Perhaps I’m reading things wrong, but I can’t seem to find which rims go with the 29" nanoraptor tire. I’ve only really looked at the unicycle.com web catalog - but nothing jumps out and says “this is a 28” rim and is the perfect companion for the 29" nanoraptor!" Can anybody tell me which is the rim (or wheelset) I’m looking for?
I’d like to buy the whole wheelset if I get it. Also, it would be nice if I could find a black one.
I think the widest 700c rim you can find will work. Aren’t there 700c x 48 or 700c x 52 rims?
I’m using an Alex Adventurer 700c x 24.9mm rim. Sun makes a 700c x 27.5mm rim that looks like a good one too called “Rhyno Lite ATB”.
I think most 26" mountain bike rims are 24mm wide and work well with tires up to 2.4" wide or so.
It’s interesting how quickly I’m learning about all this stuff, yet how big the gaps are in my knowledge.
This week’s dumb question: what is 700c? From context, I thought it was a narrow racing wheel - I guess I was wrong.
I can’t find any rims or wheelsets listed at Unicycle.com described as 700c. But, as for Rhynolite, there is this:
But they are both 26". Isn’t the rim for the nanoraptor supposed to be 28"?
Are these 700c rims?

700c refers (well, sort of) to the diameter of the wheel. Racing wheels
use 700c rims for the most part. But, so do some hybrid and cyclecross
bikes, and, it turns out, the Nanoraptor 29".
