Kineo wheels.

I am thinking of putting a set of Kineo wheels on my Scrambler. Like
this tubeless version, they will not leak air. Anyone that have a set mounted?
Experience? ...

That is a very cool find. Now we have two tubeless but withspokes alternative wheels for our bikes

As you know,I have the Alpinas on my bike, but it seems as ifthese would alsomake a good alternative. From the photos it looks as if the nipples do not gothrough the rima, thus eliminating potential airleak there. That is better than the Alpinas, which may leak (mine did initially, but do not anymore).

However,the rims with theirattachment gizmos for the spokes look likethey could potentiallybe heavier than the Alpina rims with nipples. If they are,that would mean more rotational mass than the Alpinas. It would be great if somebody knew more about this.

The hubs look very slim and lightweight. Maybe even more than the Alpina ones?? I used the original (post 2008) Triumph hubs, so this would onlybe interesting for those purchasing complete wheels.

Do they the same and/or more dimensions than Alpina? That could be interesting for those that want to go for non-stock dimensions.

Then ofcourse are the questions of build-quality and reliabiliy. It would be interesting to see a comparison of the two brands.

Finally, It is cool that both these are Italian, and that us Europeans for once don't have to order our parts from the US

I too will be interested to see what's available on these. I'd be curious about the cost of getting these to the States, since it seems almost impossible to get Alpinas here. Then like TB mentioned will they offer different sizes for those wanting to go with something other than stock. Lastly what options we have as far as the hubs go since I'm looking at something a little different.

They do look good, I'm wondering about price though (and I know they won't be cheap) shipped to the UK. Do they have a web-site?

www.in-motion.it

On a different forum there was talk of euro 2000 for a set (incl VAT). Which would place them rougly at the same price-level as Alpina wheels.

Try 2350 euros from http://international.specialthings.i...kineo+thruxton

We've been discussing them on the cafe RAT forum (classic and vintage). Available for Bonnie and Thrux in 17". Scram, not so much.

2350 Euro = $3032 Us dollars plus shipping....Thats 101 PAIR of $15.00 tubes. Figure a new set of tires every 10,000 miles....at a MILLION Miles you break even. I can appreciate the work that goes into the product....but the price is just plain stupid.

Agreed on the silly pricing, but some guys would prefer the piece of mind that comes with a tubeless tire, the additional sizes, and the ease of repair while out on the road. That said I won't be springing for a set anytime soon.
