    Any UST Wheel deals?

    Looking for a new wheel set and not so much interested in the Stan's rims as I am UST rims. Easton has done me wrong, so looking to the other fine folks who make UST MTB 29er wheel sets.

    Nothing crazy expensive, but durable and simple and on the lighter than heavier side.

    Appreciate knowing of any deals you may know of. Thanks!

    I snagged a set of black flag experts on eBay brand new for 200. Just gotta keep an eye out. I believe they are UST.

    Nope, while tubeless they are not UST, they use Stan's BST.

    The Clymb has some Crank Brothers wheels right now. Good prices. They are the current versions (2's and 3's) that have the newer hub, so hopefully the chances of hub problems are greatly diminished. Clymb is offering a 20% off also.

    I have the original Iodines. While I guess they are not UST certified, the work just as well as my Mavic 819/823's. No tape or other nonsense involved.

    Let me know if you haven't joined yet and I will send you an invite. If join under my invite, not only do I get $15 credit, but you get $15 credit.

    Occasionally Shimano wheelsets go on sale.

    Ebay has lots of Bontrager wheelsets where you can run the TLR rim strip and make it tubeless.

    Personally I would go with a custom wheelset with WTB TCS rims. Their rims are UST certified when used with Stan's style tape to cover the rim holes, and you get a wheelset built with standard parts instead of the proprietary spoke designs on so many of those prebuilt UST wheelsets. My experience with the Frequency TCS models in 29 and 650b has been really good with tubeless ready tires. They're not the lightest hubs, but SLX hubs with DT Comps comes out to about $350 before shipping on Universal Cycles custom wheelset builder. Freq i23 rims should make that around 2100g for the set, Freq i19 rims should make it around than 1900g

    Totally agree with above post. I got a "sweet deal" on some some XT wheelset and after replacing 6 spokes it was no longer such a sweet deal; the spokes cost me $8 each and maybe the shop ripped me off by charging $60 to do it because they had to undo all the spokes.

    btw - just ran across this thread.

    I ended up with a set of Bontrager TLR Race Lite 29er wheels, work very well, light weight. Got a good deal.
