I think if the US office had their way, yes this would be on the near horizon or already happening. As long as the euro-tards continue calling the shots they'll continue to treat big wheels like small frites.kosmo said:Anybody know if DT Swiss is planning a 29er version of their new Tricon wheel?
These really intrigue me, but on DT's website, it appears that they are only available in a 26er version (and a road bike version).
Who said? The road Tricons have a tire width limite of 25mm. Plus the rear is 130mm and not even close to being re-dishable. Europe is behind the 29er curve, but give it time...Bicycle019 said:Word from DT Swiss as of last week was maybe, MAYBE 2011. Nothing for this season though.
EDIT: They did say if you want to run rim brakes you can use the 700c variant. Not a great option for most riders, but there is a way to run them.
Well, THIS world needs a super-stiff, tubeless-ready (no tape), 29er wheelset with proven, no-hassle, super-strong ratcheting mech hubs.the mayor said:Does the world need another boutique wheelset?
Yup:yesnod: And re-lacing the nice scandium RXL rims to a good hub will cost more than it's worth. Bonty blew it.kosmo said:Well, THIS world needs a super-stiff, tubeless-ready (no tape), 29er wheelset with proven, no-hassle, super-strong ratcheting mech hubs.
And for continuing domestic bliss, it would be best if they cost a lot less than a set of Edge composite wheels.
Honestly, I was perfectly happy with Bonty RXL wheels until they ditched the DT hub in the rear for a Formula (I think) POS that is lucky to last 1,000 miles.
