How are these wheels going? Did you re-use the extralite hubs? Spokes?

1132g is an awesome weight for a Crest wheelset. I'd love to hear more about that wheelset.


I re-used everything, but I replaced my prototype rear hub with the production model, and moved the two full ceramic bearings and two hybrid bearings over from the old hub. New HyperRear 28h then came in at 160.1g. Comes in at 170g stock.

Wheels are still doing fine, I've taken them on some hardcore rides on my 135mm/120mm race bike, and they are a heck of a lot faster than my 954g wheelset. And with the new rear hub they weigh 1117g. Maybe I need the front hub as well, to try and break 1100g limit. :-)

Faster how? More reliable I can understand, but how has adding 200 grams made them faster?

Out of interest why did you change away from the Innolites? I've always liked the idea of a pair if I won the lottery, but I've not heard good things about the durability if you were actually using them regularly!

The Innolites were too flexy for my needs, around 70% as stiff as Race 7000. They are also too narrow and too deep, compared to NoTubes-rims. With Crest rims, I get much larger tire volume, and the huge increase in stiffness lets me attack the terrain instead of merely negotiating it. The races I do have very little smooth surface, it's all roots, rocks, sharp turns, step-ups and drops. Stiffer is definitely faster for me in those conditions.

Mack hubs anyone? Tops my Tune hub by over 26g!

Due to an overweight ZTR Podium MMX rim the whole front wheel weights at 525.2 grams.

Hi Oli,

I know your post was a while back, and sorry if you've answered this question before, but could you you:

a) List components
b) give Total Cost
c) say about Reliability. How they've been

Also, have you changed them after building or built even lighter. Best I've done is about 1250g !!

Cheers
Starla
