    Mavic Deemax

    Alright, I'm seriously thinkin about getting Deemax for my '05 CoilerD. I want some opinions on the Deemax wheels or other DH UST wheels from REAL OWNERS. No guessing, rumors, or second hand BS. Just the facts if you please. THANX

    I like mine, especailly the spoke mounting. No problems so far and the color goes well with my black bullit.

    I have had one in the rear for three rides and its already toast. One ride was out in Pheonix with pretty nasty rocky trail and it faired fairly well. It has a nice stiff feel to it. The other was some dirt jumping where I cased the backside of one of the doubles(my fault,**** happens!). It tweaked the rim a little and pulled the spokes out of the back of the hub. The Mavic 223 I had for two years before took larger similiar hits and faired far better. I beat the **** out of that rim and trued it once in two years before finally sending it to it grave. At least to say the rim was still be rideable without the spokes dangling in the wheel untill I could retrue it. The design of the DeeMax hub is a straight gauge spoke. If the rim tweaks due to a bad hit or case in any way the spokes have a chance to pull out the back and deem it unrideable. I was a little upset but like I said **** happens. I dont know if id buy another one due to the price and my experience with it. I also heard its not for a heavy or hard/heavy rider either. This is just my experience so take it with a grain of salt. Id just expect a wheel thats so $$$$ to take more then one small bad hit.
