I'm really happy with my current 729s I laced up to Hope hubs. I'm just curious…
Anyone rocking them? Figured Whis [HTML_REMOVED] Van would be the place to see them around.

I know these things are heavier, more expensive, narrower, and unable to run tubeless. How's their durability? They hold up well to chunk? Worth the tradeoffs?

to me they seem like an awsome idea, but I think they wont become popular until they lower the weight and make them less bulky

Obviously they're gnar enough to ride on piles of rocks. You can even opt out of wearing a helmet, throw on some camo shorts and work on your ass out technique while you're at it….

Prettymuch the response I expected. They are a pretty heavy setup.

I guess they are the kind of item that nobody wants to pay for, but would ride if they were free…

Way too heavy. These would have been great in the big bike Bender era but for the average rider I see no real benifit. Sure you don't have to true them but if you ever do break them thats it. A friend of mine had Spins back in the day, I thought they were so cool until he broke one of the composite spokes.

i wouldnt even ride them if i was paid. hand down they are one of the worst inventions ive ever seen, they fit perfectly on that RaceBike with a risse bigfoot, grab some beat gear uppers throw on your dual front disc drop your visor sag your goggles and do a no footer in the bone yard. SICK.

I'd be paranoid about getting a branch getting caught in the front wheel!

Tioga Disc Drive is where it's at….
