Guys i am currently running a set of E2200 wheels on my AM , i have just bought a set of EX1750's . Two reasons , firstly i wanted a 10mm bolt thru on the rear and secondly to knock some rotating weight off .

I have looked for some info on the rims and cant find much , i know that the EX1750 wheels are basically DT 240 hubs and 5.1 rims with an expensive paintjob.

What are the rims on my E2200 ?

The spec says they are basically the same as the EX1750 rims apart from they are not a welded joint .

My E2200's are absolutely bulletproof and just wondering if the 1750 are of the same strength ?

Too late to worry anyhow as the 1750's are on their way, but info would be good.

thanks

E2200 rims are probably cheap versions of the 5.1 ex1750 run aerolite spokes which are a big upgrade in price, a good amount of weight loss, but not sure if I would spend the money to build a set of wheels with those spokes my self.

Yeah DVO1 , i know the difference in the quality , better hubs 240's v 370's , better spokes and nipples , But are the rims identicle apart from the welded joint on the 1750's ?

+ ive just paid twice the price of my E2200's for the EX1750's .

Found the information ..... http://www.whistlermountainbike.com/wmb/index.php?content=062408-DTswiss-e2200

The E2200 features a DT Swiss 370 hub with a two pawl design, and the rims are the E 540 model and are 28mm wide. The wheels are able to run up to a 2.5" tire and are 32 spokes laced in a 3 cross pattern.

So there is a difference in the rims , my 1750's are DT5.1's and my E2200's are E540's . The E2200 are bulletproof , time will tell on the 1750's :thumbsup:
