My bad I'll try reposting it:Jones wrote:The link is broken but most manufactures list the Outer dimension of the rim not the inner. The general thinking these days is wider is better. If your present wheel is not broken do not spend your money save it for the next bike much more bang for your buck.
Thank you for the info and advice on rims. So basically when they say 10x135 the 10 is the difference between the OLD and total axle width, and the 135 is the OLD width?Possum wrote:10x135 means that it's a 10mm diameter skewer/shaft, and the OLD is 135mm.
9x135 is the older "standard" skewer (skinny skewer inside a 9mm dia shaft). The 10x135 usually means is a "full diameter" skewer, meaning that instead of having end caps on the ends of the hub the the skewer sits inside (and the frame sits on the endcaps), the end caps end at the frame interface and the frame sits on the actual skewer in the dropout. Either is usually compatible with a "standard" 135mm spaced frame.
I can't find anything on the Sunringle site that confirms whether that's an inner or outer width, but I suspect it's an outer width.
Should be compatible with your bike and cause you no issues.
I wouldn't say that this wheelset is a huge step up in strength compared to your stock wheels. Maybe a little, but not a huge step.
I prefer the Mavic rim to the Sun, but it's a bit narrow by today's standards. Mavic has a bunch of good rims that are a little wider. I'd suggest maybe something close to a 30mm outer width in either a Mavic or DT Swiss rim.
Awesome! Thanks man, that's a great deal, both for just over the price of one.watts888 wrote:135x10 means 135mm width by 10mm diameter
I've bought simple cheap wheelsets before, and they are strong and worth it for reliability. For performance, I'm so glad I bought some BHS hubs and some WTB I29 rims. A good wheelset makes a huge difference. I still like my old clunker wheels for exercise, but they just can't compare when I want to go fast and ride stupid.
Same shimano hub rhynolight wheel, but full the wheelset.

heavy duty downhill rims. more expensive, but wide rims and cartridge bearing hubs. Aluminum freehub body though, so you'll want to get a cassette that uses an alloy carrier. Opportunity to upgrade.
