Are those weights with or without skewers? Any ideas? The big weight differences makes me wonder if the AC weight is w/o and Cane Creek is with. Then again, Crossmax SL discs weigh in around 1700 I believe so both those wheelsets are light for a 29er.threesixeight said:First post for me. Lots of good advise on this forum. I am in the process of buying a new set of wheels for my 29er. I weigh 180lbs and do cross country races. I have narrowed my wheelset down to 2. 1)American Classic Disc 29" MTB 350 wheels and 2)Zonos Disc Carbon wheels.
The AmClassic set is listed at 1590grams and the Cane Creek set is listed at 1804 grams.
I am looking for advise on people that have ridden the AmClassics as to durabilty, hub problems, are they good for day to day riding or only racing, etc... and if anyone has ridden the cane creeks? I don't know if they are available yet for anyone to have ridden them.
Are the AmClassics the lightest production wheelset? Thanks in advance.
I have a set of the Cane Creeks on order with my LBS, they should be here any day. I'll post my impressions once I get some ride time. I have not ridden the AC wheels.
