Strengths:    Elegant but tough
puts spoke nipples on the hub where they belong
no more wheel truing!!!

Weaknesses:    a tad pricy

Bottom Line:   
Cane Creek's wheelsets are excellent. Not cheap, but fantastic build quality and top-notch design. The Disc-V's are beefy, but they feel light because of their low rotational inertia. Worth the investment.

I have not had to touch a wheel with a spoke wrench afterr six months of abuse from an aggressive 90kg rider on a hardtail aluminum frame.

Date Reviewed: March 28, 2000

Strengths:    Weight advantage over other disc wheelsets, stainless steel straight pull spoke, trued at hub, bombproof! Supreme acceleration and GOOD LOOKS.

Weaknesses:    None found

Bottom Line:   
You absolutely will not find a lighter stronger disc specific wheelset. I have been riding and abusing these rims for three months and haven't had to touch them yet. Cane Creek is a friendly, easy to deal with company. They have my full endorsement. I work at a Bike Shop and can ride any wheels I would like. The Cane Creeks have it hands down.

help. Disc brakes only rub when riding

Like the title says. I can spin my rear wheel for days and it won't touch, but as soon as I get on the bike and start pedaling it's rubbing hard. I had to walk my bike back from class because I didn't want to damage the disc or pas it was rubbing that bad. Also, it stop rubbing if, when I am riding, ... Read More »
