Looks like the hub is loose, probably the end caps. I can't quite tell what the hub is but you may need a couple of special or proprietary tools to adjust it.

I've actually put riders in the 400lbs+ range on a max of a 40h rear wheel with great results. One thing to consider is that as you go to a 48h rim, you're removing a fair bit more metal from the web...

Ah so close to home! I would love to, except I'm nursing a broken leg at the moment. If by some miracle I'm cleared to ride and feeling like I can do 30 mi again, I'll do everything I can to make it.

Great looking bike, and glad I clicked the link as I think it confirms the origins of one of my frames. I've got a un-stickered frame of the same vintage that is absolutely identical. I was told its...

I use a DT Tensio but I don't think you want to spend $600 or whatever craziness they charge. The Park is definitely good enough for a hobbyist. The A23 should be built to 120kgf drive side, with a...

The cheap Sunlite one I used worked with no issues on my 91-ish MTB. I think the mounting tabs are somewhat adjustable IIRC.

Are the hubs 11spd compatible by chance? If so a lot of the current hub designs have almost no NDS tension on them, which makes it easy for the spokes to loosen up over time, especially if the DS is...

As far as tubeless ready rims go, we make plenty in 36h and even 40h, and we sell quite a few of them.

The Kapton tape is a good alternative, just make sure that you use enough layers for the pressure you're running. It should work well with tubes or tubeless too -- the key is to have a slick tape...
