    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.

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

          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!

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

            Can't go wrong with this wheelset. Not fancy, not flashy, and not the lightest on the market. But... they're simple, solid, and pretty dang strong. Rhyno lites are basically double-walled BMX rims bumped up to a 26" diameter, and the Shimano hubs are solid, too. Being a BMX rim, they're a little wider and not quite as deep. Plus side is that they offer a wider footprint and less pinch-flats, allowing you to also run a slightly wider tire. Only slight downside is that the shallow(er) rims generally require soapy water and tire tools to swap tires. No biggee, just know that ahead of time. As for the dude that was confused by the Presta drilling.....simply widen the gap with a hand-held electric drill. NO performance wheelsets out there come pre-drilled for Schraeder- it's a 5-minute fix. Overall, these wheels will handle almost all trail riding, except heavy jumping/park/dh. They excel in fast/aggressive singletrack settings where the stiff construction and wide footprint are put to use.

              Great value, especially when on sale AND shipped for free! Look great for my upgraded commuter and allowed for me to upgrade to disc brakes to see if its the direction i want to go on this bike or not. Shipped well packaged and received ready to go!

              I'm 215 lbs and have this same set of wheels on my 29er. When I saw the price for this set I decided to recondition my 26" mtb. I'm very pleased with them a big improvement over the previous wheelset on the Hardrock sport. I changed the bike to Disc. Brakes. Big improvement

                I bought these to replace my stock wheelset. I couldn't be happier with them. They are a little on the plain side, but I am much more concerned with durability. I am 225 and these wheels hold up well on everything I have done with them. I am not extreme, but I do put some extra wear on them than the average joe. I would recommed using steel reinforced tire levers to put tires on as the side walls are a little taller than most due to the ability to be used with rim brakes.

                  I use these for the challenging trails we have around Kimberley BC. The rims have a profile which makes it very easy to mount/dismount tires, almost without levers; they are wide enough for my Nevegall 2.35 tires. Mount your discs and cassette and go!
                  They look good too.

                  Bought these to bring life back to an old Mt. Shasta Pachanga mountain bike. These were inexpensive and the quality is good. The hubs are smooth, the spoke tension is good and the wheels are true. My only gripe is that changing tires is more difficult than changing the tires on my other 4 bikes. But for the price and ride, it's not a bad deal. If not for the difficulty I had putting tires on, i would give them 5 stars.
