Recommended Posts

I'm an everyday MTB rider spend about 12 hours in the saddle a month mostly 50/50 jeep and single track and some rock gardens etc.and do the odd 55km and stage race.Been offered the following from a local hubber and he appears to to be a honest and nice guy and reckons the parts should be fine for my riding

 

Olympic ZTR rims with tune hubs and DT swiss spokes

DT Swiss XRC 100 carbon fork.

 

Is this over the top and will these parts last? I was thinking Mavic Crossmax SLR Disc and FOX FRL 100

 

Some advice would be great.

Wheels sound good - run the same rims on Ringle hubs and love them. The fork is a pure racing fork, made for lightweight and not durability. If its weight loss you're after, then yes, otherwise Fox is still the best when it comes to reliability.

The DT fork = much more maintenance...

 

Without offending anyone... search MTBR.com for Tune hub issues... there's many...

All of those parts sounds like weight weeny stuff.

 

If youre not a Racer, I might steer clear.

 

What are you paying for the stuff?
