- Last bit of SS advice…maybe (again, warning, contains really basic stuff)
I’ve always used Surly hubs and White Industries freewheels, but as much as I love them, I think I would go with a set of Hope Pro 2 SS hubs (or similar) as it makes sprocket changing easier and means that you don’t have to replace bearings and service your freewheel every six months. Or just pick up a standard set of wheels and go with a colourful velo solo spacing kit and a surly sprocket.Posted 5 years agotazzymtbMember
avoid shitmano xt 29er wheel sets, i’ve seen a couple of rears eat themselves if glorious and terminal ways. (maybe why they are appearing now and then as Sale options on various websites)
WI freewheels are ace mine has been going for years with only one bearing change, cost about a tenner. I went through loads of cheap ones every few months with cannock and peak district gritty stuff.
easiest option, find some nice second hand ones for a good price. No point going mad on stuff and then discovering you hate 29er singlespeeds. 😀Posted 5 years ago
