Does anyone have any time on the LaMere Carbon fat rims?
I've never had carbon rims, but have a set of 65s coming from LaMere. How tough was it to mount the tire? Since you can't use tools - did you just muscle it on? I would want to change tires in the winter for conditions, but if it is a nightmare - maybe not?Setting them up tubeless was a bit of a mixed bag. I'm running the superlight version of the husker du with a single wrap of gorilla tape and speed evolution valves. The front beaded up and seated on the first try without a problem. The rear took 3 people and about 20 minutes to get seated. However it was clearly more a problem with the tire than the rim as the rear tire had a much looser fit than the front. Once seated both have been flawless. Just to see how well they mated we ran them on the trails as low as 2 psi and have been without problem.
I have a set of 65s and an extra 80 for deep snow. So far the 65s are great wheels. Stiff and light. I have some road and light off road miles on them, hoping to log more miles as the weather gets better.Any other reports out on these rims? I am tempted to score a set of 65 mm for summer riding
did you buy them over say marge lites, for weight savings or strength or both?I have a set of 65s and an extra 80 for deep snow. So far the 65s are great wheels. Stiff and light. I have some road and light off road miles on them, hoping to log more miles as the weather gets better.
