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 Sheldonbrown.com says the more spokes the better and that manufacturers are forgoing those 4 extra spokes only to save costs.

Shimano Deore Disc Brakes

Can anyone recommend a good sintered metal disc brake bad for Shimano Deore M596 brakes? Are these brake compatible with sintered metal or do they get too hot? This is for my wife's bike so she will be braking a lot. Should I stay with resin pads?? They seem to wear out so quick.Read More »
