I had to put my Hans Damfs in the vice to break the bead

I guess that's the downside of using carbon rims.

Once you get used to it there are no downsides to using Carbon rims

And only with certain rims as I haven't had any issues in 2 1/2 years running 35mm hookless 29er LB rims.

So, I may be getting a single LB carbon rim 27mm inner, and have the option of building it up on either the front or rear wheel. Carbon nomad. I'm thinking put it on the front?

Or rear? If I like it I'll probably buy another over the winter to build a matching pair

I would put it on the back first. You'll get the most benefits there

I would put it on the front in case it's wider than the rim you currently have on there. That's where you can benefit from the traction the most!

Yup, it's gonna be a lot wider. Currently running 21mm inner on both front and back.

Great review! Thanks for posting! I helped them with the early designs of their 650b rims. Nancy has been very helpful with my orders and as a matter of fact there's a decent sized group of us in my home town riding LB hoops.

According to Nobl, their rims are not LB rims. Nobl have a little retaining lip on them, and the widths are different. They are both manufactured in the same city though, Xiamen...
Though 30 other carbon rim manufacturers are there too.
