sold the koxx DH pro, bought myself a kh 24", street’ed it up. I noticed it came with the drilled rim ( kinda sketchy), i thought nothing of it. Until i ripped 3/4,s of the spokes out of it flipping a 9( well tiny steps so an 8). First day of riding and a taco the rim, BRUTAL!
it was weird because the spokes all popped out ( litteraly popped), except it sounded more like a gun shot.
just wondering if anyone else these problems when riding muni with it.
ill post pics in a bit, my buddy took some pictures of the after math
just buy a solid wide rim, maybe a dx32 or sun doublewide, or if you’re going really crazy and don’t care about weight, the large marge will put up with just about anything (might be really bad for street though! :D)
Kris himself has tacoed rims. I myself have 3 KH rims on my KH20 KH24 and KH29. no problems with them. I am regularly doing 3 foot drops and I don’t always manage to roll out. Then again I only weigh about 145 pounds.
I am much happier with the KH 47mm rims than the Alex 32mm.
yeah for someone whos been riding for over 6 years now, i always tension my rim before every ride ( never ride then stock). i dont know about warranty on this one, i was just checking with people to make sure it wasnt just a defective rim.
