Edge 1.0 Rims. 38/68mm

Postby Fibre-Lyte » Sat Apr 05, 2008 11:51 pm

It's a flaw, but having seen a lot of moulded parts, it happens :roll:

Have you contacted Edge about it?

The 2.xx rims are the "Clydesdale" version.

Yes the 2.0 are heavier and more durable. They also have a woven outer layer instead of the UD finish.

Edge .68 build for 90k porker?

Postby ksroadie » Sun Aug 24, 2008 7:08 pm

Actually, just big. Would like to build a reliable set of Edge 2.68 tubulars for the road. (At my weight I figure the 2 series would be best.) But what spoke count and hubs? Extralite hubs look sweet, but a good choice considering my weight? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Question to be asked then are going to use these for TT/racing etc? An everyday wheel?

For TT with the 2.68 you could go 18/20 with the Extralite SX/SR hubs radial laced front, 2x DS and radial NDS. The NDS flange has a large offset from the centre of the hub and by 2X the NDS gives it a large dish that looks wrong and not as stiff. ( my experiences anyway).

For everyday use or even just normal road racing go 20/24 with a Tune Mig 70/180 for something light and durable or DT 190/240. The latter will be the most bullet proof option.

Keep in mind that Edge have no weight limit to any of there products. I have a couple of 210 lb guy's using 1.68's and have had no issues since they got them at the start of the year.

Use either DT Aerolite or Sapim CX-Ray ( not going to get into an argument which is better). I would assume you may buy them from FW so Madcow would advise which spoke they want to use.

The 2.68 with Extralite SR/SX hubs should come in around 1170 maybe less. ( i have done a pair of 1.68's w/SX/SR 20/24 - 1060gms.

With Tune 70/80 expect 1280gms.
1310gms for DT 190 Ceramic
1360 for DT 240

Hope all this helps

I've been training on a set of the clincher 38's for the past 8 months and have had great results. Haven't had to true the wheels once and haven't held back at all with what I throw at the wheels. I live in Boulder and train a lot on dirt roads and definitely have hit some big holes. I've also done some local crits and hill climbs and love the stiffness and predictability of the wheels. I can't wait to race full time on Edge wheels next year!

Phil - have you tried the 68's or just the 38's?

Well since as a Healthnet rider he should have only been riding on Mavic I would say not. However when he borrowed mine, they may have been taped over and he might have mistakenly thought they were Mavics....

Then I think that he likes the 68's, or will in the future when he races on them. :wink:

Those Mavic wheels look much nicer than the ones I've seen before. Are they for pros only, or can anyone get them?

If it's the first, I'm a pro and just haven't told anyone yet.

Jason, how would you compare the rims/wheels to the corresponding Enve 3.4s and 6.7s?
