Spotted on Chris Chance’s new Yo Eddy hardtails are a couple WTB Ci24 carbon fiber mountain bike rims. Word is they chose to show them off with Chance’s bikes to celebrate the fact that both brands have been on the dirt for a long, long time.
But, like the new bikes, these rims aren’t looking too far into the past. Built with a 24mm inside width, they’re coming in 29″ and 27.5″ sizes for sure, and these particular ones have 32 holes. Other than that, specs and details are being held until the Taipei show later this month. But hey, we’ve got pics!
As with their Frequency rims, the number in the model name refers to the inside width of 24mm. We know they have a UST bead shape, but all other information unknown.
Curtis from Fat Chance said they only received the rims, so they had White Industries build them up to their CLD (Center Lock Disc) hubs using WTB spokes. Weight for the wheelset was right at 1,550g.
Stay tuned for more.
