I wish I had your wheel building skills! Looks like a nice system. I love my enduro wheelset...being a heavier rider, I have not had a single issue with wheels/spokes with semi-aggressive riding.

I have a set of 1700 splines. I think they have PHR tech but i'm not sure and they were prebuilt. they are strong. I run dhr f and r on those. The kings I run ardent race or ikons for fast xc

So these arrived the other day. Found them on PinkBike used. Thinking I’ll rebuild my OEM wheels with them. My DT 370’s are showing some age. Still want a set of Kings for primary wheels.

Anyone here with Spank 350/359 experience? For what ever reason they appeal to me. I like the bead groves. And something you don’t see as OEM equipment all the time. No eyelets so I’d build using the DT nipple washers.

Edit: it appears a washer is built into the newer rims. They also recommend a triple butt spoke 2.2/1.8/2.0. Not sure how I fell about running alpine III or similar?

Sourcing bike parts sucks right now. At least these showed up today. Spokes should follow soon.

I’m going to lace these up with the 240s hubs above and DT Competition spokes.

I actually had a nightmare where I taco'd a rim couldn't find a new one.

Some more parts have arrived. Man this Covid supply chain sucks. Need to get on this wheel build now when time allows.

Oh, and this one. Still waiting on the front “350”. This will be a build that follows later.

This has nothing to do with 29er wheel sets, but I need fork seals for my wife’s bike and a new derailler for mine and they are about a month out. Hopefully this is only a temporary delay.

I bought a pair of the Spank rims to replace my old Spank rims and am a little disappointed they changed to the low and wide profile rim. My last ones lasted 4 years of racing. As far as hubs go I am a true believer in Industry Nine Torch hubs using steel J-bend spokes. I have run those for years and have had noting but good experiences. I rebuild them every season and pull the free hub body off and clean it a couple times a season.

My Spank rims are destined for a gravity based wheel-set build reusing my DT1900 wheel-set’s hubs.
