What wheels would you recommend? Recreational/fitness riding only. Looking for durability, stability, decent shock absorption and long life. Speed is a secondary concern since I’m an admittedly slow rider and not getting any faster as I age. Currently ride mostly hills since I have two cat 2 climbs right next to where I live. Hope to run more flats in the future but most of my riding is 10-15 kph up and 40-60 kph back down. Weigh 84kg. Running Conti GP 4 season 700 x 28c. Might go to 32mm at some point. Roads are a mix of perfect new asphalt and rough/bumpy/awful chip seal with cattle guards along the way. High gusty crosswinds in the spring to contend with. I was thinking RR3602, 28 hole F&R w/ Sapim CX Ray.

Hi Jim, Thanks for your feedback! More shallow rim profiles are lighter and more stable in crosswinds. And deeper rim profiles are heavier and stiffer. RR36C02 road cyclocross wheelset is suitable for you. It is used for Road/CX/Gravel. Its profile is not too shallow and not too deep, which takes count of lateral stability and radial stiffness. Do you like Onyx hubs or DT Swiss road disc hubs? We can quote accordingly for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

"we’ve created a simple Rim Depth Recommendation Form" - where can I find it?


LightBicycle 2019/06/11

Hi Andrzej, It's not available online currently, could you let me know what kind of bike rim carbon fiber are you looking for? I can make some recommendations according to your profile. A few questions first. 1. What is your weight? 2. What kind of riding and terrain you usually do? Any crosswinds? 3. The tire width you plan to or currently use? 4. Which matters the most for you? aerodynamics, stability, stiffness, and weight? Thanks, Lightbicycle

I an interested in buying some rims. Can you tell me which of your products is closest to the Ibis 942 and Ibis 935 wheels? Thanks!


LightBicycle 2019/03/08

Hi Rick, we have below 29er wheels similar dimension sizes to Ibis ones. AM935mm wheelset(35mm inner/41mm outer): recon pro AM927mm wheelset(27mm inner/33mm outer): recon pro AM928mm wheelset(28mm inner/34mm outer): recon AM933mm wheelset(33mm inner/39mm outer): recon https://www.lightbicycle.com/Hand-built-AM935-asymmetric-rim-profile-carbon-fiber-mtb-29er-wheels.html https://www.lightbicycle.com/Hand-built-AM927-asymmetric-rim-profile-carbon-fiber-mtb-29er-wheels.html https://www.lightbicycle.com/Hand-built-AM928-asymmetric-rim-profile-carbon-fiber-mtb-29er-wheels.html https://www.lightbicycle.com/Hand-built-carbon-AM933-asymmetric-29er-mtb-Enduro-wheels-tubeless-compatible.html For recon pro wheels, it is higher price than recon wheels. It is with new technologies and more durable, and longer warranty service. Please check below link. https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/differences-briefings-for-recon-pro---recon.html Please let us know which you like and the hubs specs. We can quote accordingly for you. Or you can click on " global" button, can click hubs spec, you can get wheelset price and wheelset weight at the bottom of page. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, Are you guys planning on developing pro versions of road falcon rims?


LightBicycle 2019/02/23

Hi Fuad, Yes, we do have the plan to launch the Falcon Pro series. Currently, our engineers from the Falcon Program Team is trying to develop new technology on the road rims. It will be ready in 2 months. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Dustin 2019/04/11

Hello, Is there any update on this plan? The "two months" that you mention above is closing in quickly. Is there possibly a mailing list that I can opt in to for when the Pro is released, so that I can configure something up around that time? Thank you, Dustin.


LightBicycle 2019/04/12

Hi Dustin The new road rims will be available in May or late April. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Alan 2019/04/19

Do you have rim profiles available for the new rims and will there be disc and rim brake versions?


LightBicycle 2019/04/20

Hi Alan, Attaching with the rim profile of our new Falcon Pro series rim for your ref. Note that they are only available in disc version considering its wide profile. It is 32mm wide, it will be too wide for your brake caliper. If it is not wide for you, we can manufacture rim brake version for you. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Marek 2019/01/04

Hello, I am just wondering what kind of ratchet to pick for my XC925 wheelset - 18,36 or 54T. What are the differencies? And also I am not realy familiar with a straight pull spoke head. Would zou recommende it for me and explain it a little bit more. Thanks Marek


LightBicycle 2019/01/05

Hi Marek, The 36t or 54t provides a noticeable amount of extra engagement points which helps when ratcheting your freehub during slow speed technical situations. It will help the wheelset feel more responsive overall. The 18t is more reliable as the grooves are the deepest in the star ratchet, whereas the 54t has the shallowest grooves and the 36t is right in between those 2. If you put out a lot of torque and don't like messing with your equipment, stick with the 18t, but if you want more engagement the 36/54t offer a noticeable performance gain. For mountain bike wheel, J-bend is the most popular option as they are easier to work with and replacements are readily available. Straight pull spokes can be challenging to true because they rotate in the hub flanges as you turn the nipples. Some riders prefer the slight gain in stiffness of straight pull spokes for lower spoke count wheelsets . If you like lighter wheelset, you can go for straight pull mtb xc wheels. Thanks, Lightbicycle
