The latest in wheels is carbon rims. Said to be stiffer and stronger but not always lightest. Roval Control 29 Carbon is a work like that:
Both including 2Bliss tubeless ready rimstrip and valves. Compared to the pair of wheels that came with my bike. Roval Control 29. Same but with alu rims. A bit lighter but should also be a bit softer:
Probably with the including Specialized Ground Control tires. 2,3″ in front and 2,1″ rear:
Then I put the two tubes on the scale without a picture. 300g. When I stansed a pair of wheels for Matthias Wengelin I took the time to find out how much you save. 156g was the 140cl stans for two wheels. Then you have the valves but almost 140g saved is pretty much. And then you can use less stans if you got good tires.
Am really motivated to get this bike together (only missing fork) and have spring to test it for real 😀 Aiming for an awesome cyclingyear with many great moments 🙂
