We swung by American Classic’s booth and were pointed toward this new rim, then the discussion quickly moved to Boost hubs (which are now shipping, BTW) and things got deep. So deep we’re planning a follow up video with founder Bill Shook. And so deep that we completely spaced on getting the details on their new 3834 mountain bike rims. So, we reached out and got a response so short and sweet it’s best we just present it verbatim…
From Ellen at American Classic:
“The rim is called 3834. It is 38mm wide outside, 34mm wide inside, rim depth 23mm. 27.5 is 472 grams. 29 is 496 grams. Tubeless ready.
“It’s a great mid plus rim when paired with a 2.6 tire for enduro and trail use. Tire width range is 2.2 – 3.0 depending on tread pattern and terrain.
“Bill beefed up the sidewalls for durability. Tires install easily and hook up tubeless securely, without burping. The combination of all these factors makes for a high performance wheelset for people who like to build their own.”
