Stan’s Fatbike Rim?

Props to Chad for forwarding this link…

Art’s Cyclery has an Interbike blog post where they showed a glimpse of a Stan’s fatbike rim, tubeless, that allegedly weighs 487 grams.  Photo courtesy of their blog.

That’s pretty darn light.  In looking at the picture, it looks pretty narrow…maybe 50mm?  Note that it’s a 3.8″ Larry on the rim, with no pressure in it, and the sidewalls are still bowed in quite a bit.  Interesting nonetheless.  (Man, that’s a shallow rim!)
