Strengths:    Wide Rim, Spoke Pattern(stronger), Stiff, Aesthetics, Price

Weaknesses:    Weight(dont really care, Tires are near impossible to mount with raised rubber section in place. Rubber section removed shortly after buying, no more problems with tire mounting. May lose the pinch flat protection, not too worried about it, Just want a strong wheelset.

Bottom Line:   
Can't beat the price, have been stiff and durable so far, great set of backup wheels for a budget freeerider.

Date Reviewed: September 14, 2010

Strengths:    Like the wide rim and the strength and spoke pattern.

Weaknesses:    The plastic bead or strip that runs inside the rim to prevent pinch flats adds extra weight and also makes it very, very difficult to remove your tire. I ran a 2.5 on it and wound up cracking the rim just trying to remove it,I was almost ready to cut the tire just to get it out. I feel that this would be horrible if you were to get a flat out in the woods, it would probably be faster to walk out than change it.

Bottom Line:   
Bottom line is that it was a good concept and that's about it, it should have stayed a concept and not be put on the market. Good thing I didn't pay what some are selling them for. I wouldn't recommend them to be honest.

Gegenheimer Wins hafjell Eliminator on 26 inches

So I just watched the UCI Hafjell XCE. The winner for the men's was Simon Gegenheimer on a 26 inch hardtail! I'm a noob to mountain biking and I have a 29er hardtail, but this win makes me wonder if the industry has made a mistake? Or is this win an outlier? What are you're thoughts?Read More »

Amature Eliminator?

So it seems like the UCI has finally figured out (no jokes here) how to make an eliminator course. The Nove Mesto and Val Di Sole course were darn good! I was thinking this morning that I would like to try this format. I wonder when/if we will see Eliminator at the National level or even in a local ... Read More »

UCI xc Eliminator round 2 pure bs?

I recently watched the round 2 and I was surprise that it was entirely different from the exciting round 1. The format is completely different. Does UCI have a racing format or guidlines for this new flat form of racing? Or they are just afraid that Lopes and Ibis would smoke all the 20 years old ri ... Read More »

Eliminator WC

Did anyone else see lopes dominate the first world cup eliminator today? He looked as if he's been doIng it his whole life, which in a way I guess he has. Everyone else has some serious catching up to do. Looking good rocking the Tranny, too! In other news, pedal technology sucks. There must have ... Read More »

Marzocchi/Eliminator wheels/20mm axle problem

I purchased a Marzocchi 55 TST air fork and T.H.E. Eliminator wheelset for a bike my son's building. The fork uses 20mm QR axel and the front wheel uses 20mm thru axel. I just assumed they were compatible as I've never delt with 20mm axels. The axel will not feed through the one side of the hub. ... Read More »
