Which Wheel set…Help
i run your current set up on one bike and its great if i were looking to upgrade id stick with pro two hubs and get flow rims. My other wheelset is dt ex1750 which is very nice but i wouldnt buy again with the price of hope hoops. When i need new rims on either wheelset i will be keeping the hubs and putting flows or 321 on. I like that the hubs can be used with adaptors on lots of different options so are an investment so to speak . 321 also ghetto tubeless easy . Oh and stay clear of easton havocs 🙂Posted 8 years ago
Needs some opinions guys.
I'm currently running Hope 2's with 321's and I'm looking to upgrade but as with sooooo much choice not sure what to go for.
Original plan was Mavic SX's, but the reviews aren't that favourable ref after sales supports etc.
So the next choice was Chris Kings, and after fondling some in LBS it's the way to go but it's what rim.
819's, Flows etc
I was looking to go tubeless, but not sure that the 819's is way to go for my weight and riding.
I'm 14.5stone, Nomad, Vans 36, if i had to describe my riding style clumsy light freeride…av it
What do you think guys……..Posted 8 years ago
Now I'm back to the Mavic's.
Just been on the Stans site and Hope 2'+ Flow's is 1786g.
Mavic's 1755g, and a rough calc of CK's with Flow's is 1869g.
All a bit geeky, but no weight savings gona make me ride faster up or down.
Anyone else got the new Mavic SX's, what style of riding are you doing, would you recomned them etc.
The CK's do look the bollocks though….Posted 8 years agoPJ266Member
I would say a lack of tire pressue and pie boy riding style leads to that.
I would say thats what happens when you dont ride like a fanny 😉
Ive got 819's, love em. Im pretty skinny but like to blat through rocky trails (the number of dents in the rear wheel show that) and have ridden dirt jumps, 4x tracks, downhill tracks all without worry 😀 I highly recommend them.Posted 8 years agoDusty LilacMember
I use my SXs for general thrashing about on, DH singletrack, local jump spot, trail centres (including the Kona Mash-Up) – that kind of thing. Light enough to feel really flickable/pedalable on trails, strong enough to take all the jumps/rockgardens/roots I'm brave enough to try.Posted 8 years ago
So to all the SX owners.
Have you guys had any issues with after sales, getting spokes replaced, hub issues, bearings etc
The only thing holding me back really is the after sales. There are some mixed reviews on the web, '3 weeks for parts', 'unable to get hold of spokes'.
Cheers guysPosted 8 years ago
