    New Reynolds Mtn 29r Xc Alloy

    Hi everyone,

    has anyone tried or have opinion on this new wheelset for 2014 from Reynolds. The rims seems reasonably wide and with a weight of 1600 for the set and a msrp of 725 USD, it's seems like a pretty good alternative to any wheelset from Stans ? Are the Reynolds hubs any good ?

    Any comments is welcomed !

    Cheers !

    I don't like the look of them, The Rims are only 20 inside, so narrow by todays standards.

    There hubs are not great.

    I would have a look at the Industry Nine Trail wheels.

    +1 on the Industry Nine Wheel set here is a new set for $874.00 shipped well worth the extra money IMHO

    I certainly HOPE Reynolds sorted out their hub issues...
