i'm looking for a strong rim, and this defiantly would be, are there any issues that i would run into with it?
That's probably the strongest rim you can buy, very heavy-duty.

Are you sure you need that much rim?

Anyways, yes, it will work. You can build it up into a very strong wheel.

Soupboy, 29erchico, lilhillbilly, myself. There are others, I just cannot remember who. Heavy, wide, tough, no, bombproof. Hell. Kris Holm rides them on his MUni, have you seen the stuff he does? On one wheel?! :D :thumbsup:

nice, i was thinking of going with the halo spin doctor front hub, since its gold and would go sweet with my frame, lol. It also looks like a decent hub

they are overkill, but # not size. build up was so easy. if ya get the chance build your own :thumbsup: they also rock tubeless;)
How did you set them up tubeless? I've been trying ghetto 26" tubes and one with a WW2.55LT works, but the one with the Geaz Saguaro keeps going boom after about 6 hours. My faithful bike mechanic helper dog is getting jumpy! :D :eek:

i did the same thing (ghetto) 26"tube & stans. I built up the bead untill it was hard to mount the tire on the rim. made initial inflation much easer.
been out beatin up my new ride w/ this set up and have have very good luck:thumbsup:
ran as low as 20psi. to soft. settled around 28 or 30

sorry about the pooch,
notin more funny than seein a dog piss his pants. sorry made me laugh!!

You need to calculate spokes using hub flange diameter and spacing, plus ERD of rim. There are a few online spoke calculators, or let someone else do it, like I did. ;)

Mine built up with no issues. They are big. They are not light. Once you get some burly rubber on them, they just look right and feel solid. Confidence-inspiring for me. Just bring your rim and hub to your favorite shop -- they'll hook you up with spokes.
