The new rim was built up just today. Feels a lot better than the Rhyno Lite that was on there, like a 47mm compared to 29mm should. The most noticable thing at the moment is reprogramming my brain to use the new width.. just like if you went from balancing on a 1x4 to a 2x4 piece of wood. A DX32 (drilled) is going on the front, maybe tomorrow if my pal in Colorado sent me the package like he should have :)
Thanks to everyone that posted about these rims in the past; it made the info very easy to find and sort out.

P.S. does anyone have a longish rigid fork they wanna sell? The one I have now is 390mm and I wanna go up to 415+

Heres what it looks like all completed. The first little practice session with the new rims-- and I had one of those moments where I felt a strong rush of trials being just the perfect thing to do with myself. I'm probably going to dump my internet connection very very soon but anyway, not before I say how cool its been to learn about these things from y'all.
By now I'm pretty happy with the bike I put together.

p.s. I didnt like this forum at first but over time I grew to appreciate the 'keep it real' ness of it. Many thanks to you, once again. Condom breath.

That is some mad rise on that stem...
Its because I mistakenly chose a fucking 390mm fork when I first got the frame. I'm 6' tall and using a regular stem it felt like my nose was about to touch the front tire.. boosting up the front end from a roll was just too stinking hard. Its why I asked if anyone had a long fork in the first post of this thread. I'm trying to make up for it by using a stupid Mt. Everest stem until I get a longer fork. Its pissed me off for about 2 months now. I hate my fork!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

damn I hate that thing. I repeat: if ANYONE has a v-brake compatible fork lying around at least 415mm long PLEASE sell me the bitch.
