Nice and light alternate for a contemporary Rando bike

This was my first build of a disk only wheel. I got the white rim, which appears to have an epoxy type paint inside and out, and is very smooth. Graphics are all black, and not as in-your-face as some these days. I would prefer no graphics.

The eyelets are all centered on the rim, are single wall attachment, not double. Holes have no angle for left and right side spokes. This simplifies the build, but it seems they enlarged the spoke holes to allow for the spoke angles. This in turn seems to make the nipples a tad harder to turn, so I used a drop of oil in each hole. Time will tell if this affects durability. Nipples were easy to insert without dropping in the rim.

The wheel did not come out as round or straight as I am used to with rim brake rims. I had to compromise slightly between evenness of spoke tension and a tad of wobble. This was minor though, would in no way affect performance or durability with disks, more the perfectionist speaking here.

I mounted Compass Babyshoe Pass tires on it. Doable by hand, with Stan's thin rim tape and tubes, but not easy: this is tubeless ready, after all. No miles yet on these wheels.

Pros: Light, white, tight, eyelets, easy build, subdued graphics

Cons: Slight wobble/uneven spoke tension, graphics all around
