Default Re: Strong Drive rim

I had an excel 21x1.6 dirtbike rim laced to mtb rear hub. The person who assembled the wheel used 9g spokes coz he said he couldn't find any spokes with the nipples that would fill the spoke holes.
It is just too heavy...I think I put $250 in on that experiment ( cost of rim, hub and assembly) it sits in the garage to remind me of where my money goes.
The dirtbike tire is even more heavy...

The dirtbike 21 rim is almost equal in diameter to the bicycle 26 inch rim...but I dont think it is the solution to the motored bicycle dilema of finding a stong and lite wheel.
