Are you a racer or a really smooth dirt/park rider?
If not then I wouldn't really recommend 28h wheels.

You can see here that really the only rims available in 28h are made for racing

I never rode or even know anything about 28H wheels.
I know for a fact they're mostly used in race bikes, but I'm sure if your smooth at riding park they'll hold up fine.
From what I see all 28H rims on dans are really narrow and with a pinned seam.
Doesn't mean they aren't good I know a guy who kills it riding Fly Pyramids.
But I still wouldn't risk it.
If I were you I would try selling the for more and make some profit.

I still wouldn't trust doing big stuff with those wheels.
I think they could be for really strict park riding, like flowing bowls.

28 is for racing.......if you ride freestyle with them.....youl probably eat shit and break them, might take a few sessions but it will probably happen.

Can i lace it to another rim? Like 36 or 42 hole rim and leave a gap between the spoke holes?

Yeah it should be possible, but it won't be very strong and BTW 42 Spoke Rims don't exist.

I might swap the profile wheels + my éclat onyx cranks for GSport ribcage rims and GSport hubs and exposure infinity cranks

|

4/6/2013 9:42 AM

Sorry, 48 hole rims*

Your choice, those Wheels would be great but those Cranks aren't the best, although I'm sure you know that.

yeah, got spare KHE Hindenburgs in my garage

|

I wouldn't ride anything made by Exposure, they seem cheap as fuck.
Just sell the Profiles and problem solved, I would never trade some Eclat Onyx.

Not in uk, hardly any rims, I got some of eBay and they are laced ready for the swap

Stay away from the exposure stuff. Cheap shite. A semi local sells that crap and tries to market it as legit because kids will fall for the "you get what you pay for" thing, instead of researching things.

See if you can trade the KHE cranks for the wheelset and exposures instead of the onyx.

Honestly, cosmetically and on the outside, they look super cheap and shitty. I know they're bullet proof though.

I actually like the look of them for some reason the front one reminds me of a Vandero with a slimmer shell in the center and the rear one looks like a beefier Mix.
I don't have money for new hubs and I'm saving for a frame so yeah.
