    Rims Only: Online Stores

    Hi Bikers,

    Looking for some suggestions for some online stores that have decent selections of carbon rims (not wheelsets). Looking to build up a set and want my own selection of spokes, hubs, wheel hole count, etc. Reputable stores across the pond are helpful too!

    Cheers,
    G

    Bikehubstore is the go to store for a lot of people around here. Good for hubs and spokes too. Owner stands behind what he sells. Gigantex Carbon Rims

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    Light Bicycle has an American warehouse and website now.
    Their rims are excellent quality and look great too.

    It has off-centered rim as well. Anyone has experience with those? Good, bad, not as good as it's advertised...etc.?

    The owner, Brandon is responsive to email questions.

    Not carbon but I built up a wheelset using the Kinlin offset XR26T 28H rear and XR22T 24H front for my gravel bike and most impressed.

    I just went for 20 mile test ride of my newly built Flo (30mm deep alum rim) front wheel. So far so good.

    I like their price. I thought they would have this logo but no.

    Rear wheel build is this weekend.

    Finished. It went smoothly for 20 miles today. I'm liking the diy wheel build idea.
