    New Wheels (DT swiss)

    I got me's some new wheels..
    DTswiss single speed on DT 4.1d rims. It took a while deciding which rims to spend the money on and this is my first High Dollar set of rims, so far I like them. They are light and seem to be pretty durable so far, still to early to tell fo sure.

    Very nice

    Are you going with the DT tubeless kit? How'd you like the 6 bolt disc adapters? Any pics of those?

    I do not have a tubeless kit, yet. (slime tubes, usefull in the desert) I am looking into getting a tubless kit soon.

    I like the 6 bolt disc adapter a lot. When taking off the allen screws on the old hubs(Spot), they took a lot of torque getting them off. Now I can take the rotors off pretty easy with the adapter, not that I will be switching them out anytime soon.

    I will try to get some pics of the adapter side.

    Not that you need to worry about it

    When I remove torx/disc brake bolts I use a rear axle slid over the end of the tool. The extra leverage makes it easier to break the bolts loose without rounding out the head.

    Ya, I would use a big long bar for taking of the free wheel for extra leverage. I am so glad I won't be needing to do that anymore. Taking off free wheels for me was a pain in the booty.

    I have a similar back up set of wheels - DT 4.1d/SuperCompSpokes/DT Oynx hubs (non ss - but converted with spacers). I really like mine alot. I set mine up with the DT tubeless kit right away and they pumped right up and never dropped a pound so far... unlike the XM819 wheels I have on the SS... the front one, no matter the tire drops pressure in a week. Looks like I'll be adding some sealant to the XM819's soon.
