I guess, this is for both wheels
the original Kineo desing I do not really like, but I.m interested what will the the price for a set that includes 6 inch rear wheel
+ may be they will redesign something towards more "retro / vintage" style, than I could think about ordering them.

I really like what they are offering.
I'm not sure how many of us however will be interested in spending that kind of money on a couple of new wheels.
I think I would.
I'm not sure I should even type that :eek:

I cannot wait to see and hear more. Thank you very much for all of the information.

It is of course the price for both wheels. Don't expect a huge difference between 5,5" en 6" rear wheel.
The brake disc and ABS rotor will be taken of the original wheels to put on the Kineo ones.
I don't like the design much more than you Becker, but I'm sure this construction will remain tubeless.
If Alpina can prove with a 10 year warranty that their tubeless kit will work, I prefer the Alpina solution.

Alpina pro matrix carbon fibre would be my choice with loads of carbon dripping from the 9T of course:D:D

The website is in German. Can someone post some pics of these wheels so we can have a better idea of what we are talking about here? I looked on the site but I couldn't really find any.

Agree that would be my choice I have Alpine STS tubeless on my Sport Classic and have had no issues and the finish is very good. I dealt with the factory directly in Italy and they were good but even better there is a UK supplier now.

Carbon Matrix rims are lovely but I would like to use the original hubs to save some pennies, so I believe you can buy the rims and the nipples and spokes as a kit. I have read there is a special jig/machine required to true up tubeless wheels correctly so will probably have to send them away to get done! Not sure if Alpina UK provide this service????

Not sure if anyone has seen this bike before... Uses Kineo wheels and I have to say I quite like it.

Think I'll definitely be going town the tubeless route and it'll be between Alpina and Kineo when I decide, but I see that Borrani also do tubeless spoked wheels too....

At present Kineo are in front as I like the look a little more and there won't be trouble with spoke nipple seals leaking in the future.....

Won't be rushing into anything though, it's a big investment! ;)
