    Great replacement wheels to keep that 26" bike on the trail. They are heavy, but also heavy duty. The last set lasted ten years. Got these on sale for less than $90 shipped. Don't know how you can beat that.

      Comments about Sun-Ringle Rhyno Lite / Shimano Deore 525 Mountain Bike Wheelset:

      I love these wheels, seriously. I put them on my all-rounder mountain bike that serves as my commuter, winter bike, off-road, etc. They are seriously cheaply priced, but IMO, are high quality. The rim is wide, the hubs spin smooth, and the wheel feels strong. I am not a weight-weenie, so I am not worried about the weight (or even know what the weight is), but it honestly doesn't feel that heavy. It is both rim and disc brake compatible. Great wheelset.

      Comments about Sun-Ringle Rhyno Lite / Shimano Deore 525 Mountain Bike Wheelset:

      I have yet to put these on the dirt, but they appear to be a very nice wheel set. Very strong rims, smooth bearings in the hubs. The only issue I had was installing my tires. I have NEVER had such a hard time installing tires. It's almost like I was trying to put 26" tires on a 27.5" rim. I almost broke both of my tire levers. Other than that, bolting up my disc brakes was a breeze. I look forward to hitting the trail in the near future. Only 4 stars because I have not ridden on them yet. I expect they will perform.

            Wheels arrived true. Hubs and freewheel are smooth. Just what I needed to replace the original wheels on my comfort bike. 20% off deal paid for the oversize shipping charge. No issues at all.

            Comments about Sun-Ringle Rhyno Lite / Shimano Deore 525 Mountain Bike Wheelset:

            Reliable rim. DT stainless spokes are consistent and reliable. Loctite type spoke thread compound is good until you need to true the wheel (which breaks the compound loose) or about two years. The rear wheel dish was off a little in the frame and when checked with a dishing tool. Not enough to bother your typical cyclist or bicycle mechanic. But enough cause a problem if running a 2.3" tire in the frame used. Gave me a chance to add and check tension on the wheel. Not bad for J&B importers. Wheel is cheaper than trying to buy the parts yourself. Good deal if you want to re-lace with colored alloy nipples and use linseed oil or a beeswax compound.

            Comments about Sun-Ringle Rhyno Lite / Shimano Deore 525 Mountain Bike Wheelset:

            These rims have a tall brake surface on the rims for rim brakes,(Disc or Rim Brakes)this leads to a harder tire install. I have to use two tire levers together as one will brake. The good thing about that is, you will never have a tire come off the rim with a flat. These are rock solid rims. The Shimano 525A hubs are new. They use new seals, and the outer "Rubber Dust cover" is gone. They turn smooth like Shimano XT"s.

              These wheels will no doubt be great (I have not ridden them yet), as has been said in so many reviews. They arrived in perfect condition, except they were drilled for Schrader tubes (not mentioned anywhere in the description). Nashbar customer service, usually great, has not responded to my repeated attempts to contact them about this (I even sent pictures). Just make sure you ask about what type of valves your wheels are drilled for.

                  Can not do better for this price. I'm building up an off-road touring bike and these wheels fit the bill.

                  When they arrived, I put them in the truing stand and got out my tensiometer and was happy to find them true and even-tensioned. Only surprise was that the rims are drilled for schrader (car-tire-type) valves! Not really a problem as I have a pair of rubber adaptor grommets handy, and I suppose if I'm touring it will be nice to have the option of using either type of tube, but I think Nashbar ought to give you a choice of which drilling you get. Bearings feel smooth and tires mounted easily enough. You'll want the wide 22mm rim tape for these. Still can't believe I got such nice wheels for this price!
