yes, the rim on the nimbus is aluminum too.

Aluminum frames are quite strong, arguably stronger than steel ones.

I have done 7' drops on my drilled kh rim, it's still fine...

I have done bigger, and my rim is still good. I dont like it though, cause comparing it to the undrilled rim, it goes out of true way too easily, and compared to the Alex DX, it just kinda seems flimsy.

Its still good, but I find myself trueing it a lot more than I ever had to with any other rim of mine.

Anyways, for trials, I like 140s, or 137s. I ride with my seat pretty high, so the length doesnt affect my speed or how smoothly I can pedal, but if I ride my friends Qu-Ax (145mm cranks) with his seat set as low as he has it, it feels very sluggish.

Ive done trials for years with 125s, and less q-factor, and it was ok. Somewhat zippy, but not bad.

When I switch over to the Qu-Ax 145s, or Profiles, which both have a higher q-factor, I love them. My stance is a bit wider, so my balance feels a lot better, specially on natural lines and when doing anything with a skinny.

My main ride now is the KH trials with 137 cranks. I still can zip around just as well as I did with my 125s, and they have a higher q-factor, so I get the wider stance on them and I love that. For me, 137s-145s are the best for trials.

Spoke wise, I dont think id ever go down to 32. I ride kinda big, and most of the time can rollout on drops, but a lot of lines wind up with me doing a 5 foot drop (or bigger) landing to a ledge, and if I rolled on the landing, id go into a bush, or fall of a bigger drop with an awkward pedal position.

So combining a 32 spoked hub to a mag rim, I dont think that would last for me too long.

So far my favorite has been the 48h Alex DX32 rim. That thing was so stable. Wasnt the widest rim, but that wasnt ever a problem for me. Im happy riding a 36h rim right now, and that holds nicely for me too, but not quite as well as the 48. Once I get a non-drilled 36h rim, im sure it will be closer to th 48h setup I used to ride.
