    ISO:

    Shimano or Suntour bar end shifters. If not a set, I could also use either a Shimano rear, or a Suntour/Raliegh front (are they even different?)

    If you use Velotape, or equivalent, as suggested, tire installation/removal is a breeze. Just make sure the bead is down in the center channel for removal or installation.

    Not 100% sure what's meant by weld bead, but it is a sleeve joined rim, not welded.

    I am going to generally agree with the others and say that the lacing pattern is likely not the issue. Personally, I would have put you on a more conventionally laced wheel, but a radial/2x should be...

    I can't say for sure, but on my Straggler with Ailerons (32h 2x) the TRP's don't rub, but there's not a ton of clearance. I think a lot of it will come down to the hub flange. I used our ATB disc...

    Just chiming in to say that we *don't* recommend cloth or any thicker tape on the A23. Two layers of Velotape or equivalent (Stan's) will make tire mounting much easier, and it will stay put.

    Of our rims, the Aileron is my favorite to build. I think you'll really like how they build, and even more, how they ride.
