    Comments about Reynolds MTN R27.5 Am Wheelset:

    Got these for 2.4 AM tires and "heavy duty" rides as backup set for my XC wheels. They have been great and stiffness is good for rough stuff and jumps. I have them on my hardtail so they get abused more than the full suss. No problems so far and like the options to change QR standards with inserts. This is a good wheelset for the money.

    Horrible Hubs

        Comments about Reynolds MTN R27.5 Am Wheelset:

        Rear wheel lost all tension after two rides. Had taken them to LBS to make sure they were re tensioned correctly. Two rides later the free hub had imploded on itself.
        Now it is the waiting game to see if they will be replaced

          Comments about Reynolds MTN R27.5 Am Wheelset:

          Right out of the box, I didn't like the hubs. They just don't spin very freely when mounted and spun by hand. The rims taped up easy, and inflated quickly with stans.
          Time will tell with the hubs, but for now, my heckler is night and day from the 19mm xc wheels I had before. These are stiff and of course run lower pressures tubeless. I've been beating them for a month now at bootleg canyon in LV, NV. So far so good. I am happy to the tune of 4 stars.

          Stiff wheels

          Easy swap between axl adaptors
          nice pawl, engagement, noise (just enough) etc.

            Got a few rides in on these and they seem to be built well and take the abuse they've been given. The rear free hub is a little noisy but doesn't miss a beat.

            The subtle black & white color scheme is a very good contrast to my bright green Bronson CC frame and blends well with all the other black or black & white bits.
