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

    I'll first confess that I have not done much mountain biking in a few years but I do a fair amount of road cycling. Thus, after my mountain front bike wheels was damaged after the bike was hit by a car ( I was not on it...long story) I decided to spring for a new set of wheels. And boy am I glad I did. Took them out for the first time on some singletrack that is described as "intermediate" where I live (western MI). The trail was right about what I could handle. It was fairly technical with a lot of ups and downs. These wheels handled it all really well. And they are fast...wanted to go and go. Smooth too. For a rec mtn. rider these are a gerat set of wheels at a great price. I really am happy with them

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

    This was a cheap replacement to resurrect an old mountain bike to a city bike. You'll need to loosen the cones as they come way too tight and bind. You'll have to decide for yourself the balance between binding and play on these. I loosened them and added some grease. I had an issue with the narrow rim strip giving me flats on the rear tire. I replaced it with some velo plugs and haven't had an issue since. I've got around 200 miles on them and they need to be trued but that's to be expected of new wheels. They are a little wider and heavier than the mavics I replaced but hey for under $100 you can't go wrong.

    True out of box, but had to adjust wheel bearing hubs on both wheels. I put slick tires on for commuting bike. Only have a couple of hundred miles on so far, but of the money, you can't go wrong.

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

        I bought this wheel set about a year ago! I was concerned that the hubs had no name brand on them. I also wondered about the spokes because they looked liked none that could be replaced. I have roaded on these to work and back for a year. No problems what so ever! The spokes have stayed tight with no adjustment needed what so ever. The wheel has also stayed true with no adjustment needed! These are great and I would not hesitate to buy another set. They are a great value! I use a u-bolt lock through the back wheel and it has not effected the spokes at all.

              Saving a 1986 Cannondale aluminum mountain frame, looking for used 26 inch wheels, then found these.
              I paired them with a set of Geax Roadster City Tires Item # YT-GROAD and they look great! It also eliminated the fractional vs decimal sizing. Not may miles on yet, but love em.

                  Got these for my wife for beginning off-road use. They came out of the box true and tensioned (and with rim strip too). Just had to slap on the tires and she's off. They look great too. For the price you can't beat them.

                    For the price these are definitely the best wheels I have found! As others have mentioned, the bearings are adjusted a bit tight from the factory but simple to adjust with cone wrenches. An unexpected bonus is tires are super easy to change without tools due to the design of the rims.

                      This is my second set of Nashbar/Vuelta Zerolites. I enjoyed the first pair for several thousand miles of riding—sometimes riding very hard—with only minor truing until the freehub suffered compete mechanical failure. Considering the price of this wheelset, the mechanic at my LBS suggested that I replace the wheel over servicing the freehub. Another reviewer mentioned upgrading the rim tape and I believe that to be good idea; I'm using 22mm Velox cloth tape and it mates nicely with concavity of the rim. The wheels arrived true and with strong spoke tension. These 'zerolites' are heavy for a 24 spoke count wheel – but they seem sturdy. I've done 500+ miles on the current set and am expecting to have them shop-trued in another 500. Those miles have included daily commuting, greenbelt rides, climbing over Appalachian mountains, gravel riding and curb jumping. I have 2.3" K-Rad tires mounted at ~70 psi and the pairing has been sweet.
