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

Hi. What cleaning products do you recommend on matte rims? I used one degreaser I got from the shop and it looks like it might have stained the rims.


LightBicycle 2019/04/15

Hi John, The carbon fiber bike rims can be cleaned with a clean rag and any mild degreaser such as Windex®, Simple Green®, or 409®. You can also use Acetone or Isopropyl Alcohol. It is recommended to wear safety glasses and rubber gloves. Make sure your workspace is well ventilated. It is usually easiest to clean your rims when the tires have been removed. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello, I have a 2019 tarmac disc comp, what wheel set would best fit my bike? https://www.specialized.com/us/en/mens-tarmac-disc-comp/p/154557?color=227227-154557 THank you


LightBicycle 2019/03/27

Hi Spencer, Are you still using 26mm*700c tires? We recommend our 25mm wide/35mm deep, disc wheelset for you. Is it okay? Or do you prefer 28mm wide/36mm deep or 46mm deep road disc wheels? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Do you recommend for or against using nipple washers inside the rim bed?


LightBicycle 2019/03/13

Hi Kj, We don't have a stand on this matter. The fact is that we do not use nipple washers here for building wheels considering the spoke holes’ wall strength is strong enough. Our engineers cover this when they design our rims, and the spoke hole performed very well during the lab test. But if you insist to use nipples, it is okay if you do not mind weight adding. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hello! Does the white sticker with the blue arrow in the rim bed indicate the drive side of the wheel?


LightBicycle 2019/03/09

Hi Simon, Do you have LB bike rims on your hand now? We can't find your order record in our system. Do you have a symmetrical rim or asymmetrical? If it's the symmetrical rim, the left side an right side are identical, so you can build with either side as the drive side. Thanks, Lightbicycle

I just recently bought some LB hoops and I currently have DT Swiss straight pull hubs. There is a disclaimer stating Not to use 2mm spokes. What size straight pull spokes can I use?


LightBicycle 2019/01/29

Hi Jared, As our User Guides indicated, The thickest spokes that can be used on our rims are double butted 2/1.8/2mm. You can check out our video episode "Spokes We Build With" on YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovwoEXuisWM&t=2s Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi - I ordered the EN928 32H matte UD rims and was wondering if there is a right or wrong side to mount the hubs. I noticed and arrow inside the rim does that indicate the drive side? I'm lacing the rims and need to understand if there is a right or wrong side to place the rim. thank you


LightBicycle 2019/01/10

Hi Gary, We got your message on our website. Please check on rim bed and find the rim serial number. From rim serial number, you can find out which side is for free hub side(drive side). Please find attached picture for your reference. For arrow sticker, it is just for the spoke hole angle direction. It does not show which side is for drive side/which side is for non-drive side. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi, I want to reuse some Shimano hubs and spokes in a wheel build but need spoke holes to suit 4.75mm nipples. Is this possible on your RRU35C02 rims? Thanks - Mark H


LightBicycle 2019/01/07

Hi Mark, Do you mean the spoke holes or spoke access holes on rim bed? Do you have your nipples link? Then we can check whether 4.75mm hole size is okay for your hub. What spoke size do you use? Is it 14G or 13G? Is it your bike normal bike or E-bike? Thanks, Lightbicycle
