Strengths:    The tyre itself is good but..

Weaknesses:    .. it's a 24 spokes tyre.

Bottom Line:   
It came with my bike (Vitus Sommet II).
The tyre is just like any other tyre: it does its job. The main issue here is that it has 24 spokes, so if you need to change the rim or the hub, you'll need to buy a 24h rim/hub, which is absolutely a rarity. So basically it's like you invest in something and after a couple of years, because there are no spare parts easily available (the tyre doesn't even exist anymore on the official website!), you just have to throw it away. Better off buying a normal 32 spokes tyre.
Good thing these tyres don't seem to be available anymore anywhere, but I'll leave this comment as a warning: when you buy something, just get the most common configuration!

Strengths:    Good price, seems like a good wheel. Looks cool.

Weaknesses:    Brand new, has stiff feeling hub and freehub. I couldn't put a SRAM cassette on it without putting a (shorter) Shimano lockring. The SRAM lockring was running into a plastic seal in the freehub body...using the smaller lockring was actually the Easton mechanic's recommendation..

Bottom Line:   
Haven't ridden it yet, the difficulties with the hub described above made me almost send it back. We'll see how the hub holds up. If it disintegrates or totally sh!ts the bed, I'll update this review.

Easton Vice XLT or Mavic Crossmax Enduro?

Which wheels would you recommend for an Ibis Mojo SL (converting to 650b)? Main concerns are stiffness, reliability, and rear tire clearance. Not sure if 19 mm vs 21 mm internal width will make much of a difference.Read More »

Sell me on Grand Junction off-road or vice-versa

I got an email today from epic rides today about my corral certificate for an up coming Epic Rides venue. Needless to say it got my mind thinking about GJ. For those of you that have been please tell me: 1. Why GJ is worth the drive? 2. Is it as much fun as Whiskey Off-road (riding)? 3. I ... Read More »

Has anyone used shimano 785 levers with 975 calipers or vice versa?

Ok I have some dual control levers hooked to 975 calipers. I am getting a different setup and have to change shifters. Thus I need new brake levers. Getting 975 levers was very expensive so I thought I would just purchase a set of 785 XT brakes, but the hose is now different. I like the IS X ... Read More »
