@Piece Maker, the tire is a Panaracer GravelKing SK 700 x 35C (https://shorturl.at/exD39). Yes, it is a carbon rim. It"s a 29'er I got from Light Bicycle (https://shorturl.at/jCRY3). It was difficult to source a 700c/29'er carbon rim with 36 holes. I had to settle with this one which is not ideal since it has a 2mm offset. But it seems to work fine.

I've been having fun machining the frames lately, the milling machine I got last year really opened up a bunch of new possibilities.

I didn't weight before and after, but it does save quite a bit surprisingly! Almost half the thickess came off in the process, keeping it stiff where it needs to be and shaving weight were I can

You get more in Bling factor than you save in weight I think
