    Bombshell Switchit Wheels?

    Are these wheels any good?

    Also switchit hubs are they any good?

    Are they heavy?

    Thanks in advance.
    Opportunity awaits those that are worthy....

    Can't comment on those particular wheels but my Bombshell Fat Daddys are prone to flat spotting.

    Whats the price range for those wheels, I'm looking for a replacement set as well. I got a great deal on a set of Alex Rims with a front 20mm thru axle, but they werent perfect when I got them, and now with me using them to learn on and doing lots of urban there way out of true. I was thinking about AZONIC Outlaws, do you know if the bombshells are any better.

    i'll second the bombshell fatdaddy wheelset. great customer service too.

    keen, they probably got flatspotted because they weren't maintained. uneven spoke tension is what causes flatspots, regardless of manufacturer.

    I am not sure I would call the problem flat spotting - the rim sidewalls bulged in a few spots - no hops. I purchased another used rim as a back-up and it had the same sidewall buldges in a couple of spots. I can see flat spotting coming from poor spoke tension but bulging seems like weak sidewalls.
