SOLD! 27.5 Wheelset, DIALED! King/Spank

Post by DHgnaR on Sun Dec 01, 2013 11:02 am

I know this might not be the right place to sell a 27.5 wheelset but if you're thinking about building a new trail rig up these wheels are an awesome set.
I built these up for a really nice custom Turner Burner build, after a few rides I was sent another wheelset that I ended up running with so these are practically brand spanking new.

Specs:
15QR front w/ 142x12 rear laced with DT Swiss spokes and DT nipples to Spank OOZY EVO 27.5 rims.
Included are some brand new Schwable tires, Hans Damph front and Racing Ralph rear.
(King makes swappable endcaps for different axle sizes if you're not 12 rear or QR15 front)

Front hub is brand new and has maybe 3 rides on it, same for the rims and tires.
Rear hub has maybe 3 months of use now.
Built up I'd ballpark this wheelset around 1600g not including tires for a stiff/strong wheelset in a lightweight package.

Asking $600

Sorry to go off on a tangent, but how do you like the Burner? I know it depends on the set-up. It's a bike I'm considering. I've only done a parking lot demo. I'm right between a Med and a Lg, but have only tried the Lg. I'm pretty happy with the 6" of travel that my RM Slayer has. It's either wait to see what comes out next year or pull the trigger on a new RM Slayer or the Turner. Not sure yet. I may wait for Sea Otter.

I'm liking it more and more every time I ride it. Honestly, I wasn't blown away the first month or so on it. I couldn't get used to the bigger wheels, and I wasn't happy with the CTD Evo shock that came on it. But after swapping over to an old DHX Air and dialing everything in a bit better it's really growing on me. I'm finally able to start rallying it like a mini DH bike now. I'm on a large with a 70mm stem and it's nice and stretched out for climbing, but I think I'm going to drop down to a 60 or even 50mm stem to make it a bit more stable on the fast descents.
Stoked on the suspension so far, it pedals well enough that I don't need to turn the ProPedal on or wish I had lockout or anything like that; I keep my rear shock in the same configuration regardless of riding up or down. You do notice the increase traction due to the bigger ground contact patch with the 27.5 wheels when climbing steep, loose sections; my wheels seem to break loose less often. I'm still not used to cornering hard with the bigger wheels though. Also, the bigger wheels in the rough stuff finally shined for me for the first time last weekend. I've always been able to clean widow maker and stairway at Noble, but specifically widow maker I rode cleaner than ever and it felt way less rough/sketchy then normal. Who knows, maybe there is something to the bigger wheel size (I've always been a hater).
But yeah, beyond getting over the initial weirdness of bigger wheels, geo and suspension are pretty spot on and the bike generally rips.

General parking lot test felt good. Thanks for the honest review. I've I can't get in a side by side test, I may still wait until at least Otter. Thanks!
