Bought this as a training wheel and it's pretty impressive for the cost. It was true out of the box, although the spokes pinged like mad for the first 100 metres when I first used it. As previous reviewer says, rim tape is narrow and spoke holes are big. The rim tape moved to one side on mine leading to a puncture. Haven't weighed it but not bothered at the price. It's stiff, rolls well and has a ridiculously loud hub which I like even if my mates don't. Can't fault it for the price
Actual weight in my case was Rear : 911 gram Front : 775 gram (Without Q/R) Rim bed holes are very big and rim tape that came with the set was rather narrow and was sliding sideways, I had to re-tape using electrical tape to make sure I do not get any punctures from spoke holes. Rolling is good, and chosen hub has a very high pitched sound. I have uploaded the sound on Youtube. Wheel was true out of box and spoke tension was acceptable. 3 stars for being quite heavier than advertised and for poor rim tape. I sometimes have to ride on pavements as some cycling roads are shared by both pedestrians and cyclists here in Japan, and loud hub sound helps to get me noticed by pedestrians!!
Good wheels at a good price, just what I need for my tow path commute. Front needed a slight tweak to be true but otherwise really happy. The hub is pretty loud in a good way.
These are the best I could find at this price point. Rims are up to date with a little more internal width. Hubs seem solid and the rear hub has a nice sound to it. Would buy again.
Same as my review on CX28 disc front rim bed drilling a bit oversize. The chosen free hub was a bit of a pain to get a new cassette over. I expect a hard time getting it off. Can't complain too much from price perspective. The CX28 is a very nice rim. Pity about hole size in the rim bed. After some rough riding on bike paths the wheel is still running true. Wheel weight near enough as advertised within 5g.
The chosen brand hub has extremely noisy pawls while coasting. It arrived true but the spokes were not tight enough, it pinged a lot until I spent time tightening and retrueing. Otherwise I love the ride on this wheel once tuned up. It is solid with more spokes than my old animal r500 and 200g lighter.
Bought these wheels for my girlfriend. They're nice & lite, solidly made & I can see them lasting a good few seasons. Only problem is trying to get them of her to have a go myself.
