Strengths:    Feels firm and well constructed

Weaknesses:    Only 32 spokes. Don't care for the black/silver color scheme, but I pefer that over all black.

Bottom Line:   
Shimano Deore wheel [and hub] with Rhyno rim. Nice wheel. LBS agreed to sell only the front disc wheel to me because I had already purchased a new rear wheel from another shop. Mistake on my part was to buy the rear wheel at REI before checking with a good LBS. REI had the only 36-spoke brass nipple (DT Swiss)wheels I could find. The Deore/Sun Rhynos are 32-spoke, which allegedly won't make a difference if the front wheel is well built and strong. But bike expert says the more spokes the better and that manufacturers are forgoing those 4 extra spokes only to save costs.

The brakes seem to work fine from a hydraulic standpoint. However, when I lock the brake on the front ... Read More »

Dear All, I am having hell with my deore m595 brakes.
