Carbon Rims At Aluminum Prices – GTL-Bike’s 29+ Carbon Rim Review

In a recent search for affordable 29+ carbon wheels, I came across GTL-Bike and I liked what I found. They sent me a pair of rims to review. In today’s video we toss them on an Esker Japhy to see what they feel like. They have some fantastic features at the price of some aluminum rims. What do you think? At this price, would you want carbon or aluminum rims? GTL-Bike has rims of all shapes and sizes if you’re looking for an inexpensive carbon rim. More info about these rims here:
