I don't post here much, except to ridicule new lizard standards or the like, but I promised I'd spread the word around a bit.
Oxive, a new-to-the-scene carbon rim manufacturer, contacted me and asked me to do a review of their wheels/rims. They appear to be a new Chinese carbon rim manufacturer with several different wheel-sizes and rim widths.
I'm happy with my AM wheelset-and-a-half and my fat wheelsets, but I was thinking of building up a new XC wheelset this summer for local racing. My current wheelset is built on Nexties that were DH and enduro raced for a few seasons starting in 2014, then re-built for a rigid bike, later a hardtail, xc racing, then re-built a 3rd time for my Pivot 429SL and raced a crapload more (including a pinch flat a few weeks ago in Sedona). To be sure, I've beat these to hell and back and if they spontaneously exploded tomorrow, I won't be disappointed. They aren't heavy with a DT240/XTR combo, but weight has come down a bit with some of the newer carbon rims and I wanted to get something along these lines. For this reason, I selected the 290g 29er XC racing rims. According to the site, these have a T700 and T800 layup. I asked for the rims, rather than complete wheels, since I prefer to build my own wheels.
That is the correct link, however, if you look at the page, you'll see the correct rim is shown. I pointed this out, but I'm not sure they understood.
At first, I wasn't quite sure if I was getting one or two rims. I felt that they were more than generous in supplying a rim and I've been traveling a lot and unable to respond to a lot of email or messages, but turned out it was two rims.
The package arrived, everything seemed normal about delivery and delivery time. The lead-time seemed perfectly normal.
The box had a cut, which was a little scary, but nothing inside was damaged. Impossible to tell where it came from, I had them shipped to my workplace and I wasn't there. Packaging was normal from what I've seen with carbon rims.
