Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

They roll well, and seem sturdy, but they are very heavy. At the price I paid, that's to be expected.

Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

I wasn't 100% sure they were double-walled, but yes they are indeed double-walled. Another review mentioned shaking out the shavings, there were definitely shavings that needed to be shaken out so I was glad I read and did that. I drilled them out for Schrader valves, I had a round file though to file down any burrs (I wouldn't recommend drilling them out unless you can file them down) and I have not had any issues as a result of that. They came true and have stayed true, although I've only taken them out for a few rides, those rides were fairly rough trails -- these don't appear to have budged at all out of true. They seem to be a great value, good price and good quality.

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

    I could find no fault with this wheel set. I bought an other set a year ago and have no trouble with them. The spokes have stayed tight with no adjusting needed. The rim has also stayed true. I have no idea who makes the hubs since there is no brand name on them. They have been working with no problem. I would recommend them for city rims on a mountain bike hands down! The only concern I have is that the spokes are very different from normal spokes. I don't know where I would find replacements!

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

    I used these wheels to replace the originals (that wore out and cracked after years of winter riding) on my nashbar AL1 mtn bike. The Vuelta's seem great. They are much lighter than the originals. I haven't put any miles on them yet. However, I have Vuelta wheels on two road bikes, and I have absolutely no complaints about them. Vuelta wheels come out of the box true and round, the hubs are adjusted, and they look great.
    The hub I bought was intended for a 9 or 10 speed cassette. I use a 7 speed cassette so I also purchased a spacer from Nashbar, which made everything fit together perfectly.

        Just got these wheels, did a 20 mile ride and they ran great. I regreased and adjusted the cones on the front wheel but that was because of some of the comments I read suggested it.

          Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

          I bought these as a gift for a new rider fixing up a 90s hardtail. These wheels look outstanding and are aerodynamic with bladed spokes. They use standard tubes, presta or shrader, and fit 135mm rear axle spaced frames. At the price ($88 shipped), I wish I had bought 2 or 3 sets. The hubs were very basic models, with rudimentary seals, but the cones and locknuts are easy to adjust and repack. The wheels came with cheesy plastic rim tape that I promptly replaced with real rim tape. Good buy overall, I would buy them again for the great looks.

          Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

          Great wheel for the price. Solid double walled. Came trued, lubed and ready for mounting. I didn't read they were drilled for presta valves but, was easy to drill for schrader. If this is your plan be sure to have some long valve schrader tubes because the wheels have a deep V where on the inside of the wheel. The basic 33mm valve worked but, only with some coaxing.

              These are great wheels for a low price, BUT I had to lube and adjust the bearings before using them. They were hard to adjust because the seal cups cause a lot of drag, so the wheel does not spin too freely when they are properly adjusted.
