- Sorry more DH questions Super Star DH wheels peoples experience
Ordinarily I am a superstar evangelist, I’ve had three sets of superstar wheels with no bother. But my mate last weekend had flows on superstar hubs 2nd ride, and the rear wheel went out of true with the loosest spokes I have ever ever seen. I am not sure how or why it happened, but i suspect it might be lack of lubrication on the spoke/nipple thread. I’ve been building wheels for 25 years and I’ve only ever seen spokes off when I forgot to lube the nipples during the build.
So I would still be happy to buy them, but run round each nipple with a drop of three in one, wipe clean, and check for tightness often until you are sure it is all good..
In my experience the hubs are utterly bomb proof.Posted 5 years agoKarl33toMember
Been running the AMX’s for the past 12 months of DH / Alps / Lakes and they have held up OK-ish, the front I haven’t had a problem with, but the rear has needed the occasional bit of re-tensioning.
No probs at all with the hubs though. I’d imagine they’d be great with some 729’s on them. Infact I was only considering upgrading to some last night myself.Posted 5 years agoDougMember
Go for one of the clearance tech 2 DH wheelsets with their own rims. The hubs are almost worth the £120 asking price alone. Got three sets of switch wheelsets and love being able to run swap two of them between a QR hardtail and a 15mm/142mm full suss in a couple of mins. (The other set is 150mm rear end).
Looking at getting a set made up with Open Pro CD’sPosted 5 years ago
