    I can't imagine that a lite Nightrider on a skinny rim would feel very wide as they're pretty round as it is. I know you love weirdly skittish tyres but thinner 36" tyres sounds pretty awful!

      It doesn't look or feel any narrower with the carbon rim. And I don't know what you mean when you say I "love weirdly skittish tires". 🤔

        The skittish tyres comment was directed towards Piece Maker, but it's interesting that you don't find it feels any narrower. What PSI are you running?

          Somewhere between 55 and 60 PSI on the road, and around 30 PSI for Muni

            Here's a shot of the nightrider lite Tire on the carbon rim.
            The second shot shows the carbon rim next to the stealth rim and you can see there's really no difference in the width. Can you guess whether the carbon rim is on the left or right?

            Btw, the weight of the original NR wheelset, minus disc, cranks and pedals is 10lbs!

              On my muni I have a 32mm (external) rim and a 2.35 tyre. I must admit that I've often wished for a wider rim to improve stability.

              Totally different wheel and tyre on the 36er though, so maybe a narrow rim is fine there.

              Didn't the Quax 36ers come with a 32mm rim at one point? Do they still do so?

                Btw, the outer diameter of the carbon Rim is 33.5mm vs 42mm for the stealth ll.

                  My 36er Rim has an outer diameter of only 24.5mm. It rides without any problem. I ride it with high pressure on the road. So for sure the 33.5mm diameter of the carbon wheel is no problem at all... with high pressure on the road.

                    Which 36er rim has such a super narrow width? Must be the Alex 787x25.

                          Yup, the rim is my own creation. For Aluminium waiting is over. I avoided showing special tools in my report. So feel free to go to your workshop and create your own custom rim right now!
                          I investigated how to create carbon wheels. But for carbon I guess it is better to wait for what other people create for us.

                            This is fantastic! I'd been meaning to do the same thing for years. I'm glad someone else beat me to it and proved the concept!

                              Hello Terry!

                              I have some questions about the nimbus 100mm 32-hole disc hub and the spokes (I'm in the process of purchasing the rim, the hub and the spokes). I read on facebook you use 367mm spokes.
                              I used the UDC spoke calculator (https://www.unicycle.co.uk/calculator) with an ERD of 745mm and the dimensions of the nimbus 100mm 36-hole disc hub (the 32-hole hub is not in the list, I don't know if they're exactly the same...).
                              Results : 361.12mm for the disc side, 362.44mm for the non disc side. I
                              Did I make a mistake? 362mm spokes will be too short?

                              Moreover the angle of the spokes for the disc side, it is about 2.7°. Wasn't it difficult to build the wheel? Does the wheel look solid?

                                361 would definitely be too short. It was a fairly easy build and I just use the same length for both sides.
