Tech Bench / New Rims/wheelset
« on: December 15, 2017, 09:41:36 PM »
I have had a specialized rockhopper (it was about $650, so whichever model that is) 29er. It came with some 2.1 wide tires and I'm still running tubes, for now. I've had this thing about 5 weeks on around 15 rides (town run, fort Ben, flat fork Creek) and have folded my back rim 4 times now.

It's usually due to poor 180s and endos, or trying to spray dirt on a turn (is that called roosting or something?). Anywho, I'm probably going to need a new rim soon. I definitely like a more playful feel  and like to go as aggressive as I can as new biker in Indiana and weigh around 200lbs.

With that said, I'm not sure where to start looking or what I'm looking for? Also, any tips or guides for truing a wheel? I don't want to keep paying for truings.
