I Need A New Dh Rim, Any Suggestions.

Postby lukenewguy on Sun 7/Jun/09 3:21pm

i ride an 06 stab supreme, (yes the ones with the orange mtx rims.) but when i bought the bike the rear rim had been replaced with a white pimplite, after a crash. i have been riding that fine then lend my bike to my brother who cases a jump and creates a massive flat spot on the rim like 10cm long and also cracks the rim which is now well and truly toast, he has agreed to replace the rim and pay for all building fees, but i now the the issue of what to replace the rim with, any suggestion would be great. As well, as if any one has a strong dh rim for sale please give me a post with details. 32 hole

I have a pair of Mavic 729s I could sell.
Can't have non-matching wheels now can ya?
Unlaced it in the summer and was running straight if I remember rightly.
Rear has a couple small flatspots though.

Only problem would be number of spokeholes, it's a 32 hole.

Get a FUNN descender, really strong, a bit heavy but they're really good if you want something that will last for ages without needing truing.

If it's any consolation it was on a hardtail and I'm a muppet who likes to land on rocks.
Full sus might be easier on it.
The front one is dentless.
Only had 150mm travel forks and went through the same rocks.

I'm not asking much for them.
