65mm wide like Large Marge, Marge Lite shaves a lot of weight over regular Marges while retaining torsional stiffness. This rim, like our Rolling Darryl and Clown Shoe rims, utilizes a 64 dual-spoke hole pattern. Lace 32 holes all on one side when building for frames with offset, such as our Pugsley and Moonlander. Lace 32 holes skipping side to side for non-offset frames or forks.
Strengths: The lightest readily available fatbike rim currently. A really good bead that gives a definite "pop" when setting them up tubeless. Single wall so no holes to block up when setting up tubeless. Very strong and now come in funky colours.
Can be bought for under $130 each and set up as tubeless beautifully and holds your tyre secure at low pressures. Weighing in at around 690g they are currently the lightest fat rims available. I am waiting on my second set of rims to arrive anyday now and will be built up to fit 4" tyres as my others Marge Lite wheelset have 4.8" fitted.
Bought one of the last NOS Leftys that MCS got from Cannondale. Frame is on the block so now the fork has to go!

What should spoke tension for Marge Lites be? The default tension I have always heard about, and used with good success, is 100kgf.
I did some searching before posting and could not find any info. Plus, I figured the dedicated fat bike forum would be more informative than the wheel building forum ... Read More »
