I have some feedback for ya.

Rim: Velo P35
Spokes: DT Swiss
Hub: CK Disc
Tires (Current) Maxxis Ardent 2.25
Builder: Mosaic Cycles

Bike: Mosaic Smith SS 29er

These are awesome wheels. They aren't the lightest (cant recall how much my build weighs) but they are laterally stiff and very compliant in the majority of terrain. I like them alot, they make my already wide tires wider. I've heard of problems with people running too low pressures and getting rim dents, I have had no such problems. Aaron, the great kid who built my wheels at Mosaic has almost the same set, put a pretty big dent in his and they still run true.

I have had no problems personally. I just wish they where a bit lighter, but they work very well for the XC setup I have. Ill try and post some pics later today.

Just read the lniked post showing the p35 with some dents in dings.I do not ride in super rocky condition,and being a x moto guy I tend to pick some pretty good lines.
I have used bontrager ryhtum wheels over the past few years within any issues,how do the p35 compare to the bontrager ??

Mike at Lacemine built mine and I love em. 6'3 250pounds and i am not nice to them and the ask for more. air pressure is always set right for me. Run to low of pressure and risk denting but this is a great rim. If I was looking at getting another set of wheels I would go back this direction.

hey,thx for takeing the time out and passing on the feedback,I run my tire pressure at 35-37 psi,so I think I'll be fine.....
When people state thay run low pressure,just how low are they going

At 180 lbs, I ride 20-25 psi tubeless on 2.4" tires. If I was rolling narrower tires, I might go a little higher. I don't think I could go back to 35+ psi...
