Kevan 2022/05/05

Hello, I'm trying to confirm spoke lengths for my rear wheel. Could you please assist in calculating the lengths needed? See below for wheel information: - Rim = Falcon Pro Rim AR45 700c/28mm - External hole rim - Hub = DT Swiss 350 Straight Pull, 142mm axle width, 24 Hole, Disc Brake Center Lock - Spoke lacing = 2-cross - Spoke nipple = DT Pro Lock Standard Brass 14mm Thank you!

Hi Kevan, We just caculated the spoke length of AR45 700C disc wheels with DT 350 road disc hubs, and emailed you. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I have a Specialized Allez smartweld e5 2016 frame with a maximum recommended tire size of 28 and would like to know if you have any experience on compatibility with the falcon pro wheelset, since it's width is 30mm. Thank you! Juliano De Bortoli.


LightBicycle 2022/05/03

Hi Juliano, Is the new AR565 the rim 700C you are interested in? There are 2 factors concerned with the compatibility of the wheel, The clearance of the fork and seat stays, and the limitation of the calipers. So, can you confirm the clearance and model of your calipers for me? The 30mm of AR565 is on the widest area (middle) of the rim. The wheel should be ok to mount on the calipers if the limitation is suggested 28mm. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Would you kindly calculate the spoke lengths I need to build a pair of wheels with your WR65 rims, both front and rear. Hubs are DT Swiss 240 EXP, straight pull, center lock; the same as you sell on complete wheelsets (12 x 100 front, 12 x 142 rear). Other details: 24 hole, 2 cross External nipples: Sapim Polyax, 14 mm alloy Sapim CX-Ray spokes Thank you for your help, -Steve


LightBicycle 2022/04/28

Hi Steve, We just sent the spoke length caculation result to your email for WR65 road disc wheelset. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi guys, Can you build wheelsets with the new 'Road Boost' spacing of 12x110 / 12x148? As far as I can see, only DT and Roval are currently offering complete builds in this standard. DT have 350 hubs in this standard available. Regards, Gee


LightBicycle 2022/03/14

Hi Gee, Thanks for reaching out! We have sent you an email about road boost hubs. Please check. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Michael 2022/03/03

Hi... Am looking at purchasing a completed Mtn Bike wheelset for my existing hardtail. Mainly for amatuer XC, but also occasional bike packing. Price is a reasonable consideration, but so is light-weight. Am looking at either the RM29C06 or XC925. Some notes/questions below. Can you advise please: # I am 70kg & bike packing gear only adds 5kg. # Hubs must be QR & compatible to shimano disc (front could be 110 through-axle if need be). # Free-wheel for standard Shimano 10spd. # Can you price the lightest option in both these rims please? # And can you also suggest/price a good value for money trade-off between weight & price in both rim options please. Thanks.


LightBicycle 2022/03/03

Hi Michael, 1. The RM29C06 29er bike rim carbon fiber would make the lightest option. It's been one of our lightest and most popular rims since we introduced it to the market many years ago. It's from the Recon lineup, which is more cost-friendly 2. As for the hubs, DT SWISS would be easier to convert between sizes if needed. No special tools are required. But Carbon Ti hubs would make super lightweight wheels. But the conversion would be more difficult than DT hubs. We recommend converting the hubs to a bike shop if you are not equipped for it. Note that both DT and Carbon-Ti hubs have limits for conversion between sizes. 3. Please confirm if the hub size you want is 15QR(15/100), and 12QR(12/142). Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, looking for spoke recommendations for length. I am building light bicycle 27.5 30mm 32 hole rims to hope pro 4 boost 32 hole hubs.


LightBicycle 2022/02/21

Hi Peter, Thanks for reaching out! Can you confirm the rim model to me so I can send you the spoke lengths? We have a few models with 30mm internal and external 27.5 rims 650B available. If you are not sure about the rm model, just send me the serial number on the rim bed, and I will check the rest for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'm trying to change out the wheels on my Vado SL to the same set up another guy has. This is what he posted - of what his wheel set up is. Do you have these? How much are two? Front and rear - Can tubeless be put on them and what is the max tire width size. ?? Thanks so much for your help! Cindy Wheels: Light Bicycle carbon rims, i30mm, DT Swiss 350 hubs. Tires: Panaracer GravelKing SK 27.5 x 1.9. These measure 53mm (almost 2.1”) at 30psi on the i30 rims and have plenty of clearance in the fork, seatstays, and chainstays.


LightBicycle 2022/02/19

Hi Synde, Thanks for reaching out! We have 2 models with 30mm external width, which would be your pick? AM724: Recon series, 24mm internal/30mm external, 24mm deep, 385g+/-15 each https://www.lightbicycle.com/AM724-asymmetric-rim-profile-carbon-650b-mountain-bike-rims.html XC725: Recon series, 25mm internal/30mm external, 25mm deep, 285g+/-15 for the flyweight version rim, 345g+/-15 for the standard version rim https://www.lightbicycle.com/XC725-asymmetric-rim-profile-carbon-650b-carbon-rims-mtb.html Have a nice day!

Luke 2022/02/16

Hey mate Do you guys offer any 23mm wide tubular road rims? I would be looking for between 30-45mm depth. These would need to be symmetrical as they would be on track bike. No braking surface (disc brake) too. Thank you so much and have an awesome day, Luke


LightBicycle 2022/02/16

Hi Luke, Thanks for reaching out! Yes, we do have 23mm wide Tubular rims 700C available. Will 38mm deep work for you? You can proceed with the order via email later when we settle all the details. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Eric 2022/01/30

Hello, I am having a difficult time choosing between the R45 and AR45. I intend to run 700x28 or 700x30 tires with rim brakes for criterium and road racing. I understand that a wider rim profile generally proves more aerodynamic. My question is: would I benefit more from the toroidal shape of the R45, where the rim is wider (27.5mm) below the brake track (25mm) or from the V-shape of the AR45, where the rim is widest at the brake track (28mm)? Thank you for assistance.


LightBicycle 2022/01/30

Hi Eric, Thanks for your inquiry! For AR45 700C rim, the brake track widest is 28mm, but the rim middle body is with 30mm. it your bike wide enough? Is it your brake caliper wide enough for 28mm? Thanks Lightbicycle

Azfar 2022/01/14

Hi, I'm using a Cannondale Caad13 and would like to buy the FALCON WHEELSET AR46 DISC 700C Gravel-Optimized-Aero-Shape 46mm depth hand-built carbon road disc wheels - 28mm wide and tubeless compatible. For the rear wheel dishing pattern, which one should I choose? Traditional or Ai offset? If Ai offset is it the 3mm or the 6mm? Kindly advise. Appreciate your help. Thanks


LightBicycle 2022/01/15

Hi Azfar, I checked on the bike specs, there is no offset on frame at all. So, you can choost traditional wheel building. Or you can double check with your bike supplier or call Cannondale to make sure it is correct. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Elia 2022/01/13

hello I'm interested in your wheels but I have a few questions: 1- if I purcase from Italy and I choose TPD payments, it's sure will I not pay any extra money? 2- In the hubs ARC MT-032, is the freehub connected with pawls or ratched system like DT SWISS? 3- Probably I will buy falcon wr35 model, I'm 70 kg and I will use the wheels mainly for cyclocross and gravel. Is it safe to go with flyweight version or the standard will be better?


LightBicycle 2022/01/13

Hi Elia, ​ Please find our reply as below. 1. Yes, if you choose TPD delivery, you will not have to pay any extra cost(like taxes or duties). It is all included. 2. The ARC hubs we get are with the standard pawls, not ratches system. If you like ratches system, you can go for DT Swiss hubs. 3. Do you ride jently or aggressively? For WR35 32mm wide wheelset with standard version, they are with much more carbon fiber material, they will be more durable. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Harrison 2021/12/22

Hello! Just received my rims and they are gorgeous! I purchased the AR56 - 28mm rims and am having trouble calculating the spoke length needed for the rear. Help would be greatly appreciated! Rim = AR56-28mm /w 24 spoke holes Axle width = 130mm L/R center to flange = 41mm, 16.5mm L/R flange diameter = 55mm, 55mm spoke hole diameter = 2mm paired spoke holes 15 degree angle J-bend spokes w/ 14mm standard alloy nipples


LightBicycle 2021/12/22

Hi Harrison, We are happy to hear that you like our AR56 road disc rims 700C. We can calculate the \spoke length for you. I will send you the spoke lengths through email. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Steve 2021/11/04

I’m 72kg and interested in the FALCON PRO AR35 disc rim. Is the featherweight ok for me? How about with 24-hole drilling or is 28-hooe recommended? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2021/11/04

Hi Steve, For your weight 72KG, it is okay to ride flyweight version AR35 road disc rim 700C. Do you ride aggressively or gently? Normally 24H is strong enough. But if you like wheelset to be more stiff and do not mind the wheelset weight, it is okay to get front 24H/rear 28H. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Neil 2021/09/15

Hi, I've been using one of your rims for 2-3 years it's bombproof thank you! I've just got a new bike can you supply a 'Mullet' wheelset? ie 29er front 27.5 rear wheel. I know the world is crazy at the moment so no desperate rush. Cheers Neil


LightBicycle 2021/09/15

Hi Neil, I am so happy to hear that you are satisfied with the previous rims. It is okay to order a mixed mtb wheelset(front 29er/rear 27.5). You can list the order specs here, we can quote accordingly. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Do you offer road wheels with campagnolo body?


LightBicycle 2021/09/06

Hi Teun, Yes, we do have hubs that featured with the campy freehub body for road wheels 700C. What hubs do you want to build with? disc or rim brake? Please let me know the model so I can check the inventory and availability accordingly. Thanks, Lightbicycle
