Anyone Using Velocity P35 Or Blunt 35 Rims?

Postby pushbikerider on Sat 20/Jul/13 5:29pm

Hey Team

Looking at some new rims for the trail bike, and I noticed that the Velocity Blunt 35 looked like a great option

is anyone out there using them? if so how have you found them??

hey yup. just done purchased a Blunt 35 and had built up on an old but good nick Revolver for the rear end of my BFe. kindly built up for me by el_booto

Gives a great tire profile, i run a smallish 2.4 (Conti Mtn King) at mo and it seems to grip betterer than ever before. Seems to complement the 29mm internal width front wheel i've got on it too... they seem mighty similar overall width. So far. Stiff, strong feeling and tracks nicely.

oh, the one thing i was surprised by, is they dont come with spoke nipple inserts. just nipple on rim. hoping that it's gonna be an issue, which, it shouldnt do...

Cheers for that. Yes I had noticed that they aren't eyeleted, but I'm not too stressed about it. I've seen eyeleted rims fail as well as non eyeleted ones

I presume that the conti you are running on the back is the older mountain king (diamond patern, quite small for marked size) not the new high volume mountain king (larger casing volume, sqaurer patern)

Are you runing a Mavic 729 (D321) up front??

no, a quick google shows me i'm running the mark2... but it's not a big 2.4, in my mind...

Can't help sorry, but the more I ride my 38's (32 inner) on my 26'er the more I like them, and the low pressures u can run, currently 18psi front and rear.
