    Sun Ringle Black Flag Expert 29" Wheelset

    Is this a decent wheelset for xc riding? I ordered a set of Stans Arches and they ended up being back ordered, now I found these Sun Ringles for $331 @ Modern Bike, they are 75 grams heavier than the Arches. Anyone have these wheels, know the real weight? I will be running tubeless with Stans sealant with Captain Control 2bliss tires on an EMD 9, my build has took a serious set back as all I am needing is a wheelset.

    I received a rear Stans Arch today from Performance bike and was like hmmm... where the heck is the front wheel, apparently they forgot to mention they were out of stock so they just sent the rear, now i am returning for a refund and have a ready to go bike sitting in my garage with no wheels- bummer!

    I got the Charger Expert 29er wheels. They are a solid wheelset, and I set them up with Specialized 2Bliss tires with ease. The rear hub is a 3 pawl, 30 tooth steel freehub body. The freehub body had a little drag at first but I pulled it apart (super easy) and added a little oil and it has been perfect since. It's louder than a DT but quieter than a Hope.
