XC race wheelset and tires

$300 USD
These wheels come with full backing/ money-back guarantee from Hurricane Cycles. Find me @HurricaneCyclesBikeShop on Facebook! These wheels are nearly brand new. I built them up just a couple months ago and raced them once. They are both setup tubeless already. I have not weighed these but I know they are some of the lightest available in this class. Here is the details: Front- WTB KOM i25 27.5 Shimano XT hub QR9x100 DT competition Spokes/brass nipples Maxxis RaceTT Exo TR Rear- Stans Crest 27.5 Bontrager racelite QR9x135 DT Competition Spokes/brass nipples This hub is made by DT Swiss so It's basically a rebranded 350. Maxxis RaceTT Exo TR

Bontrager Line Pro 30 Carbon Wheels - Review
I've got a bontrager racelite wheelset from around 2008 and they are labeled "Bontrager by DT Swiss" and a quick comparison looks like they are just rebranded 350s. Is it safe to assume DT is still making hubs for Bonti?

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
@WAKIdesigns: I wish I had such a luxury. Most of the trails in my part of East Tennessee are barely rough at best, save for the DH runs which are proper steep and rocky. The main takeaway here is that contrary to the article, there are definitely still places a rigid can outrun anything else!

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
@WAKIdesigns: I raced DH for many years. Now due to injuries I spend nearly all my time on XC and road bikes. I happened to have come across a cheap rigid XC bike that weighs nothing and has wide range 1x gears. I pass people on the downs with it all the time during any XC adventure! It has become one of my favorite bikes even tho it's not entirely practical in most cases.

TRP's Less Expensive Four-Piston Brake - Interbike 2017
@inventor: most bike shops should have those laying around in a spare small parts bin of some sort. Would probably give one to you. However you don't need the screw. Just about about anything will work. A standard cotter pin will work. Or if you have any women in your life barrow a Bobby pin

Carbon Fiber Valve Stems, An Improved Dropper, and 6D's Updated Helmets - Interbike 2017
@Henk-K: I remember in an article not too long ago here on PB that Blenki was using weights on the opposite side of this valve stem to counteract the hop. said it made the wheel a bit more quiet at high speeds.

Mashup: Nico Vink and Friends' Season of Shred in Bikepark Châtel - Video
@gonzoracing: not sure what your on about. I think we are saying the same thing just in a different way. My only point was that if you force a pile of soil into a shape that exceeds that natural angle of repose stuff won't grow. When doing back slope of a bench cut or the back fill of a berm (as in this case) if you keep that angle inside of repose (as it appears they did) stuff will grow back over time "completing" the look of the trail. We are saying the same thing. Don't get ye panties in a bunch.

TRP's Less Expensive Four-Piston Brake - Interbike 2017
@inventor: not very easily. As has already been said. The new shimanos are designed to be bled 1 way so if you force fluid back thru the lever it will just squirt out the sides of the reservoir. ive heard of people using a thinner bleed block to accomplish this but with varying results.
