Abusing Carbon Rims

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kenneth Zukin Aug 23, 2011. 6 Replies

I picked up a used set of DA Tubular rims over the Summer, and am planning on using them as my go-to cross wheels -- I know it's important to change out my brake pads to carbon specific ones to…Continue

I just picked up a set of tubular wheels and am looking forward to making the jump to running lower tire pressures.  I ride & race in northern Calif. and am looking for one race tire to do it…Continue

Kenneth Zukin replied to Pat Cusack's discussion Stans Iron Cross Pressure and Tubes
"There's a lot of guys on this forum who have more experience than me, but overall, I'd say you should be able to expect that your tubeless tires shouldn't be leaking much air, if any.  I'm running some WTB Cross Boss…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to Jon Paul's discussion Newby choosing a bike
"I agree with everything Kris says about bike fit.  Once the CX season comes to a close (December), that's a good time to find a used bike.  I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on a 105 group, or SRAM Apex, as Cross is…"

Kenneth Zukin left a comment for Greg Basa
"Hi Greg, It's a white bike with black / red accents.  I'm the original owner.  I think it's a 2009. It's pretty light; about 18-19 pounds.  I have a set of Salsa Cowbell bars on it (40cm). The steerer tube…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to David Thomas's discussion 2012 Redline Conquest Pro 48cm Frameset - Carbon Fiber
"I have a Jamis Supernova bike for sale -- 48 cm -- 51.5cm top tube.  Outfitted with SRAM Rival.  It's an aluminum frame with carbon front and rear.  About 5-6 yrs. old.  It's been raced, but has seen little duty the…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to Kris Fleming's discussion WTB ChrisCross tubeless rims... first impressions??
"We're in a drought-like pattern here in NoCal -- haven't had rain for months -- so we never raced in slick, or muddy conditions -- so my friend ran higher pressures when racing.  He did run some low pressures (mid-20s) just as an…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to Kris Fleming's discussion WTB ChrisCross tubeless rims... first impressions??
"I'm not running them personally, but one of my teammates is.  He had nothing but praise.  They aren't the lightest wheelset around, but he weighs 175 and had no issues with wheels going out of true, of flats for that matter. He…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to Jon L's discussion Cyclocross on the cheap
"A friend of mine wanted to try 'Cross -- we found him a nice used year-old Felt 75X on Craigslist at the end of last season -- it had a mixture of Shimano 105 and Felt-speced aluminum parts.  He paid $750 -- it needed a bottom bracket but…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to Jon L's discussion Cyclocross on the cheap
"Just another opinion:  I'd hold out for two complete bikes -- you don't want to abuse your "road" bits and pieces with 'cross racing;  it's really brutal on components.  And having a dedicated 'cross…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to Robert Annis's discussion Need some advice on handling turns
"Also, sound so simple, but look where you WANT to go -- you really have to discipline yourself on this one. Don't just look 5 feet in front of you -- look where you want to go and you're bike will magically follow. Same technique used in…"

Kenneth Zukin replied to Kenneth Zukin's discussion Abusing Carbon Rims
"I appreciate the insight; maybe I should re-think high-end carbon tubulars...I've thus far raced on a pair of Ksyrium clinchers -- I'm wanting to upgrade to tubular -- but I can't really see "sacrificing" a thousand dollar…"

Echappe Equipment replied to Kenneth Zukin's discussion Abusing Carbon Rims
"They worked well.  Won some races, lost some races.  You know, standard stuff.  They were the 50mm wheels. As some mentioned below, you should know that while they may be resilient wheels, they probably won't be able to be ridden…"
