speaking of.... whats the skinniest rim I can reasonably run fatty tires like 700x35 on ? I'd like to get wheels I could use anything from like a 28 to a 35 on.

what tire sizes to cx riders run? ah,k, the fulcrom 7 cx says up to 35c.


and, hmm. do the decals come off those fulcrum wheels or is the logo etched/screened on ?

Dude, $300 won't break the bank? What do you do for a living? Do you need any help?

You didn't say what type of gearing (modern or threaded cassette) you have, but, these are fairly inexpensive:

Black Velocity 36H

Silver Velocity36H

Black Mavic 36H

Silver Mavic 36H

Fulcrum Racing 7 at $249

Velocity Chukker are really strong, but, mostly SS.

I'd say 15mm.

High-end, racing wheels will be ~13mm. Cyclocross and commuter wheels will be 15-18mm. 29er MTB wheels will be ~20mm.

I've run 40mm, on my Tricross (16mm). But, I've seen a 50mm, 29er MTB tire on a Tricross, too.

Thanks for the tips - I apologize for not providing more data. I was ticked off when I wrote that last night. This is for my daily commuter, a 2010 Specialized Sirrus. 700c, 32h, 8 gears inna back. Need something double-walled and durable.

Dude, is all that green on the map official bike lanes and paths? If so, I am jealous!

Here is the town I live in, probably about 150K people in this view. Just look at all the bike trails!

hmmm. the CX appropriate rims on velocity were like 21-24mm wide. 29er blunts were like 35mm wide or something.

re: the OP, any wheels in the $100 a pair range are going to be the same cheap junk that came on your Cirrus and will die the same way. my Globe has those same cheap 1" wide 700c hybrid wheels on it. if/when mine sproing, I'm looking to upgrade to something like cross wheels. I'm running 35m tires now, but if I get my weight down, I'll probably drop to 32 or even 28 so I wanted to be sure I could get away with that range.

^^^ Outside widths.

What I listed were bead widths, or what is generally listed on the rim label.

so... anyone got any experience with Velocity Dyad rims? they seem like the right mix to me for what I'll want once my crappy stockers start to go... basically a touring wheelset for my hybrid.

*WHY* do all these brands like Fulcrum insist on splashing their graphics all over things?!? I don't mind a small tasteful label, but to cover the whole rim in giant letters like its a sponsored race thing

5055 as of yesterday. How about that, I've been over 5000 miles on this bike. That's pretty goddam cool! Anyway, that was 348 miles, not great but not bad. I didn't have much of a chance to ride with the club, so most of those are solo. I'm at 2705, 80 miles ahead of my schedule. I should be at 2625.

That's a pretty reasonably priced wheelset. Ask Gummee about the MSRP on his Zipps.

Interested in learning about lacing/truing? You can buy a rim and spokes pretty cheaply and relace the wheel.

I'm thinking of giving it a shot with my tweaked Shimano rear wheel. What could possibly go wrong?

Guess I'm a candidate for KLR ownership, then!

I've laced up my own rims before (did it on my racing bike). It's not hard - that's probably what I'll end up doing here.

9th in my first CX race and 12th in my second on Sunday. My tires were the weak link both days but I'll put up the full report later when I get more time. Brutal, dirty, wet, muddy fun... and that was just Saturday watching the wimmen's race.
