This wheel has done it's job. Have not had to true it, it feels light for a disc wheel. Hub works fine. I'll buy a complete set for my next ride.

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.

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.

REAR HUBSpecialized Hi Lo disc, 4 sealed cartridge bearings, 12mm thru-axle, 32h

Is it not possible to buy an 11 speed XD driver for this hub? I have this hub on a wheel set I've taken off of an Epic Comp Carbon in lieu of some race wheels with DT Swiss 240s, and converted the bike to 1x11. I want to use the take-off wheels as a spare / training wheel set, but I can't seem to l ... Read More »
