Comments about Vuelta Nine LE 29" Mountain Wheelset:

Excellent performance from a wheel at a very low price point. I was able to drop 3 full lbs.(pounds) from my MTB, just by using this wheelset. I combined the wheels with 2 Continental X-king Protection Tires and what a difference!

I will say, converting the wheelset into a tubeless setup was hard. Probably due to the tire and not the wheels themselves.

I used Stan's rim tape, valves and sealant.

Overall, I could not be more impressed with this wheelset. Strong,light and they roll excellent. Great upgrade from a "stock" wheel.

    Comments about Vuelta Nine LE 29" Mountain Wheelset:

    I haven't ridden a pair of wheels I couldn't destroy within a two or three months. These are great for the money! I have them on my SSCX training bike and have found them to be extremely durable for gravel, grass, and even the occasional bunny hop. So far, the only drawback I've observed is the silly graphics on the rim. These are a super deal.

      Comments about Vuelta Nine LE 29" Mountain Wheelset:

      I bought these for use on a Karate Monkey in a "monster cross" configuration. I mounted some Big Apple 2.35 tires on them and they work really nice. I like that they were the simple 9mm-front/10mm rear quick release because that is what the frameset (specifically the front fork) called for. I have a set of Vuelta Lite wheels for my Road bike that I also got from Nashbar and they are also great! Given the awesome price, I was really excited to have this set for my 29er.

      great replacement for my crosstrail

        Comments about Vuelta Nine LE 29" Mountain Wheelset:

        So with my heavy crosstrail, heavy kid in a heavy bike seat, tire pressure too high on stock tire and rim, went off true. I tried to true and broke some spokes. This set was a cheaper and what appears to be higher quality than the bike shop was offering for a rear only replacement. so I went for it. super easy to change over the parts. the bike actually handles better and feels smoother. they are a little lighter than the stock wheels. I don't care for the graphics, but they aren't so bad i care. I would prefer plain, but for cheap I am happy! put my stock specialized 700c tires on it and new tubes with presta valves and am back on it again. The specs say they are more durable, i think they will be. I bought a return set, couldn't believe the price.
