Well, it didn't take long for me to wipe out the rear rim on my '19 P3. I have a Hope Pro 4 SS hub that I'll be lacing up. I'm thinking of going with a Spank Spoon 32 rim, but I'm open to suggestions from a similar price point. Any thoughts?

Sunringle inferno 29 is slightly less expensive, quite a bit lighter and reasonably strong.
If your willing to spend a bit more you cant go wrong with a DT Swiss EX471, nice and strong and much lighter.

I appreciate the suggestions and will look further into those options.

I rock the spoons on my jump bike and they're great, I'd cosign those. Plenty of good stuff out there too.

Muchas gracias. I actually decided to go with the spoon 32 and should have it installed by Thursday. I'm looking forward to the upgrade!

FWIW the less expensive rims from both Spank and NS have a pinned joint. I've always had better luck with welded rims which also usually have a better strength to weight ratio. Not a real big deal as long as you maintain decent spoke tension, just thought I'd throw it out there.

Halos are the best of the best
