I ordered my replacement rim mid March as a warranty replacement and she is still saying it won't ship for a few weeks……

These things are holding up well under you? I feel like I would be way easier on my equipment than you
I take it most people are running the DH versions of these on trail bikes?

^I run the 33mm DH 26 version on the DH bike and the 30mm HD (I think it is an AM lay up) on the 29er HT

Just my rear, I cracked it riding in Moab, was just on single track and a rock hit the side and put stress cracks in it and it will not hold air if I am tubeless now. They are pretty good about things like that and so I am just paying for the shipping.

they've arrived, look stunning and have been built up. the gloss 12k finish is redonkulously cool looking and the overall build quality to the eye at least is very very good. i hope they last a good long time.

It has been another Month and now Nancy is not even responding to emails. She had said they would ship out in a month. In total I have been waiting since March 21st or so.

Keep us updated. Did you build them yourself or just buy the rims?

Curious if and how people are able to mount wire bead DH tires to the 650b Nancy rims. I know Kram has anyone else?

So I was looking through my past emails. It has been 110 days since Nancy told me the lead time was 20 -25 days and she has now offered me 28h rim which would mean buying a new hub or 650Brim for my 26 replacement….thank god I have been able to ride mine with a tube even though it has a crack.

Yep, DH HR2 on the hookless 35mm ones. Wasn't too hard to mount actually, certainly not as hard as I expected. Used a couple of Teflon leavers and some soapy water.

Schwalbe DH tire would be pretty tough I bet, their beads are much tighter.

I've not had much luck with LB rims on the rear of my DH and AM bikes. DH cracked within about 3 weeks, AM within about 3 months. LB offered a measly $20 discount towards replacement. I run low-ish pressure (26psi) but I'm also a pretty scrawny guy (155lbs with gear). Going back to aluminum on the rear…
