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

          Pros - Inexpensive, comes with rim strips, modern wider bed for fat tires, stickers come off easily if so desired, wear indicator indentation that goes around the entire rim on the braking surface that some other reviewer mistook as a very narrow braking surface - the braking surface is the correct size, just ignore the wear indicator.
          Cons - wish it came with more spokes in an old school style 3 or 4 cross but at this price, can't be too picky.

            I previously replaced the wheels on our two TREK 820's with these wheels. They are used mainly for road and bike path use now, no serious off road riding but I'm about 235 Lbs. and they have held up to me just fine. This 3rd set will be used on a GT Tequesta MTB that I'm doing a drop bar conversion on. I needed 26" wheels for it that were more road oriented and these are perfect. Best wheels I've bought in this price range and better than some I've paid a lot more for.

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

                I mounted a set of 26X1.5 slicks on these wheels to convert my rigid 1997 Gary Fisher mountain bike into a neighborhood cruiser. My twin daughters are riding now, and tooling around the hood in aggressive knobby tires made little sense. So I used these to set up a new set of wheels. They're good looking wheels. The hubs appear to be well-sealed albeit a bit nondescript. They spin smoothly. They're probably not bombproof if you're planning on doing some serious mountain biking, but they're more than sturdy enough for trail riding. The aero spokes seem a little silly for my set up, but it's a nice touch. I did flat after mounting them due to some rough finishing around the valve hole on one of the wheels. I need to file it down, but my second tube hasn't popped yet. It could have been back luck with a tube, but it was definitely at the valve stem. Set up was easy. They already have the rim strip installed. They were true out of the box and were well-packed. At the price I paid, you can't go wrong for these wheels. I set them up in a 3x7 drive train, and with a 2mm spacer, the rear derailleur needed no adjustment from my knobby wheel set up. Swap the wheels out and go!

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

                  I bought these during a really good sale and they're definitely worth it. They were straight right out of the box (one needed a SLIGHT tweak on the truing stand). They come with a rim strip which is a nice touch. The skewers are nice looking too. They look great with the stickers, but I like a more toned down look on my bike, so the blow dryer and a few minutes of time and they're gone. Tires mounted easily. The only gripe I have is the braking surface is rather narrow. I am using KS Mountain pads and they just barely, and I mean BARELY fit the braking surface. It took a few tries to get them set up correctly. (HINT: align the pads as high & close to the tire as possible). To avoid this hassle use some thinline pads to save some headache. My only other issue with regards to these is the dual compound pads squeal like a stuck pig on these rims. I'll be trying a harder compound to hopefully solve this. With only 24 spokes I hope they hold up to daily commuting. Only time will tell. They feel very solid while riding and roll great with the precision bearings. I would definitely buy them again if I needed wheels for some of my other bikes.
