Kinlin TL23 650b, Industry Nine Torch Road/CX Centerlock for XD
The Kinlin TL23 is a hidden gem, the perfect 650b rim for the new breed of 700c/650b convertible gravel and adventure bikes. 23mm interior width is ideal for 30 to 45mm tires, and tubeless set up is a snap. 420g rim weight and fit and finish that belong on a way higher priced rim from a fancy brand.
I9 Torch hubs are simple, light, have fast engagement, are extremely well built, and are the prettiest hubs you'll see. Available in all 11 I9 colors, but we can't fit them all in the product options so please just ask if you want a color that you don't see.
Laced 2x throughout for 28h builds and 3x for 32h wheels, using black Wheelsmith DB14 spokes and black brass Wheelsmith nipples. Tubeless tape installed is included.
