I upgraded to these on my electric bicycle and think the bike should have come with these in the first place. Mine were very well protected and packed so they were perfect when I received them (no damage whatsoever). I laced the rim onto the existing spokes and the inside diameter is a just a little smaller than my old rim, but everything worked out great with the spokes coming up just flush with the nipple (perfect!). Be careful not to drop any nipples into the void. If you do, you'll need to use gravity to get the nipple close to the valve hole, then very slowly lift the rim up until the nipple rolls into view at the valve hole (this took me a while to figure out). Once laced up, the wheel was very easy to true, and my Michelins seated perfectly. Note: Pay attention to how you want the labels to look while lacing on the rims. The labels were not oriented identically on both rims and in hindsight I would have liked "Velocity" visible on the front and "Blunt" visible on the rear, with the 35mm label the same orientation on both front and rear.

Pros: Very true. I'm very pleased. The width is exactly what I was looking for.

Cons: Label orientation. Be careful when lacing that nipples don't fall inside the rim.

Great Rim

I bought the Velocity Duallis for my fatbike bike so I thought I would give the Blunt 35mm a try for my 29er. I don't run suspension on my 29r and was getting lots of pinch flats so I thought I would go with a 35mm for a wider footprint I also ride sandy trails so this helped also. And surprising the wheel was lighter then the wheel I had on. The bike is also my bikepacking bike. I run a 2.4 tire on the rim and fits great on my Giant xtc 29er

Pros: Strong wider footprint and pretty light for a wider rim. Reduces pinch flats . Great for bikepacking.

Cons: Yeah maybe heavier then a 23mm wide rim but not the one I had on my bike.
