Then it was time to select a rim, spokes, and nipples. I debated over the rims but settled on the Sun EQ27 29er rim. It is a good rim that is reasonably light and should convert to tubeless fairly easy. For spokes I picked my favorite Wheelsmith DB14 (2.0-1.7-2.0) and brass nipples. 32h and 3x lacing.
Wheel weight should come out at just under 1000g which is fairly light for a rear 29er wheel with a 27mm wide rim.
Pictures to follow
UPDATE-I built the wheel this weekend, it came out real nice and a total weight of 1100g including the tubeless rim tape.
