    Bought these as a full wheelset with Switch EVO hubs and very pleased. For just over ̏200 for the set - what a bargain! Lightweight, stiff and really well made, subtle grey graphics and wheels look nicely understated in all black. 2.4 High Roller II tyres were very tight to fit with inner tubes but have since converted to tubeless (using Superstar's tape and valves plus Stan's sealant) which was s

    Brake setup: Shimano Zee brakes Avid HS1 200/180mm rotors (F/R) originally came with Shimano Resin without radiators In short, they were just as good as the original Shimano Resins.

Excellent performance in all condit

It is direct line of fire. This bearing is a direct replacement for the bottom FSA bearing I had in my Trek 9.7 2011 (carbon frame) with Fox 32 Talas tapered

    Good in summer but appalling in winter. DO NOT BUY IF RIDING IN WET/MUDDY CONDITIONS as they wore out in less that one ride when it was muddy. However I would rate in the summer as they last for a decent time in dry conditions.

    Almost killed my Blue Pig. This skewer has very little clamping force compared to a decent one. New build, I'd checked the skewer was tight before we set off, and on a gentle climb my bike spat the back wheel out, twisting the area of plate around the brake side dropout. Luckily the frame is steel, but it took an hour from my LBS then an extra hour of tweaking from me to get the frame true with
