm. Thanks, Sarge


LightBicycle 2020/11/12

Hi Sarge, Yes, we do have 12/157mm super boost hubs, what brand do you prefer? Hope Pro 4? Industry Nine 1/1, Hydra? Onyx Classic or Vesper? Also, which wheelset mountain bike you like? Then we can quote accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'm buying a Ritchey Breakaway and would like to throw some of your wheels on it. It's going to have a DA 7800 group set on it and I'd like to see what hoops in the 50-65mm range you have. It has clearance for 28mm tires so I'm guessing your 25mm deep wheels would work. If you could get me a total for hoops that'd be great, as I'll be using the Ritchey quick release hub for packing. Thank you.


LightBicycle 2020/08/18

Hi Brandon, We have 25mm wide rim in 55mm and 65mm depth, which depth will you be interested? What are the hubs you want to build the wheelset 700C with? dis or rim brake? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Craig 2020/05/08

Why are the hub costs under the North American Options so much more expensive than for under the Global Options (China warehouse)? I am looking at the Falcon Pro AR46 - 28mm wide wheelset and selecting the DT 240S hub increases the cost by: Global Options: $220 North American Options: $600 The base cost of the wheelset is $107 less under the North American options but the same hub is $380 more. Why the difference?


LightBicycle 2020/05/08

Hi Craig, Yes, the DT hubs are quite different in two warehouses. We purchase DT hubs from DT SWISS in bulk here, so the cost is lower. As for the North America warehouse, we purchase the hubs in a small amount from the DT US branch because some people prefer the faster shipping that Canada warehouse offers. With the tax adding, we really don't have much benefit space. If you are not in a rush, ordering from the Global warehouse would be a better deal. Could you tell me what configurations that you are interested in? Or do you prefer to place the order online by yourself? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Scott 2020/03/11

Can you tell me the difference between Falcon and Falcon PRO wheelsets. Thanks


LightBicycle 2020/03/12

Hi Scott, The production process is different between the Flacon and Flacon Pro series. The Falcon series is made by the traditional process with a high standard quality control management. The Falcon Pro series production process was re-designed from the material, layup, molding to spoke drilling (aviation drill) to make the rims come out of the mold as a finished product. The scratch resistance ability is significantly improved, the rims are also more durable. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Nick 2020/02/05

Hi Jenny, Are any of your rims or wheelsets tested with ebikes (electric motor bikes mid drive)? If so, which wheels in 29er or 700c are strong enough for an ebike? Have you tried a Bafang 750 or 1000 watt motor with your wheels? Thanks


LightBicycle 2020/02/05

Hi Nick, we can customized manufacture the 29er or 700C rims with some more carbon fiber material added, to make them stronger for your E-bike riding. Quite a few customers use our rims on E-bike,they are durable enough. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Jeff 2020/01/25

Hello, I am preparing for a 150km very hilly Gran Fondo (2500 m elevation gain and loss) . I'm new to this level of riding and looking for every bit of help! Do you have advice about what would be the best wheel for this type of ride? I weigh 75 kg and consider myself pretty aggressive (though getting old!). I think it may also be fairly windy in places. I was looking at the AR46 wheels (disc 28mm) - thinking it's a good all around choice. But then there is also the R45 (25mm) which might be stiffer? Any thoughts or suggestions would be most welcome. Also, any updates coming that might be of interest?? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2020/01/26

Hi sir, Thanks for your reaching out! May i know your tire width please? Then we can check whether AR46 28mm wide disc wheels are better or 25mm wide. AR46 wheels are wider and deeper, it is stiffer than R45 25mm wide disc wheels actually. If you prefer stiffer wheels, you can also go for 28H spoke count, or front 24H/rear 28H. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Randy 2019/10/06

Are you able to source straight pull bitex hubs? I would like to use the r55 rim with cxray spokes. If possible I would like a 2 cross for the rear on both left and right sides. I am heavier at 107kg. Or are your stock wheels adequate?


LightBicycle 2019/10/15

Hi Randy, Are you looking for R55 700C wheelset with disc or non disc brake system? Then we can check which straight pull Bitex hubs we can get. For 107KG, it is not a very large rider. Max rider weight limit is 135KG on R55 wheelset. Don't worry. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Seb 2019/09/06

Hi LB Team, I am considering WR38 and WR50 to build a set of wheels, but I am hesitating between both. I would like to have your advice. I am a 87kg rider, doing 8000 km per year from short (50 km) trainings to long (1200km) bike trip. No race. I am looking for a set of wheel that could handle both tyres : - 28mm for fast pace short ride (and a bit of aero gain) - 35mm for long distance bike packing trip (that include some off road tracks). WR50 or WR28 ? Thanks


LightBicycle 2019/09/06

Hi Seb, Thanks for your inquiry. Is there any climb road through your bike trip? If not, you can go for deep wheels(WR50). If there is quite a few climbing area, then go for WR38 to save some weight. And you can go for front 24H/rear 24H for your wheelset. You are not a large rider. ​ Thanks, Lightbicycle
