    Sunline V1 DH Wheelset

    Anyone used these or read any reviews on it? The specs look decent, fairly light but I cant seem to find any opinions on it.

    I have the AM wheelset on my 575. I live in Phoenix so most of our trails are rocky and you're constantly hammering the rim against rocks. So far I am impressed with their durability and engagement. I felt the difference on the trail right away and the weight savings on my first ride. Been riding them hard for six months now and no issues. Hope this helps.

    Absolutely not. I don't know what was worse about that, the overwhelming smell of Tresemme coming from your hair or the Patron and burrito bomb that surprisingly didn't clog the toilet.

    I ride front range, like pikes peak, etc. i use this wheelset if im pedaling up, so most everything during the off season. It getts ridden about 3 times a week consistently,more weather permitting. theyve hit 8 foot drops, and 20-30 ft gaps, and plenty of rocks. Im not a hack, i just use my bike to its full potential

    i hope they're allright...just snagged a set of the V1 DH wheelset on chainlove for $275. Anyone know if the claimed weight (1967 grams) is anywhere near the actual weight?

    Just mounted up a set from the CL deal. Didn't weigh them (no scale) but they pedal much easier than the Outlaws they replaced (should with a claimed weight of over 17 oz. less than the Azonics). I'd love to see an actual real world weight on them.

    Make sure you, check spoke tension. Dude took his outa the box, on the bike, and the front rim spontaneously tacoed (so he says) hammering the "Wall" at fontucky.

    Well I got them and weighed them out and the specification weights are right on the money with the rear at 1065g and the front just under 900g. Now will they hold up? Thats another question, unfortunately I dont have a bike to put them on anymore.

    I got the same wheels recently from chainlove. so far I have had no luck getting them tubeless. not sure wtf. I have tried a WTB Dissent and a Schwalbe Dirty Dan. I just got two DHF Exos and a DHF SuperTacky. both usually set nicely on my 823s. I am hoping they work well with the Sunlines
