Terence 2020/08/13

Hello, I currently have a gravel bike with quick release (QR) skewers. If I purchase a wheel set with QR, in the future can they be easily converted to thru axle if I get a different frame?


LightBicycle 2020/08/14

Hi Terence, Normally, they are convertible. You just have to buy the convert kits from QR to 12*100mm/12*142mm. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, my rims have arrived today. thank you what spoke length and which nipples do I need? I read that they can help with this problem. Rear wheel: https://r2-bike.com/DT-SWISS-Hinterradnabe-350-Straightpull-Disc-6-Loch-fuer-12x142-mm-Steckachse-Freilauf-SRAM-XD Front wheel: https://r2-bike.com/DT-SWISS-Vfrontradnabe-350-Straightpull-Disc-6-Loch-15x100-mm- thru axle Rim: 650B EN740 28H centered matte UD sincerely yours best regards Clemens Germann

Hi Clemens, I am glad that the 650B rims arrive safe and sound. Of course, we can make the calculation of spoke lengths for you. The length is 276mm for both the drive side and the non-drive side of the front and wheel. Built with 3X lacing. Thanks, Lightbicycle

hello there I have a flyweight RM29C06 front wheel as my xc race wheel and am looking for another rim to build onto the rear. I race World Cup xc courses so they can be quite technical and I ride a full bus and am 73kg. would I get away with a flyweight for the rear or should I stick with a standard? these are used for racing only. regards Jonte


LightBicycle 2020/01/20

Hi Jonte, Thanks for your reaching out!If you ride technically in XC race, we really recommend rear standard version. It will be more durable and safe for you. You can order front flyweight and rear standard for your 29er XC wheelset, but light hubs. It will make the wheelset weight light. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Do you have spoke count recommendations for rider weights for your road rims?


LightBicycle 2019/12/05

Hi Robert, The stiffness of different rims are different, could you pls let me know your weight/riding style and your ideal road bike rim 700C? I could recommend a suitable spoke count for your ref. Thanks, Lightbicycle

looking to build a wheel set with existing dt240s I am looking at your AR28 rim. I am trying to determine the spoke length with only calculators. Since you offer this option, what spoke length are you using please? thank you


LightBicycle 2019/11/26

Hi Marcus, We can do the spoke calculation for you if you like. Could you please provide the details of your wheel build? And, which DT hub model that you use exactly? Note that our ERD measurement is measured from the nipple bed on one side of the rim to the nipple bed on the other. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I'd like to build a wheelset using your tubeless rims, without rim bed nipple holes. I use 2mm Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples. Do you recommend a magnetic nipple insert for assembling the nipples? Does one of the Fulcrum Racing tools fit 2mm nipples? This will be my second Light Bicycle wheel build this year. Excellent product! Thank you, Jim


LightBicycle 2019/10/26

Hi Jamies, We published a little article around tubeless rims 700c . Also mention the wheel building tips, you can check it out at https://www.lightbicycle.com/newsletter/TUBELESS-READY-OR-TUBELESS-RIMS--WHAT-S-BEST-FOR-ME.html . And, you are right, you should use magnetic nipples. Please let me know exactly what specs you looking for buying, Do you like 700C disc or non disc rims? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Kendall 2019/10/17

I just purchased a pair of WR50 rims and noticed you have an ERD that does not consider the nipple. I plan to use the standard Sapim 16mm nipples you use and recommend. What is the proper adjustment to the ERD with that rim and nipple combination that I would put into a spoke length calculator? Thanks.


LightBicycle 2019/10/18

Hi Kendall, Nipples with standard heads - Most online calculators can use our standard ERD dimension to get an accurate spoke length. Round up to the nearest mm when the calculator gives you the spoke length. Nipples with raised heads (Hex, Squorx, Double Square etc.) - Add 2mm to our ERD dimension. Round up to the nearest mm when the calculator gives you the spoke length. Or you can let us know your hubs specs on WR50 32mm wide wheelset, then we can get the spoke length accordingly for your reference. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I own RRU35C02 rims with grooved graphene brake track. Which direction should the grooves face, with closed end or open end toward the direction of rotation?


LightBicycle 2019/07/31

Hi Tim, We sent the instruction through email to you. And we will take your advice and add it in our user guide ASAP. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Tim 2019/10/24

salve posso sapere se ci sono spese doganali??


LightBicycle 2019/07/05

Hi Rino, Where would be your destination of shipping? If you purchase from our Global warehouse, there will be customs fees in most cases. But what we usually do is to lower the declared value so you can pay less tax. There is also TPD delivery. It is tax included, you will not have to pay tax. For TPD delivery, it is USD89 for 2 rims and USD155 for one wheelset. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Rick 2019/04/28

What does weight limit mean? Total weight of bike and rider on two wheels or weight limit per wheel?


LightBicycle 2019/04/29

Hi Rick, The weight limit refers to the rider weight without gear. What's your weight? If you are a heavy rider and worry about the weight limit or wheel strength, we can customize a heavy duty version for your profile. Don't you worry about it. What rims/wheels you got your eyes on? Could you tell me more about your profile so I can make some recommendations for you? Or check if the rims/wheels are a good fit for you. Do you like road rims/mtb wheels 29er? Thanks, Lightbicycle
