Strengths:    Um, heavy? Okay, none.

Weaknesses:    Heavy as hell. It lasted all of three rides before the internals started grinding. Totally garbage, but functions.

Bottom Line:   
Only get this wheelset if you plan on upgrading very quickly. Yet again, Bontrager makes more low end garbage. I think only pros get the quality stuff and Bontrager works off of the publicity then sells garbage.

Strengths:    Even when Freehub boby is shot you can still ride it while you wait the 1 mo for a replacement

Weaknesses:    freehub body, Bontrager stock,

Bottom Line:   
The hub is crap. Ride it until it breaks then replace it. 1000 mi in and it is nearly seized. Also these things are on backorder from Bontrager for forever I guess. I am going to buy a real hub.

Strengths:    Strengths?

Weaknesses:    lockring, freehub or was that freehub, lockring...bearings

Bottom Line:   
Bad: As often as a singlespeed cog is changed the lockring is not durable.
Worse: The freehub...again durability, they do not last long 3 to 5 months tops.
Worst: You have to remove the axle and the bearing to replace the sh!#y freehub. After a couple of freehubs the bearing is junk! I guess that means the freehub is actually the worst thing.

Race fork for 29er Single Speed

Looking for advice on my new race build. After 3 seasons on my Superfly single speed, I have decided that its time for a new race sled. Going with a Pivot Les frame and moving many of the superfly parts over to the Les. The one thing I'll need to upgrade is the fork, which is a Fox G2 80 mm RLT. ... Read More »

Single Speed Race Report: Tahoe-Sierra 100 MTB Race

Had a good race on the SS recently at the Tahoe-Sierra 100 MTB race in NorCal. Final stats were about 103 miles and close to 15,000 feet of climbing. Lot's of downhill and lots of insane uphill that had EVERYONE hiking (SS'ers and geared guys). Tinker Juarez, at 51 years old, won the whole thin ... Read More »

Race Face single speed crank?

Howdy! This one is stumping me... I'm setting up the new bike as a 1x10. I have a 104b.c.d. single speed chain ring and bash I want to use. I want to go with a Race Face Turbine. As best I can tell, the crank arms come in 2 (3?) sizes. There is a "2x10" crank, and that is 80/120 B.C.D. The ... Read More »

Single Speed Wins Whiskey 50 Amateur Race??

WTF? I was there and got my a$$ handed to me or any number of reasons. However, I still can't get over how fast this Nate Miller guy went on a 34x20. I used to be a pretty damn fast cyclist, but even if I had time to train, a lighter bike, blah, blah, blah, I don't think I could come within 20 m ... Read More »
