I'm looking at putting new 29er rims and spokes on a pair of hubs.
I normally run 2.3 or 2.4 ish tires on the back and 2.6 in the front. I don't anticipate using anything bigger than 2.8 in front.
I have a pair of wheels with Blunt 35 rims, and they've worked fine, but I've put a couple dents in them and I've read some saying they're soft. Perhaps my pressure was a bit low when I dented them.
I see the recommended Stan's rims for tires up to 2.8 wide, in their 'premium' alloy, are the Flow MK3 & EX3. I don't plan on flying off mountains as shown on the pages for these rims, but on a rigid bike I suppose I take some pretty good hits.
So, I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations between the Blunt 35 and the Stans MK3 or EX3, or if there are other rims I should consider. Weight, durability, and ease of establishing and maintaining a tubeless setup are the main considerations I can think of. Also I'm thinking alloy over carbon at this time.
