The local bike shop is not quite sure about the nipple size...which means i'll most likely have to find another rim. Duc was trying to get an alexd24 rim, i was thinking an alex dx32 rim (im going for 39mm). Has anyone had a problems with the current rim it's laced in???
The rim that I got my 5404 laced in, is a copy of an older DH rim, a DT Swiss of the late "90s if my memory is good.
It is stronger than most of today's DH rims, except for the very best that are made of 7000 series Alloys.
Nipples are ordinary 12 ga.
Have the rim re-laced adding nipple washers, and it will last hard riding.
I've been searchin through the forums about dishing for wider rims and specifically for the dh comp's 135 dropouts. I'm pretty hooked on the surlys. I want to get the large marge....but i'm confused about how its gonna fit into the 135 dropouts...How much dishing is really needed? How much is too much? I saw that you told wayne 1/4" to the left is good. What i plan on doing...is using the spokes that are currently lacing the 5404 into the stock crystalyte rim (i'm hoping to avoid any custom spoke cutting and what not).
I wanted to mount the 5404 without dishing into the regular large marge XC version (26"/36h) : http://www.niagaracycle.com/product_inf ... _id=415380
As for dishing...well...i could also mount it into the DH version of the large marge (26" with a 17.5mm offset):http://www.niagaracycle.com/product_inf ... _id=504313
1. Any problems with over a half inch offset?
2. Am i better off going with the XC version and just tightening up the left side spokes to create an offset?
3. Can i even USE the spokes that came with it? I don't see why not....please let me know...
4. WHERE ARE THE THREADS WHERE PEOPLE ARE RELACING 5404s into more BADASS RIMS!!!!
Let me know cause i'm itching to buy the large marge. Looks sooo sick. most likely gonna fit it with the nate tires...well..that is if its not >3" then i'll have to go with the frickin larry's...
Oh and...cycle us superfat??? WAY CHEAPER!!! Anyone know the difference? Is it just like sony/samsung vs everything else? Surlys~130-180 Superfats~80-90http://www.choppersus.com/store/product ... 2.5-Black/
