    Azonic outlaws. I hear there pretty stout and don't weigh a ton, plus there like $300 for the set.
    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    yeah i am trying to stay under 300. i saw the azonics they do look prett burly. my other option is this guy that emailed me has the wheels off his demo 8 and they are brand new, i guess he will sell them for about 300. or i am considering buying this bombshell 24 inch rear wheel and keeping the front wheel i have now. i can buy it for 100 brand new. to many options..

    24 inch sucks to peda;l...if that helps...That is why I sold my Big Hit and got the Recoil. The Recoil pretty much has the same geometry as my Big Hit, but with 26 instead of 24 inch tire

    will the azonics fit on my bike? the axle on there now is 10mm qr. the wheels i have seen come in a 12mm with a qr conversion kit. does this mean that they will fit on a bike with a 10mm dropout with the conversion?

    The quick release will fit your bike. The thru axel is kinda dig-14 mm i think. Azonic sells another thru axel that is 12 mm but the ends are 10mm-Perfect fit on my Eliminator and steelhead. Hope this helps.
    I watch the O.C. cause it makes me happy...

    The quick release will fit your bike. The thru axel is kinda big-14 mm i think(wont fit my 10 mm dropouts). Azonic sells another thru axel that is 12 mm but the ends are 10mm-Perfect fit on my Eliminator and steelhead. Its called the momentum axel(135mm) The recoil axel is the same but 150mm .Hope this helps.

    For under $300 the Outlaws are probably your best bet.

    I didn't have mine long but I liked them and didn't have any problems. The price made them even nicer.
