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.

Great set of wheels for commuting

Pros

  • Durable
  • Inexpensive
  • Look great

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Commuting/City

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

Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

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.

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

    Solid wheels for a great price. Replaced the junk wheels that came with my SS/Fixie. If you want to ride SS, you need to buy a freewheel. It only comes with the fixie side. True out of the box, solid, and smooth rolling. I'm 200+ lbs, so they are strong. Have about 1000 miles on them so far and still running great.

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

    They're affordable, they ride well, and they're lightweight. I wish they would have come without the stickers on them, as I devoted a solid 30 minutes to peeling them off. Protip: use steady pressure and lift perpendicular to the wheel to minimize the amount of sticky residue left behind. Also they're presta stems, which apparently I should have just known... but I'm new to this. So I wish they would post that in the specifications.

    Decent Wheels, but...

    • Poor Hub Assembly

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

    They seem like great wheels for the price. Out of the box, the bearing tension on both wheels was too tight and the hardware was loose in the box. I haven't put them in the truing stand yet, but upon initial inspection, they seem true and round. I adjusted the bearing tension and now they turn pretty well!

      Packaging was a little skimpy/funky but the rims are fine. Good tension, and very true. I would buy these again.

            Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

            These wheels are awesome. They are lightweight but super strong given the medium V. The brake sidewalls have a groove machined in the middle so your brakes will grip really good. They are not sealed bearings, but if you are not afraid of repacking your bearings, this can be a good thing since you can put your favorite grease in there and they will always work perfectly. The wheels are absolutely true when received. The only downside to these wheels was the rather lengthy amount of time if took to remove all the stickers on both sides of each wheel. I wish they would offer these wheels in a no-sticker version.
