I went with a cheaper alternative...

Central Wheel Components sorted me out with black anodised Morad rims in 17x3.5" (takes 120/70) front and 17x5" (takes 160-170/70) rear which they drilled to suit the original hubs which I had powder coated black. Central Wheel also supplied the apropiate length black chrome spokes...

Anyone in the US pressed the button on the Kineo wheels for their Triumph? I am interested. For the high price I need to know they are perfect so keen to hear any opinions. I nearly purchased the Alpina wheels but kept hearing a high % of air leaks which has put me off.

Alternatively, anyone want to sell me a set of Carrozzeria's for a 2004 Thruxton?

What do the Kineo and Alpinas Weigh ?

For your info the Stock Triumph 2013 Scrambler rear wheel with bearings, seals and rim straps, no spacers or cush drive, no sprocket weight is 19 pounds 5 oz. The equivalent Talon rear wheel (Talon hub and Excel 17 x 3.5 rim with SS spokes) weighs 13 pounds 12 Oz. I have chosen the Talon set up because I will be running rim locks front (1) and rear (2) and low tire pressure for desert riding and tubeless will not work. I am still would like the weights just to compare. The rear tube is just about 1 pound....

The Talon complete front (19x2.5) with with bearings, seals and rim strap weighs 9 pound 12 Oz. I will have the front stock Triumph Scrambler weight when I get to it in about 2 weeks if interested.

The Kineo's look to be a bit heavy.

Also I have both front and rear wheels for sale. Both are in excellent condition with less than 2k miles. PM me if interested.
