    Strengths:    Strong light rims that stay true. Work well with Stans Tubeless

    Weaknesses:    None so far

    Bottom Line:   
    This review is for the 650b version of this rim 32 Hole. I use these for there intended use. X country and some all mountain. I built this rim up as a rear wheel with a WTB Super Duty Hub 12mm x 135mm and DT Double Butted spokes. It has stayed true for 1 year of steady riding and besides scratches on the spartan decals no damage. I run the wheel tubeless with Stans yellow Tape and valve with Stans goo and they air up easily with stock Kenda Nevegal 2.35 tires

    Strengths:    Lightweight. Set up nicely with Stan's for tubeless.

    Weaknesses:    Soft. I have a few dents on my rims from hitting the rocks with pressure that was a tad low. I was surprised to see the dents, but they have held up since then.

    Bottom Line:   
    I got these in a 28 hole version to make my bike a lot lighter. It worked. They are mounted tubeless with Neo Moto 2.3's front and back. I keep the tire pressure at 28 PSI now because of what happened the 2'nd time I rode them. They have been treating me well since then and I feel that they are stiff enough to keep up the fight. I had to get them trued and tensioned once after a couple of rides, but they have not moved since then. I am sure that the dents were my fault, but I was still surprised to see them.

    Velocity Blunt SL Tubeless troubles.

I bought an orange seal conversion kit off Jenson wanting to support a local company (Austin) and it did not work. Every time I went to fill up the tire with air I would hear the beads p ...

    wet red rims 29" 32h, Velocity Blunt SL classic red anyone?

    I plan to build an all red wheel set, but not anodized. Velocity stopped producing the Blunt SL rim in classic red. I could not find anything in the web. Do you know of any left stock Blunts or other types of wet red rims in 32 holes and 29". It should suit a lightweight CC rig. [ATTACH=C ... Read More »

    Blunt SL 650b

    I have about 200 miles on my Blunt SL's. The rear rim is getting trashed. All single track cross country here in Massachusetts with rocks and roots. The rear rim has 5 big dings and a few minor dings. Running 2.3 Neo Motos front and back. Front is perfect, but the rear is not. Tubeless with no ... Read More »

    Blunt SL

    I just bought a pair of Blunt SL 650b rims with 28 holes. I have a Prophet with a Lefty, so I know what front hub I'll use, but I am wondering what hub to use for the rear. Lots of hubs come with 32 drillings, but not so many choices in 28 unless I decide to spend a fortune. Is the SRAM X.9 r ... Read More »
