Are Ryde rims good?

They build a very stiff wheel for the weight due to the offset spoke bead which is very good. I’ve also built a number of pairs for customers and haven’t had any back. Their weight is very good for their width but sadly that seems to possibly come at a bit of a price. They seem to be rather susceptible to dings.

Are high profile rims better?

High profile rims (from 40 to 60mm) – They produce the highest speed for riding on the road because they cut the wind with ease. They are the most suitable for flat terrain which is where aerodynamics has the most influence.

Are offset rims worth it?

+ Asymmetric rims with offset spoke holes allow for better triangulation of spoke angles and balance of tensions in a wheel build, resulting in a stronger, stiffer (laterally due to proportionately more lateral tension), more compliant (radially due to proportionately less radial tension), and more reliable wheel.

What size wheels do pro cyclists use?

Racing bikes use the 700c size, which has a tire bead set diameter of 622 millimeters. This wheel size is the largest available for conventional bicycles, giving a racing bike more stability at high speeds.

Do any pro cyclists use clinchers?
