Just to let you know, the 29er wheels you built for me, same spec, successfully raced the Tour Divide this summer. Loved 'em!
NoTubes Traildog Crest 29er / Dec 17
NoTubes Traildog / Sept 17
In the night sections in Scotland when tired I hit several fairly substantial potholes full-on and at speed, with no ill-effects (other than to my hands). So it seems 28 spokes and stiff rims with a well-built wheel may indeed be sufficient for ultra-endurance events like these (me + bike & kit weighed around 85 kg).
The wheels are prefect. They did the Torino Nice Rally with the high gravel roads such as the Asietta etc in great form. They even shrugged off a collision with a post on the cyclepath coming out of turin!

Just fitted the new wheels, and after a quick ride wanted to report back that they've completely transformed my Genesis croix de fer. Amazing! Far more comfortable and loads quicker. Also about half a kilo lighter!
Comment: First ride on my industry nine ultralite. Light,stiff super smooth bearings. won expert xc race by over 8 minutes can i ask for more.

Just a note to say thanks for the great wheels, can really tell the difference from the Askiums fitted previously. Don't look to shabby either!

First ride out on the wheels last night... I'm amazed at how smooth the wheels are! They seemed to be effortless getting up to speed and then stayed there forever! I added 1.1mph average speed compared to the same circuit ten days ago and that's including me being a little out of condition.

I'm really really happy with the wheels!! I'm spreading the word on how well the wheels are built everywhere.
