Strengths:    Strong, stiff, light, "Bling" factor, hubs spin soooo smooth...and tubeless!

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
So far so VERY GOOD! I like these at least as much as my SLR's on my race bike. Not a bad price for such a nice wheelset. Wish they came with Ti skewers but stock ones aren't bad. Also, so far the regular Rocket Ron's tires I'm running tubeless (w/ stan's sealant) work and ride AWESOME!

Rim brake specific 26" mtb wheelset?

Looking for some recommendations. The only set I've found so far is the Mavic Crossride UB. Are these decent? Any other ideas? Trying to stay around 250 max. I'd like a rim brake specific set without mounting points for a disc. Going to be running Maxxis Hookworms on them if that matters.Read More »

Looking for an used 26 inch carbon frame MTB for my son.

My 9 year old son rides a 26inch alum bicycle now but at almost 30 lbs it's tough for him as he only weighs 60 lbs or so. Do you know of any inexpensive 26 inch carbon light bicycles that sell on ebay these days? I imagine used 26inch HT's would be flooding the market these days. THanks.Read More »

converting 26" mtb for a small cross bike

I coach a few kids who are between 24" wheel 'cross bikes and 700c bikes. Thinking of converting a 26" mtb to 'cross for them. I figure early 90's mtbs made for rigid forks are the easiest choice. But could something lighter, like this work? [url= ... Read More »

commuter wheels for a SS (normally 26") MTB

Hi gang. I'm the very lucky owner of a killer 26" Phil Wood SS, which gets regular trail use. I will be needing a commuter daily for at least the next 2 years for a new job. I don't want to use the roady (only either 9 or 15km trip). I don't want to swap tyres every time I want to hit the dirt (t ... Read More »
