Good for the price but pay attention to spokes

By Tyler

Comments about WTB Frequency 650B XT Disc Wheelset:

Great price on these wheels, cheaper then it would be to build yourself from the same parts bought here. Fairly true out of the box with about a millimeter or two of wobble. Hubs are great, rims are great and seem like they will hold up.

I dropped the rating to 3 stars as through these are 5 star components for the price you will have to pay attention to spoke tension. I've given them three rides so far, totaling 60 miles with about half being New England single track (bear brook) after each ride I have found spokes loose enough to turn the spoke nipples with my fingers. This is my first set of pre-built wheels and I don't think it should be happening weighing just under 200lbs with gear and not doing any drops. Also after my first ride (all fireroads) I noticed both the front and rear wheel has similar bent spokes which either happened during shipping or building. Loosing the spoke tension and working them with needle nose pliers got them straight.

I would recommend these to anyone that understands how spoke tension should be and is capable retentioning a wheel, not for someone looking for never have to maintain as loose spokes taco wheels.

Good solid wheels for the money.

Comments about WTB Frequency 650B XT Disc Wheelset:

These aren't four-star wheels, but I think they're a four-star bargain. I bought them to convert my kid's hardtail bike to tubeless (I swear he went through two tubes a week). Put the tape on them, mounted the Maxxis tubeless-ready tires, and they popped right on. Trouble free and survived a couple of days at Mammoth with no issues.

    Comments about WTB Frequency 650B XT Disc Wheelset:

    The wheels were delivered well packaged and true. For the price these are solid wheels. I wanted something a bit wider than my 19mm mavic rims to run wider tubeless tires. I'm running 2.35 Kenda Nevegals tubless with these rims and added about a 1/4 inch of contact over my previous setup. Very satisfied with this no frills/solid/tubeless wheelset.

      These wheels came in and they're awesome. The shimano deore XT hubs are super smooth, and making them tubeless was cake. Matched them with a pair of WTB trail boss wheels I was already using and what a difference tubeless makes. On wheels actually made for tubeless. Strong wheels,you won't be disappointed. Buy them.
