    no way to replace the kevlar strings short of buying another. Part of the twisted beauty and mystic of this product is the fact it's an expensive and disposable luxury that only the elite ran; not unlike the cost of servicing a Ferrari, its a known cost of having the best.

    enjoy it!

    How do you clean an old disc drive?

    Does anyone know a good way to clean out grease and grime from these things? I left a wheel in the closet and forgot about it for about 20 years. Apparently bleach is very bad for kevlar (at least kevlar body armor).... I was thinking of using degreasers, but I don't know if that will affect either the kevlar or the plastic sheeting.

    As you can see from the picture, there was quite a bit of grease when i threw the whole wheel back in the bag.

    Has anyone dismantled one of these wheels? I wanted to clean out the insides of the grime, then rebuild the wheel with new graphics, stickers, etc.. and hang it on the wall.

    thanks in advance!

    Can't see it mattering too much on the blue disk since you can't see inside it anyway.

    I have a feeling once you take it apart and rebuild, it'll never be ridable again...but if you're just going to hang it, I suppose that won't matter either.

    Why don't you build up one of the T-Disk Pros sittin' there and send me that blue one. :P

    to be honest, i'm too scared to ride it now. It is 20 years old, after all - (and I am no longer 18, and thus have better developed prefrontal cortex, lol). Hence it's going on the wall. The other wheels I also completely forgot about, i was planning on building my dream wheels back then, but i ran out of money for parts. It's funny how time flies when you are really busy....

    I cant complain - that wheel served me well on a number of bikes for a long time.

    Thankfully it let go while I was standing on the pedals going up a hill rather than blasting down one.

    Seems you have had your hands wrapped around lots of discs of various sizes and colors, some soft and floppy, others tensioned and stiff.
    You truly are a Disc-man.

    Not trying to be a jerk but I'll ask the question anyway.

    Why? Weight? That's the only benefit I can see if it is one.

    And of course the god awful yet memorable thunder they make?

    Not even sure they were lighter than a well built spoked wheel.

    Sound - definitely

    Maybe a little bit of suspension.

    Certainly seemed to absorb shock in a manner similar to that of certain frame materials. Some transmit every bump and rut, some seem to dampen it a bit better.
    Disc wheels helped absorb some of the shock.

    Or maybe it was and still is all in my head.

    Some tinsel off the Christmas tree and a little Elmer's glue and we'll be set!

    Actually in the midst of using the rim and hardware to build up another, nearly worn-out blue disc. Probably won't last long but I like 'em.

    I raced on a disk on my Yeti ARC in '92. I have a chance to acquire one for my Yeti Ultimate. Any thoughts from those of you that have owned one recently. I NEVER had an issue with mine back in the day. 200+ rides and 20+ races. Bike was stolen and i never had another. Are they hard to build?

    I use them all of the time.

    You have to accept that it wonít last as long as a spoked wheel and itís a heartbreak when it fails since you canít simply ďreplace a few spokesĒ.

    A bit tedious and donít forget the Loctite on the hub screws/nuts but straightforward overall. Youíll have to re-tension and re-true it after the first ride or two but afterwards it should be good for quite a while.

    Nuthin like the rumble of a T-disc going down the trail.

    I ran a Tioga Tension disc on my single speed back in 2002-2006. I had my built up using a Sram SL90 hub which had removable 6 bolt disc mounts. I then used a single spped adaptor on the cassette. I loved that wheel on that bike.
