    I haven’t paid much attention recently but Light Bicycle had an office on the west coast (LA?) that sped up US delivery times for in stock items and handled warranties

    Ill be going back to aluminium rims. My light bicycle rims were bombproof and they have great customer service and lifetime warranree option for $50. Tons of good reedback on WAO.they run a good business and i havent heard a complaint on them. I just dont like the stiffness of carbon, no real weight savings and more $. Initially i liked the responsiveness when i jumped on the pedals but they seem a bit harsh pounding through the rough. Different strokes i guess. Depends on your use and where you ride and shat you want out of a wheel
    Done with carbon bars and 35mm diameter size too

    When you run the math going LB vs high end aluminum. You pay $100 more per wheel and save 1/2lbs per rim. That math works for me but no way I would go high end carbon wheels and spend $600 more per wheel.

    Is that a negative? Building up on older non boost 29er ht frame and after poking around a bit settled on these. Hoping they work
