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 Face Turbine 2x10 120 BCD single speed chainring? Renthal?

Hello ya'll. I recently bought a RF turbine crankset for my Karate Monkey with the intention of converting it to a singlespeed crank. What a pain in the dick this has been. First, it's not 104 BCD like you'd think, it's 120 BCD which hardly anyone uses and neither the aftermarket, nor RF har ... Read More »

1994 Bontrager Race Single Speed Build

I've been riding this one as a single speed with a Mag 21 fork for a while, but recently had the urge to go rigid with it, (hence the Bontrager Fork thread)... So last night after I stripped the frame down I started looking around the parts pile for stuff to swap out just for grins... Those ... Read More »

What race class should I enter on my single speed and why

I know the obvious answer is enter the SS class duh but there's other options as well for various reasons. The current race is the Temecula 12hr in SoCal in two weeks. I'm still rather new to SS less then 3 months and coming off a two year hiatus from MTBing. I've always been an endurance junky bu ... Read More »

What can/should I carry during race? (disc, single speed)

I have tubeless disc wheels and single speed. I figure nothing in neutral support is going to help me. Can I carry a tube, levers and CO2? In a pocket or seat pack? Or will I need to run it back to my own car and work on it there (depending if it's even worth it time-wise)? (Racing first time - and ... Read More »

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 »
