Very well made wheelset, no surprises. Easy to install the cog.
There was a small nick on one rim - kinda sharp - I filed it down and no more problem. Otherwise quality is good.

Nice rims, definitely lighter than double-walled stock

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

    Nice rims for the price, came very true with good spoke tension out of the box. I would recommend replacing the stock rim tape with something better as I suspect this was the cause of my first flat.

      I commute to work, about 6 miles one way. These wheels add a new dimension to my cycling experience because they allow me the privilege of having a lighter weight bike without compromising strength or integrity. They are a boon over the standard supplied wheelset.

      Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

      I needed to replace a wheelset after an accident, and found these on sale for an amazing price. I am a bike messenger, so I put a lot of weight, and stress on wheels. These were out of true out of the box, and the hubs were too tight, but every wheelset out of the box should be adjusted. After adjusting, they roll pretty good, and have held true. I recommend these wheels. For the price I am very happy. Remove the cheesy stickers, and they look pretty cool too.

        Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

        decent quality wheels for an inexpensive price. look nice, stickers came off easy, almost perfectly true right out of the box. came in a nice big sturdy cardboard box with all the hardware bagged and stapled to the side.

        the bearings seemed a little tight for my taste but since they're cartridge I'm sure they'll work themselves out.

        all in all should make a great match with my fixed gear build!

        Cheaply Built

        By mcass777

        from Chicago

        About Me Commuter

        Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

        Bought these on the cheap. I read the reviews and knew what I was buying. I rode the wheel set for one winter in Chicago. I demand a lot from my gear in these conditions but hoped this set would get me a few years worth of use. The rear wheel felt like it was too tense right out of the box. I opened up the hub to rebuild it and the bearings were black! I do not think there were seals in these at all! Metal on metal! I will keep the front until it dies but will spend the money on a a better rear this season

          • Poor Construction
          • Wears Out Quickly

          Best Uses

            Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

            I commute to work everyday, about 250 miles per month. It took about 6 months for a spoke to break on the wheel. I kept riding and the next spoke broke after another couple months (probably weakened from the first). The rim got bent a little at this point and I can't use it anymore. The cheap wheel that came with my cheap bike lasted for about 2 years before I switched to this one. Not very good quality. I wouldn't get it again.

            Reasonable wheel set but useless rim tape

            Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

            I bought these wheels for my track bike, and they worked well at first. They are not too heavy and are strong and fast on the road even with the non-sealed bearings. My troubles started when I rode through a flooded trail, and water got into the wheels through the spoke tensioners. Within just miles of this, the water somehow caused the rim tape to stretch and shift inside the wheel causing unexpected and dangerous blowouts through the spoke holes. Before I learned this I could not understand why I was getting blowouts, and attempting to fix my inner tubes was wasted effort due to the large holes. I lost three inner tubes across both wheels on one ride alone and narrowly avoided getting hurt. Luckily I carry spare tubes. My arms are still sore after four day from all the trouble I had fixing my tires and pumping them up to pressure. I thought I would never get home getting blowout after blowout and patches that would not stick. Bottom line, while the wheels seem good to me, the rim tape is useless, hence the rating of 4 stars. Plan on replacing this tape with good quality cloth tape or equivalent.

            Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

            I was in the market for an inexpensive set of wheels for the single speed I commute with (22 miles a day). These come shipped with a fixed gear, you need to supply your own freewheel.

            My key need was durability, my key want was looks and with a couple of hundred miles on them so far, these are delivering on both fronts. I haven't yet decided whether to remove the decals.

            They are heavy, but they also feel very solid, which I think would be due to the deeper rims. Don't forget you need a longer valve stem (I use 60mm).

            Out of the box, the front wheel was very slightly out of true, but not enough to warrant a re-truing yet. Ultimately, these are a solid, great looking wheelset for a great price

            Very good wheelset. Already trued and ready for use. Just loosen up the bolts. Minor adjustments. Not as smooth at first but it will work itself out after a ride around the block. Only negative feedback that I have is the packaging itself. It could be better for a safe transit. Other than that this set is perfect for track and road use. Good for training too.
