    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

    I have these wheels on my fixed gear road bike and they held up great for ~8k miles. The logo decals peel off easily with a hair drier if you want solid color. Be mindful, color of the wheel (Red, White, or black) is also a decal so don't peel that off. I repacked the bearings at 5k miles and they were a bit worn. I would suggest servicing the bearings at every rear tire change. These wheels stayed true and rode well for 8k miles.

    The rear was destroyed when the bike fell off a roof rack, so this is a replacement. Even after being bent I was able to true it and ride another ~400 miles before replacing them. If I damage these I will buy the same as a replacement as they work well for me.

    Great Wheel, Poor Packaging

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

    I love these wheels, I just wish that they were packaged a little nicer. When I got the wheels, there were 2 big holes in the box from the axles poking out. They should probably cover the ends of the axles and put some protective padding in the box. I'm glad the threads on the axle were fine. That's my only complaint.

    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite Track Wheelset:

    This is now the second set of ZeroLite Track wheels that I have ordered. The first set finally wore out, after 7000 miles. These wheels seem to be identical to the first set that I used. They were true out of the box and have been great so far! I wrote a review on the first set, and I am still happy. I commute daily in Portland Oregon and beat the snot out of these wheels. Glad they haven't changed, plus the cost is unbeatable for a commuter wheel. If you commute on and SS or Fixie these will work out great.

    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.

      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.

          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

          Didn't take long to break.

            • 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.
