    Waiting for feedback on these as well. They appear to be the Archetype without brake tracks and with a tubeless well. Weight checks ok in my mind.
    With bicycles in particular, you need to separate between what's merely true and what's important.

    I'm just glad they came out with a new rim for this instead of fcking up the Archetype for those of us who use tubes and think the archetype is perfect as is.

    Totally agree.

    Looking at dimensions, the Hydra is a bit wider and shallower than the Archetype. It also doesn't have that unique sharp point at the center that the Archetype does, but more of a round.

    I'm really interested in this rim, but saw some chatter on Instagram of tubeless blow-offs. That was a while ago, not sure if later batches fixed it or not.

    Can you share more about this? Or where to find?

    So did you build them up or have somebody build them up for you. Did you build them as a road tire or gravel or off road tire? How where they built?

    Thanks

    H Plus Son  Hydra-img_20170519_104902652.jpgHi Zman,

    I think we have spoken in another forum.

    Mill City Cycle built these for me, and I am Mill City Cycle. Mine are built with DT Swiss 350 Straight Pull Centerlock hubs and Wheelsmith Straight Pull DB15 spokes. I have 32mm Panaracer Gravel King SK's installed tubeless.

    Wheels are working out great. I've done a few events on them, and a fair amount of training and riding miles. A small branch that rode up into my spokes knocked the rear wheel out of true once, but it straightened right out again.

    My build is 24/28h and I am 200 lbs. You should have me build you a pair.
