thanks for the response.
how do you (in general) identify a tubeless rim.
Having owned both Kinesis Crosslight V3 and Mavic Aksium One, for rubustness I'd defo go for the Aksium.
I had numerous issues with durability of Kinesis until I had the original spokes replaced. I had a lengthy chat with Derek from Wheelsmith who stated that the Kinesis rims/spokes were not designed for high pressure tyres (as I use disc wheels for my wet weather road bike) hence the durability issues.
Ive not had any issues with Aksium with a good few thousand wet miles in them, but they are 300g heavier than the Kinesis.
I've since had a set of Wheelsmith handbuilts which i'm very happy with (Race24 rims, Sapin CX spokes on Hope Pro2 Evo hubs). They're very light for a disc wheel and freewheel forever.
Hi I am in a similar situation. Very pleased with the Crosslight when running 32 mm tyres but when I swapped to 28 mm running at 80 psi I had plenty of issues with spokes - 3 spokes broken in 1 month and spokes loosing their tension. I am thinking of upgarding all teh spokes. Could someone advise what spokes to go for (make and length) Thanks!
