    Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite DR Disc Road Wheelset:

    I love my new wheelset and Nashbar! First, Nashbars prices and customer service are spectacular. Second, this Vuelta wheelset is ALOT of wheel for the money, especially when there's a sale! I've ridden this wheelset for about 50 miles so far, i'm a fairly heavy guy at 230lbs and these wheels are still rolling straight so far. I'll definitely buy these wheels again!

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite DR Disc Road Wheelset:

      Great road disc wheels. If you've got a road bike with discs, you've probably discovered that wheel selection is still fairly limited. These are hands-down the best deal on the market.

      I have about 1,200 miles on these wheels. Much of that is the poor pavement in and around San Francisco, CA. They have handled bumps and shocks just fine, staying just as true as they were the out of the box. They are much lighter than the stock wheels that came with my bike, which were about 2,100 grams. These clocked in at about 8% above the claimed weight. Given the attractive price point, I feel that coming in with 10% of the listed spec is completely fair and still a good deal.

      Moreover, the semi-aero shape and bladed spokes gives you a significant boost on the flats. I was running stock, non-aero wheels with Continental Gatorskins, which have poor rolling resistance. I switched to these wheels and Vittoria Rubion Pros (a mid-priced tire with pretty good rolling resistance) and my average speeds immediately went from around 15 mph on most rides with a good mix of climbing to about 16.5 mph.

      Some of that is probably explained by lower rolling resistance in the tires, but the wheels help a ton. They are also noticeably stiffer than the stock wheels I had when I stand up out of the saddle and climb, or when I make a sprint.

      Long story short, if you have a road disc bike, your options are limited. You'll have to pay more than 2x the cost of these wheels to do any better for everyday training wheels. Buy 'em.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite DR Disc Road Wheelset:

        You can buy lighter wheels, but not at this price point. You can buy cheaper wheels but not of this quality. I have purchased 4 different sets of Vuelta wheels. A 26" MTB disc ,29er disc, CX disc and a 700c road. Each set was true out of the box.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite DR Disc Road Wheelset:

        I got these to replace a set of Maddux Explorer wheels I was using as the cassette body was on it's way out.

        I got these and they looked pretty good out of the box. The weight was close enough to advertised weight. The hubs were smooth and spin well. I always put new wheels on my truing stand to check for true and check tension too. The wheels were true, but like every prebuilt wheel I have bought the tension was lower than optimal. I tried to tension the wheels, but I could not turn the nipples. That is how I know they used thread lock on the nipples. Thread lock on the nipples is usually a sign of a poor build. I hope I am wrong about this on these wheels.

        So far I have about 500 miles on the wheels I am happy with them. The freewheel mechanism is a bit louder than most, but that is not too bad. I might open up the cassette to add some grease which would make them a bit quieter, but that is not that important to me. How they hold up as a year round commuter is more important to me.
