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!

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

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

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

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
