Smooth and strong but hope the rim lasts longer!

PostedMarch 9, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
This is the second one of these wheels I've bought, albeit the last one had the disc variant of the hub. I ran the last one on my commuting bike for 18 months (~3000 miles) after which the rim split. It was a circumferential split so was most likely caused by tire pressure. I was using 2" wide tires, which is the maximum limit for these rims. I've changed for 1.75" ones in the hope of getting a little more life out of this one. However, within that 18 months I never had to touch a spoke, the wheel stayed perfectly true.

Poor hub and not quite true

PostedFebruary 6, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality
The hub on this wheel is very poor quality and this lets the wheel down.. for another £20ish you could seek out a wheel with a Shimano Deore Hub. I won't make this mistake again. All parts of the wheel are important but the hub is the heart of the wheel and the poor quality, for me, actually makes a different to the quality of the ride.
I'm certain I can feel the difference! Is just doesn't roll like my last wheel did.. I guess we all know we 'get what we pay for' but sometimes its almost not worth bothering when the quality is so poor!
In all fairness the rim for the money is fine, the spokes are quite heavy but ok.
That said, it works.. all-be-it with a slight buckle (though this isn't uncommon on new wheels in my experience, part of the bedding in process it seems).
My advice.. pay a bit more and get a better hub.

A quality product at an affordable price.

PostedAugust 8, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
This wheel offers strength, combined with a reasonably light weight. It looks good on the bike too. I feel confident that this wheel will take the punishment of off-road riding. The rim looks thick enough to cope with grit etc that inevitably will get between the rim and the brakes when riding.
