Tioga Factory XC rims - any info?


Devout Dirtbag
Anybody know anything about this rim? There's not much to go on. They are welded and are 28 hole. This is the xc version and there is also a wider dh version. They are sometimes called "factory xc".

One interesting feature is they have a tiny lip protruding out from the top edge of the rim. Although they are obviously meant for disc brakes, the wall thickness is thicker than a mavic x221.

The best info I can glean is from here:

I want to run these with v brakes so I'm curious to know if they were originally for rim brakes and just fully anodised or specifically built as disc only rims.

Had one of these on a USE SUB front wheel, all the info I could find was that it was disc only, from memory the rim had a red sticker stating as much (that I peeled off obviously :roll: )

I have a couple of these in the loft as I was going to build a matching rear wheel... but didn’t!
