Stock standard 36″ wheels are heavy things to spin. Grams saved at the outside of the wheel add up to make a big difference in the energy required during every acceleration/ deceleration. The easiest way to lighten up a 36’er wheel and bring it to life is to replace the standard tube with a 29’er (or convert to tubeless).
Thanks to Unicycle.com Australia I have a drilled Nimbus Stealth Rim to test drive.
I ran out of time today and only had a chance to fit it to my 36’er and go for a quick spin. The plan is to use it on all my off road rides in the coming weeks. It’ll be interesting to see how the rim holds up!
