Hey Scrod, any chance you'll carry Kinlin rims in the future?

I would really like to but finding a wholesale distributor (without having to purchase a bazillion of them) is proving to be a little tough. I have a couple of avenues to explore today though so fingers crossed!

edit: it looks like we may have found a distributor fro KinLins so I have a feeling some good things are about to happen.

Good news: we've nailed down a distributor for KinLin rims - including the 38mm deep XR380 (available in July). Expect to see build kits on the site very soon!

I keep asking our distributor and they keep saying they don't know when to expect them. Bunk.

I can get the rims in low spoke counts but need to find a separate distributor for hubs - as most of the hubs I can get my hands on are 32 or 36h. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.

For the KinLins/Novatec kits? We need to figure out the math. There are slight price differences in the different rims but I'm aiming to keep all the kits under $250.

I'm gunning for 24 front/28 rear for xr-200s personally, if you can carry those. I can live with 32s though.

Ah, oh well. I may still be in for a rim or two. I'll have to see what my wallet says.

But yes, I'm glad my build kit idea wasn't dumb and I hope it sells well! They should make for killer wheels at a pretty competitive price.

I know the Novatec hubs are available in lower spoke counts but our distributor doesn't carry them. I'll be talking to them about stocking them tomorrow.

We will have the Kinlin rims available separately in 20, 24, 28 and 32h - in addition to the build kits - in the meantime.
