    Vuelta Team SL parts

    I just wanted to let everyone know where you can get some parts for the Vuelta Team Superlite wheels. I really like these wheels and plan on keeping them for a while, so it is nice to know where to get parts. I just did some work on mine, so I thought I would share.

    You can get replacement hybrid ceramic and full ceramic bearings from Boca bearings.

    A while back my cassette got a little loose and chewed up my freehub. I contacted Vuelta XRP and they said to get a new one through bikeisland. Bikeisland can only get a steel replacement which is about 80g heavier. I was able to contact Vuelta USA (NOT Vuelta XRP) and get an alloy freehub for a Montagna Superlite disc wheel (same wheels just different name). I am not quite sure what the relationship between Vuelta XRP and Vuelta USA is, but their wheels are the same just with different names and decals.

    If you want an alloy freehub contact these guys: http://www.vueltausa.com/

    Here is where you can get a steel freehub at bikeisland:

    Spokes you can get through bikesisland. They are pretty pricey at $2 each.

    Thanks for the info ljsmith!
    I was going to order the one off bikeisland after the stock HG50 cassette on my Fantom DS Pro chewed right through the alloy freehub after a couple of rides. Looks like you've saved me some weight!
