    Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

    Seeing the deliveryman carry the box to my door I knew it was the rims and braced myself for a heavy box and was amazed, I thought maybe only one rim was inside. Not getting an idea of perspective when reading weight specs I just assumed a low price meant a heavy wheelset, but they certainly are very light to me. I never had this model though I had a more expensive pair of vueltas in the past and one problem I had was the cassette got really stuck on the hub, though it did not affect performance, it was tuff to remove and these hubs look like the ones I had on my other vueltas maybe its a drawback to being light there is an issue with durability (I haven't used these new vueltas yet) but again it did not seem to affect the ride. If vueltas keep putting wheelsets at this price I might not even do serious servicing anymore, I can just toss them when I feel they have had it and just by a new pair. Living in the city I never go offroad this wheelset is certainly a great deal

            Pros - Inexpensive, comes with rim strips, modern wider bed for fat tires, stickers come off easily if so desired, wear indicator indentation that goes around the entire rim on the braking surface that some other reviewer mistook as a very narrow braking surface - the braking surface is the correct size, just ignore the wear indicator.
            Cons - wish it came with more spokes in an old school style 3 or 4 cross but at this price, can't be too picky.

              Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

              I previously replaced the wheels on our two TREK 820's with these wheels. They are used mainly for road and bike path use now, no serious off road riding but I'm about 235 Lbs. and they have held up to me just fine. This 3rd set will be used on a GT Tequesta MTB that I'm doing a drop bar conversion on. I needed 26" wheels for it that were more road oriented and these are perfect. Best wheels I've bought in this price range and better than some I've paid a lot more for.

                  Comments about Vuelta Zerolite 26" Mountain Wheelset - Limited Edition:

                  I mounted a set of 26X1.5 slicks on these wheels to convert my rigid 1997 Gary Fisher mountain bike into a neighborhood cruiser. My twin daughters are riding now, and tooling around the hood in aggressive knobby tires made little sense. So I used these to set up a new set of wheels. They're good looking wheels. The hubs appear to be well-sealed albeit a bit nondescript. They spin smoothly. They're probably not bombproof if you're planning on doing some serious mountain biking, but they're more than sturdy enough for trail riding. The aero spokes seem a little silly for my set up, but it's a nice touch. I did flat after mounting them due to some rough finishing around the valve hole on one of the wheels. I need to file it down, but my second tube hasn't popped yet. It could have been back luck with a tube, but it was definitely at the valve stem. Set up was easy. They already have the rim strip installed. They were true out of the box and were well-packed. At the price I paid, you can't go wrong for these wheels. I set them up in a 3x7 drive train, and with a 2mm spacer, the rear derailleur needed no adjustment from my knobby wheel set up. Swap the wheels out and go!
