    Reynolds Carbon AM 29er Wheels-Crosspost in Wheels and Tires

    I'm close to pulling the trigger on these wheels. Does anyone who owns a pair have any regrets?

    Have you noticed a big difference in performance between these wheels and alloy wheels?

    Lots of mixed feedback here...

    Love'm - Hate'm Reynolds 29er Carbon Wheelset

    I am also interested in these wheels...discussed them here and also on a German speaking forum - while the wheels were generally considered stiff and up to the task (unlike here where some people had problems with lose spokes), there where quite some cases of broken hubs...

    I have them and like them a lot; they're stiff, strong and very confidence inspiring. In a recent 100-miler I bounced a rock off of the valve stem and it loosened a bit, leaking air slowly. I figured out what was going in when I rode a 3-mile rock garden and felt the rim banging on rocks... at the end of the race the front tire was very squishy. When I got home I stripped the tires off and found no damage to the rims. I weigh 190 and I hit the rims pretty hard on those rocks.
