    Chumba wheelset

    Anybody know who they OEM this from? I'm just curious what actual hubs and rims are used to make their wheelset.

    Anybody have any input on durability of the wheelset? How's the engagement on the rear hub?

    Thanks,

    Rims are custom from WTB.. you won't find the specs online on these. Hubs are Kore. Engagement is good.. they have more engagement points than my old mavics. Definitely a stout wheelset, my only issue was that they weren't tubeless. They can be made tubeless with any tubeless conversion kit though..

    Do you know if you can buy the wheelset on it's own (w/o purchase of a bike)? If so, do you know what retail is on it?

    Thanks!

    Talked to Jason @ Chumba on the phone this afternoon. Neilster was exactly right about the wheelset.

    We carry them

    Yup, I'm a retailer, but someone asked. And we advertise here on mtbr, too, so peace.

    We stock these as separate items along with other Chumba parts (grips, saddle, chainstay protector). It has been a while since I weighed any. We have several sets, but they are all mounted up with tires and tubes right now. I remember them weighing like 1100/1300 grams front and rear. That is without skewers, and as a 20 mm thru axle in front. The QR adapter is beefy.

    Ted spec'ed these like he specs his frames, if you ask me. They are not that much heavier than cross country parts, but they are flex free and built for durability. Perfect all mountain category stuff. Maybe light freeride/DH use, depending on how big you go and how you like to land.

    No problem

    You could run bigger than 2.5, the rims are 27 mm ride. I ran Kenda Kinetics 2.6 on them.
