New Wheels

Look what the big brown truck just left at my door.

New wheels from Woody's . Front is 1.85x21, rear is 3.5x17 sealed for tubeless tires, both on new hubs, superlaced and oh so pretty. Now I just have to decide what black bouncy rings to mount on them.

I decided I would go for gold to jazz up the bike a bit, those black wheels are just a bit blah. My main motive however was not looks, my stock front wheel is sporting some flatish parts where it should be roundish. These should perform a bit better in that regard.

I'd love to see them on your bike.

I won't be getting them installed right away. I still need to get the tires and will be doing a new chain at the same time. But I will be posting pictures once they're on.

I promise to be careful. But no, not really a big concern. Mostly I needed better wheels than the originals, the colour was just a bonus. I hope they'll be sporting a good layer of dust and dirt much of the time anyway.

How are they sealed for tubeless? Is it like the way they seal 3 piece wheels for cars with silicon spread over the seam(in this case nipples)?

Woddy's would be able to provide better detail on the actual sealing process, but yes, that is essentially what they do. There is a sealant applied to the center of the rim over the nipples, then once cured a protective tape is wrapped over that.

There's also a sealant applied individually to the spokes under the silicone and tape layer.

Got rubber today. I ordered a Mitas E-09 in a 140/80-17 for the rear and a Mitas E-10 90/90-21 for the front along with a heavy duty tube. I placed the order yesterday morning with MX1 Canada and the tires were on my doorstep this afternoon Pretty amazing service I'd say, especially considering they shipped for free.

Hopefully I'll get some time to mount them up on the weekend or early next week.

It's just like seeing your presents under the tree but not being able to open them. Or like knowing your parts are in the mail, going across the country twice before getting them.

C'mon, you're such a tease!

Some people.
