Recently tacoed my front wheel (700c Alex rims with a 35mm tyre) in my CX during a recent single trail ride with my mountain buddies. This made me think of using 29er rims with my 35mm CX tyres. As 29"er rims are virtually 700c rims in disguise, my thinking is that those 29er rims designed for MTB must be *stronger* than the usual 700c rims that were designed for road use. I'm thinking of getting the 23mm or the 21mm 29" rim for my 35mm CX tyre.
Is this possible? Has anybody done this? Or am I way over my depth? Inputs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
