Hi,

Well, they're not cartridge bearing hubs but cup and cone ones (except for the freewheel) but I agree with the policy to not use the grease ports for servicing purposes.

Ciao, ;)

I have been looking at campagnolo neutron for a while and I need a new set of training wheels, I want some wheels that a tough enough for the winter and I want them to be fairly light, responsive and stiff and i have heard so much good stuff about the neutron but can they last through winters?


By fairly light I mean less than 1700 gr. so khamsin is not an option, sorry for not mentioning that! Neutrons has been ordered now

Had a set of Nucleons (Version before Neutrons) & they only packed up last winter after nearly 9 yrs use in all conditions & being used for all sorts of events inc cx, the hubs, which were never serviced in that time were getting rough and on servicing them (smooth as new after service) i noticed the rim was worn to failure point(split appearing in rim where lip is). Campagnolo hit the pinnicle of alloy clincher wheel design with these & the steel spoked version of the Eurus. Only annoyance is replacement rims are like chickens teeth.

That´s the durability i´m looking for!

I have a set of wheels with Ringlé hubs and they lasted about 5 winters now maybe 6 but now the rim is starting to fail and the bearings need a service for the first time...looking forward to try the new wheels...still waiting.

A mate is selling a set of Campag Neutron Ultra clincher wheels at a decent price. I don't really need any more wheels but then I thought this set, shod with a pair of Vittoria Pave tyres, might do nicely for my trip to the Tour of Flanders sportive in April. Thoughts? Thanks.

I've got 2 sets.

the first I bought new about 3 years ago.

I liked them so much I picked up a used set very cheap. They turned out to have been really used hard. I ended up replacing the bearings, which are standard Campy internals, doing some minor truing, and they have been perfect ever since.

i'm 190# and ride on mostly poor MUTs and roads.

The Neutrons have been great. Never a problem, very comfortable and stay true. Did I mention they are pretty light too?

They are bomb proof

Have a set since 2007, never touched them, never serviced them.

They are great wheels, have a search and you really won't find many bad words about them. Probably not worth their full retail value but if you can get a deal on a pair or a decent second hand pair then you can't really go wrong with them.

If anyone knows of a better* wheel for less money then I'm all ears.....

* In every respect that is.

Ciao, ;)

Quoting above not required

I hadn't read the whole thread before because it was so old.

My contribution to the "winter wheels" question is that I have ridden these through some of the worst salty wet conditions you can imagine. Campy's seals are impressive. I took apart a hub after a couple of nasty winters thinking I should and it was totally clean inside.

My rear hub failed on me, I think salty water came inside as there was no rubber seal on the freehub towards the hub, the new hub has one though. If I would buy similar wheels today I would buy zondas, they are cheaper and about 100 gr lighter allthough I don't think they look as good as neutrons.

Surely all Neutron came with a seal between hub and freewheel. It's easily fixed as any part can be replaced.
Zonda lighter than Neutron?
I didn't know that but it's a totally different wheel, isn't it. I always found these Neutrons so easy going, comfy and not fatigue-inducing.

Ciao, ;)

Hi,

You're talking about the seal that's actually on the free hub itself, right? If that's the case then, no it's not listed as a spare AFAIK.
I'm sure a friendly shop could pry one off a toasted freehub. They all keep some shot ones aside for spares, don't they? :P
Actually I thought he meant the seal on the hub, freewheel side.

Worst case, old OS axle and round hole FH: replacement kit ~ 110 Euro over here on the continent.

Ciao, ;)
