Rear Rim DT Swiss M1700 Spline 35 probably a bit too wide for this frame, the rear is limited to a 2.4 tire and not all 2.4 tires work well on a i35 rim. WTB seems to work the best on the wide rims.

Additional Info Not the best bike out there, I would never buy one for retail ( got mine used in 2019 thank god) but it has been solid and can take a serious beating! Pretty maintenance intensive though, I have to pull it apart about every 3 months to service the pivots or it will start creaking like a haunted house in a windstorm. These bikes were designed quite a while ago and are way passed due for an update, I'm 5'10 and chose a medium for the seat tube clearance, but I wish I had the reach of the large frame. I really start to notice how short this bike is when things start getting fast.
