2018 Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Carbon - First Look
I'm a mountain biker through & through. I race DH, I race enduro, I trail ride, XC, etc, I ride off road to work a decent distance a few times a week, but i'm all over this. Having ridden an E-Bike (Turbo levo) it was an absolute riot to ride. Flat out up, fast as hell down. Big, sh*t eating grin when I got back & absolutely knackered. I don't get the hate - it's all bikes to me. But then I ride a 29er too. I guess its cool to hate.

DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline One 29 Wheels - Review
Which would weigh a tonne more, and be less reliable...

DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline One 29 Wheels - Review
Much better hub? Better at what? Being heavy & unreliable? CK hubs are junk if you ride anywhere near mud.

DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline One 29 Wheels - Review
IME and that of people I ride with, the higher end DT stuff is about as bulletproof as it gets. I still have an old 240S that must be 8 years old now, it's been on countless bikes, re-rimmed endlessly & it's had one set of bearings in its life. I would always go for a DT hub out of choice. Light & reliable - easily adaptable. They just work.

e*thirteen TRSr SL Carbon Wheels - First Look
@Niko182: Not tried any DH specific rims - but then I don't have a DH bike & putting what would be heavy rims on a trail/AM bike would be pointless. Also, as an aside, i'm not actually a fan of the way carbon rims ride - I find them too stiff and harsh on varying terrain. As a racer, carbon wheels don't really work for me at all.

e*thirteen TRSr SL Carbon Wheels - First Look
@Niko182: No chance - i've run (and broken) most carbon rims on the market. Back on Alu rims & they have already lasted longer than my last carbon set.

Pointless. Can build a decent set of aluminium wheels that weigh the same & will last longer around a decent set of hubs, rather than E13 tat, for half the price. Rims will probably last longer too :)

We Went To Taiwan and Started a Bike Company...
@Racer951: Which brand? I used to work for a UK based multi-brand distributor & the real margin is not even CLOSE to 100%. In fact it it's not even that close to half that when talking high end brands.
