Tyre fitting is ridiculus

PostedNovember 28, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: lack of information on tyre fitting problems
An excellent HUB and light wheel drastically let down by lack of information about how hard it is to get the tyres on. In fact some makes of tyre you may as well just give up on.
If you need to sort out a flat in the middle of no where then you best hope the mountain rescue know where you are!

An easy way to drop a lb of weight.

PostedOctober 15, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
i had no problem installing a standard tyre tubeless on these. Yes they're a tight fit, but as long as you follow the 'YouTube' instructions on how to go tubeless it's a quick and pain free process.
Saved at least a pound (500g) off previous wheel set and they are noticeably quicker in acceleration too.

Quality wheel

PostedMarch 2, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
These are great wheels - had mine for over a year now and they are true as ever despite hammering them to within an inch of their lives. Quality hubs too. These are the first tubeless wheelset I have owned and I too had difficulty getting tyres on to begin with. This was partly due to me not using the central groove on the rim to mount the tyre initally and partly due to the tyres themselves. I used Maxxis Ignitors which are an extremely tight fit and benefited from prestretching by inflating with a tube and left overnight before removing the tube and adding sealant in the usual way. I have since replaced these with Kenda Nevegals which were far easier to mount and arguably could have done this without the use of tyre levers.

Wrestling match

PostedJanuary 13, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: too difficult
I'm sure that the product itself is great, but I don't know yet as I have been unable to get the tyre onto the wheel. I have mountain biked for 14 years and I am able to change tyres by hand (no levers) including tubeless. After 3 attempts this one still eludes me. In case you're wondering, I was able to fit the same tyre on by DT Swiss tubeless wheel by hand.
If it is this hard in my garage, imagine how hard it will be on the hill on a wet, cold day (even if tubeless seldom fail, they do sometimes and you need to change the fluid every few months in any case)
