    Hey, look what showed up at my door!

    Mmmmm. These look super stiff and feel plenty light.

    Dusty of Hubsessed Cycle Works built them with Hadley Hubs and Sapim spokes.

    40mm 27.5" rims. I think Derby's site says the rims weigh around 425-435 grams each. So I don't suppose the complete wheel set is super light but I'll bet it's around 1700-1800 grams (Didn't weigh them)..... Which is pretty light for as burly as these look.

    Kelly is going to love them. I was just hanging on to them for a couple of days but couldn't stop oggling and fondling them the whole time I had them (My wife told Kelly she hates him now). I'm sure he'll let me take them for a spin once he gets them mounted on his Burner.

    I am loving them, although I only have a couple of mellow rides on them thus far. Hope to put them through some tests this weekend.

    I don't know if I should let Krob take my Burner for a spin, Mrs. Krob WILL shoot me.


    I did weigh the wheels as I was doing a comparison of old (ZTR Arch, Speed Tuned Hubs) vs. new (Derby, Hadley) but I did not record my findings. I do recall the weights were very similar. In regards to performance I have found two traits thus far; corning is awesome and landing jumps is solid.

    You are going to be stoked on them. Now if they were just attached to a carbon 6" frame....

    LOL. Nah, she's already signed off on the new bike.

    Maybe we can do some Squaw shuttles this afternoon later to break those wheels in proper. Give me a call.

    Cool. Glad to see I could help. Do you have a full build and ride report posted somewhere?

    I got a short ride on a pretty gnarly descent yesterday on KellyE's burner. Very impressive. The wheels felt mega stiff and tracked really well. The wider profile of the tires due to the 40mm rims really hooked up in the loose terrain.

    Was surprised (again) by how deep and plush the 140mm dw rear end feels on the new Burner. Wow. Really nice bike, Kelly.

    I've been saying that Turner needs to apply the Czar's carbon technology and design to the 650b 140-160mm platform. They make an excellent bike that looks 8 years old. Kinda like Nicolai.

    The Derby's look so beefy. They make every bike look like a DH bike but they've got the weight of XC wheels.

    They sure do change the profile of the tires.

    Agreed. I'd be really surprised if Dave wasn't working on something like this. I could be wrong but let's just say I'm looking forward to Interbike this year.

    I can tell you one thing though. If he didn't sell enough Czars to offset the cost of the carbon molds, I wouldn't expect a carbon Burner.

    What influenced your decision in going with the Hedley Hubs ? Were Hopes in the running ? Also Do you think LB rims are comparable to Derby ? I want to race in the Enduro Series up in BC. Would these rims be a solid choice, or would you go with aluminum, say the Syntace 35mx ? I want to stay in the wide territory.

    Probably a better question for Kelly but all I can say is I'm not willing to spend $2400 for Enve wheels and besides they aren't wide enough. Not sure I need 40mm but I am looking at Chinese carbon from Nox, LB, or Derby for my 5010 build.

    Kelly already had the Hadley's from a previous wheel set so that's why he went that way.
