    I'm curious if anyone has done this, or investigated wether or not it's feasible?

    it'd be a nice conveniance item, especially since cast wheels aren't an option!

    Woody to the courtesy phone please!

    danny ,,,the x-laced rims are pounds heavier and way more expensive than what ya have,,,,it's not that i couldn't come up with an answer for you,,,the only front rim is a 2.15 x21 and rear either 2,50 x17 or 2.50x18,the rims alone go for $400 each,,,,hubs 300-450,,, spoke set 190 and labor x-lace n true 150,,,in my opinion[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    i can build ya tougher Superlaced wheels with beefy ss spokes for circa $200 each,,,want trick rims add another $300/pair

    thanks for the reply woody!

    don't have a 650 yet ;), have a 12 with cast rims that I'll get around to having a 21/18 set made for.. eventually..

    but the fiance might be looking at getting one, and I've never been the biggest fan of tubes cause they're a pain to patch compared to plug kits for tubeless.

    I know regular wheels can be sealed to run tubeless, but it's not nearly as permanent a solution. thanks for the prices breakdown :1drink
