Hopefully there's some folks with more specific knowledge about these wheels than myself, but my only experience from Vuelta was a pair of Grimeca disk brakes (owned by Vuelta) which are a lot like the older shimano XT brakes. I found the quality of those to be below my expectations as they didn't work very well and seemed of very low quality.

I would personally shy away from these wheels unless you find some folks that can specically vouch for them. Vuelta hasn't made me a fan, and there are a lot of other good alternatives... Besides, I'm not sure that I'd trust any company that makes mountain bike wheels like the one below that I found on their website (www.vueltausa.com, then go to products, grimeca, mag wheels)

Hopefully that helps....

hey, I used a set of vuelta XC disc specific wheels in RED. Nice looking wheelset, but pretty heavy. I used them for a while and they stayed in true, but then I upgraded to a lighter set of wheels. If you can get them for around $100 US like I did ( on ebay) its a good deal.
