Strengths:    Incredible Cane Creek quality and service. Strong wheelset, high average tension, "smooth as butter" crono 2.5 hub. (See below for the great deal)...

Weaknesses:    Noen that I can see..

Bottom Line:   
This deal is incredible at Sierra Trading Post. Listen to this.... for $229 you get Cane Creeks "Terros" Wheel set but Sierra Trading have somehow got this "Rim Brake" Wheelset done up with Cane Creek's Disc Hubs....so, for this great5 price, you get Front & Rear OCR Rims with Disc Ready Hubs. Go ahead and use your rim brakes and if you ever upgrade to discs, then you already have the wheels in place. In addition, I was advised by Cane Creek that these wheels are super strong...Highest Ratings here and you can rest assured that Cane Creek treats its customers right.

Strengths:    Lightweight, Good Looking

Weaknesses:    Horrible Durability

Bottom Line:   
I bought this wheelset after positive recommendations on the internet and from the bike shop. I biked on these wheels 4 times before the rear wheel was so bent it would barely turn. The bike shop had no luck straightening it out. After talking to Cane Creek directly, they basically told me tough luck and that wheels get bent even though my original wheel set I had lasted 7 years with no problems. I was incredibly disappointed in these wheels durability and the lack of pride of their product at Cane Creek. I would not recommend these wheels to anybody who expects wheels to handle normal cross country riding.

I DON'T SEE HOW YOU COULD BE DISAPPOINTED.

Cane Creek Terros disc

Has anyone tried this wheelset? Is it strong enough for aggressive trail riding? I only have 2 years of riding under my belt but I'm getting better and braver. I can do almost 4 footer drops and jumps now. My Mavic Crossride has been really good to me for a year and a half now with a couple of ... Read More »
