Strengths:    I originally bought these wheels in 2003, had a hub failure a couple months ago....pretty good life..13 years. Couldn't buy the part because wheel was too old. Joe at spinergy hooked me up in a big way. Not only do these wheels stay trew, but they're light as hell and strong. Weather I'm riding road or dirt..I'll be rolling on spinergy wheels, if for no other reason than the absolutely kick ass customer support...thanks again Joe...so glad to be rolling again

Weaknesses:    Zero....you can't go wrong with customer service like these guys have

Bottom Line:   
These wheels kick ass, stay true, and look great

Strengths:    They look great, pretty light, very low maintenance, excellent Spinergy customer service.

Weaknesses:    The rim is pretty narrow, so it may be tough to run them tubeless safely. I put 2 layers of tape and higher up on the side of the rim, but still had no luck.

Bottom Line:   
I have had these rims for a little over a year and have close to 2000 miles on them and have been very happy. They look awesome, very low maintenance (have not had to true them), the fiber dampens the ride, etc. The only drawback to me is that I could not run them tubeless without worrying that the tires would burp. The guys at Spinergy are great to deal with. Pretty sure I will be buying another set of Xyclones for a hardtail project I plan on starting soon,

Strengths:    Light..aggressive look..strong..easy change axle sizes without having to replace hubs

Weaknesses:    Being that the 27.5 industry is predominantly all mountain..Spinergy needs to put an (all-mountain rim/wider rim) in their lineup the problem im having with 2.3 or 2.4 wide tires with low pressure ill get extreme tire roll..i know the easy fix is to run high tire pressure well if thats the case then this throws out fine tuning your ride when it comes to those vital seconds in racing where tires pressure is key..Schwalbe suggest running 23-28 psi on their 2.3-2.4 tires for optimal performance
it wont work on these wheels youll get really bad tire roll going into jumps or coming off a jump youll find yourself over correcting and thats not good same applies to tight turns




Bottom Line:   
Bottom line is i have always owned Spinergy wheels 26ers 29ers and now 27.5 cause they are very strong and last
not to mention they look good and when you look good you feel good and when you feel good you ride good
but PLEASE make a 27.5 all mountain wider rim wheelset Spinergy ???

Strengths:    Super light, look great, stay true, hubs convertible to different axle sizes, work great tubeless and awesome after sales support!

Weaknesses:    I haven't found any yet.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these wheels on a whim for a great price at a bike show, the dealer selling them highly recommended them and I was looking for a nice light weight XC wheel and the Spinergy Xyclone Disc fit the bill perfectly and the price was right so I gave them a shot.

In between the time I purchased these wheels which were setup with the standard QR axles I ended up building a new MTB which had a 15QR axle on the fork so without a conversion I wouldn't be able to use the wheels. So I contacted Joe at Spinergy and he replied quickly and hooked me up with everything I needed to convert to the new axle. Truly a class act and really great guy, I have emailed back and forth with him numerous times!

So now I have the wheels setup running tubeless (which was super easy to do) with 1.95 Kenda Nevegal Lite front and rear and have been riding with this setup from the beginning of the season with zero issues from the wheels. They are stiff and light, the free hub has great engagement and the PBO spokes are really strong as I've had numerous sticks kicked up into my rear spokes and they just sliced right thru them with out issue. Basically an all round great wheelset at a great price with great support, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another set!

Strengths:    Looks Cool, sounds cool, light, and WAY stronger than they look. Real Chick Magnets!!!
Never had any problem with them other than attracting thieves!
Great Customer Service!!!


Weaknesses:    No built in alarm system.

Bottom Line:   
I'm actually on my 2nd set of Spinergy's. 1st set got stolen, along with my Yeti 575, so I got another Yeti off CraigsList and another set of Spinergy's off eBay. Never had Any problem a'tall with these wheels. At 223 with my CamelBack, I used to worry about the wheels holding up, but they never once got out of true despite bashing 'em pretty hard around Denver, Boulder, Buffalo Creek, Breck, Fruita, and Moab.
Pulled an endo 1/2 way thru Horsethief Bench a couple months ago, rear wheel came down sideways on a rock and bent the Xyclone rim about 1 1/2 inch. Bummers!!! Spokes held it all together just fine though and we finished the ride, just a bit wobbly on cornering.
Contacted Joe D at Spinergy and he gave me a RTA to ship him the wheel and they'd look at it. A couple weeks later, I got the wheel back with new rim, lots of new spokes, reman'd hub,,, basically a whole new wheel for just a few bucks.
Now That's GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
Thanks Joe!!!

Strengths:    Stay true. Light. Strong.

Weaknesses:    Like any wheel, you need to change the bearings once in a while. Also, the end caps came loose a couple months after I bought them--but that was easy fix.

Bottom Line:   
Let me tell you: these wheels stay true. I've had them for over four years on two different frames. I've popped tubes on rock gardens, taken drops, and recently was in an accident where my front wheel was turned too sharp and as it skid along pine needles and rocks got jammed in between the tire and rim--the wheel stayed true.
The front bearings aren't too hard to replace and they are a standard size so you can buy new ones from mcmaster-carr. I have not worked on the hub yet, so I don't have information on it. I recently upgraded to a 15mm through-axle on the front, which can be had for $50 from bikebling.
I definitely recommend these.

The steel notched Ring which is only pressed into rear hub breaks free and you'll be going no where fast.No warranty when bought used so check the warr. before you buy.

Strengths:    Light, strong, and requies little maintenance

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I have used this wheelset for the past three years had they have exceeded all expectations. I feel comfortable riding them in the roughest trails and have never had to true them. Only had 2 minor problems. The front wheel caps loosened up and make a noise, but this was easily fixed by using hex wrenches to tighten them. After riding them about a year the rear hub stopped engaging because it had not been maintained. It was very simple to take the hub apart and clean and re lube.

I don't think there is a better wheelset value at this price range and I am going to buy a new wheelset for the Yeti ASL I am building.

Strengths:    Ridiculously light. Stiff. Terrific price point. Strong.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Wow. I knew I was taking a step up in the world but I was shocked. Used a scale for before and afters and I shed over a pound from each wheel. Came true from the factory, haven't needed to tighten them yet. The value of these things is incredible. Building/buying a "normal" premium wheelset would be at least $200 more. The colour is a little bling but I'm proud to show them off.

Interested to see how durable they will be over a few years of riding but so far I'm thrilled.

Date Reviewed: April 15, 2010

Strengths:    Light & durable. Improved support from mfg. 8 years old and still true.

Weaknesses:    Same flex noticed in other reviews. "No fault replacement" is not really worth it. (you can find online cheaper)

Bottom Line:   
I have been riding this wheel since 2002. It has thousands of miles on them. It is light and durable. I have hit up to 225lbs, and in 8 years this wheel has never needed to be trued and has only had one failure that the mfg was very helpful in resolving. They were not always this way, so I am glad to see it has improved. My next wheel set will be another Spinergy. Recommendation: Use Mobil 1 oil to lubricate the prawls.
