Cool. Where did you pick them up?

I'm looking into a pair of 32h Rynolite rims laced to Deore M525 Disk hubs myself. I'm a skosh lighter than you though. These will be for thinner slicks and street riding. I have a pair of Sun BMF rims laced to Deore LX hubs for harder core riding.

What the hell happened to your old rims again?
I think you said they cracked or something.

well I was popping spokes weekly from general riding...I was just too rough on the wheel, the only weak point of the bike has been the rear wheel...and well yeah...I'm 450# and I"m not kind to my bike. After the accident my foot was slammed into my spokes again...breaking them up and bending quite a few. Fortunately the bikeshop had just finished building that wheel...I'm also having a set of Velocity Deep V 36H to XT hubs built for me.

Where did you find the 36 rhynos?????????
And what hubs did you lace them to? I think you may have mentioned them a couple of days ago but I don't remember......
I picked up some 36 hole Mavic 519s that I'm gonna lace to some XTs... just gotta find some 36 hole XT hubs on clearance some place :-)

at the 40 spoke count you start to run out of options REAL quick...the rims/hub which is a Shimano Deore Hub was ordered through the LBS...You can buy the 36H rims on ebay, i saw a few sets the last time I looked. The XT Disc ISO hubs were like 90 bucks for the set on bikepartsusa.com I had to search to find a set of the 6 bolt versus that shimano rotor lock crap....

Speedgoat can build you a rhynolite 48-spoke rim with a 145mm disc brake 48-hole hub for $383.
Good luck trying to break a 48 spoke rim.. heh.

You would need a downhill spaced rear triangle would you not. (demo9 for example)

Considering it's a wheel built for tandem bikes, I'm not sure if the demo9 counts as a tandem bike. Looks like it'll fit his kona mtb though.

Freeriders who huck also buy them. Bender used one for a while (and busted it I might add)

If the kona mtb looks like it will fit I assume you are talking a stab which has a dowhill width 150mm dropout (which maybe they got from tandem, I really dont know)

No it won't. MTB spacing (as on his Hoss) is 135mm and I really would NOT try coldsetting aluminum to push a 145 in there
