WHEELS

Australian Mountain Bike - - Tested Upgrading Your Bike -

This is a big up­grade, but it’s ac­tu­ally pretty easy. Chang­ing your wheels is like chang­ing your tyres – but with a more no­tice­able dif­fer­ence if done right. A bet­ter set of wheels will in­flu­ence how your bike ac­cel­er­ates, turns, slows down and feels in the air. The wheels on a lot of en­try-level and intermediate bikes will give you the fea­tures you need, but not at the weight or per­for­mance level you end up want­ing.

A good pre-built wheelset like a Stans Crest or Flow can make a huge dif­fer­ence over a stock wheel thanks to sealed bear­ing hubs that can be con­verted to just about any axle stan­dard, low weight, good strength, and they’re tube­less ready with just about any tyre right out of the box.
