    Yes, they do. Two bottles of 2 oz Stans sealant and a package of Stan's tubeless valve stems. Basically, the same additions that come with the Chargers.

    I see they now have these in 26" as well, but the price is $430 I wonder if they'll go down. I know who's looking.

    ^ Black Flags maybe, I've never seen the Chargers so low, and I'm in need of a white or black set in 26" but not going to pay over $200 for the set.

    26ers are $200 all day for the experts

    Black Flag Expert Wheelset Pair 26" | eBay

    But the 29ers are all over $400 that I can see. Thats why this deal on the comps at Nashbar is so good the cheapest 29er Comps on ebay are $50 more.

    15 percent off and free shipping right now. They seldom offer free shipping with a discount.

    Free shipping doesn't apply to wheels though. They seem to manipulate it so it always comes out about the same from me; between $222-$227

    Tax hurts too. Still a good deal. Mine seem very well built with no noise on the first rides, unlike my crests/hope set that pinged up the first steep hill.

    What do these really weigh? Did you get them on a scale?

    2,150 grams, but they feel faster. I think a lot of the weight is in the hubs, mostly the rear. Engagement seems better than my 24 POC hopes and they are a bit less loud.

    I've seen them under 200 a few times, most recently on st paddy's day.

    I think nashbar throws out regional prices (different for different people).

    California is less of a good deal because of the high sales tax too.

    For those of you hard charging 26'' riders, I just swung this deal:

    SunRingle A.D.D Pro Rear - $179

    Sun Ringle A.D.D. Pro Rear Mountain Bike Wheel 26" 135x12mm Black

    Coupon Code: 37UTSPQ for $20 off $100. Or use 10Speed for 10% off total order

    Comes to $159 shipped for a bad a$$ rear wheel.

    If anyone locates a similar front let me know, but I maybe doing my own build on the matching Inferno31 rim.

    Which end caps? These seem to make the weight vary. This is a great set for half the price of Stan's and only a little more weight.

    just bought the charger experts for 247 shipped from bike wagon. A little extra, but having the 142mm option is worth it to me, and they should be a little lighter.

    Didn't I see that this weekend bike nashbar has these wheel sets at 20% off of $249? That would make them $200.

    They routinely go on sale on Nashbar. Great upgrade for a lot of stock entry level bikes.

    Just added to cart and it took $50 off. Tried again and it shows 249 now. Must've been a fluke.

    Hmmm, I don't know how that worked for you, but I'd buy it quick. I only see the free shipping when I add.

    BTW - the PRO wheel (ADD) I got from Bike Wagon is surprisingly nice. Need to put some miles on it before final verdict but so far impressed.

    I have my cart with the 199 plus free shipping, this happened in january when they were on sale for like 160. I added the wheels to the cart yesterday when I found out about the sale and today when I got back my items are still in cart but the new shipping also kicked in. too bad I don't need em. I also just went to paypal to check out and it didn't update. I wonder if they would fulfill the order.

    I think you have to apply a code to knock the extra $49 off.

    You use a code? I don't see anything that would discount them from $249.

    The rear hub is a bit loud (about like a Hope hub). Ok by me as I use that to remind those on the trail that I am coming.

    Very nice wheelset considering they are already tubeless ready with tape installed, included valves and two 2oz bottles of Stan's (Black Flag version).

    Are these hubs ones you can add grease to in order to quiet them down a bit? I'm not really interested in doing it, just thought I read somewhere that it was an option.

    Nashbar 20% off = 45894

    Sun Ringle Charger Comp 29" Tubeless Mountain Wheelset
    $249 - 20% ($50) = $199 + oversize s&h ($22.98) = $222.97 shipped.
