    have you tried vuelta rims?

    I am seeing some rims of the name Vuelta online. THere is not a lot of information about them. I guess you could say i do mostly freeride so im loooking at the free ride rim. Any comments on these rims>? even if it isnt the free ride rim i just want some information on vuelta products.

    Only rule of thumb for freeride...if you haven't heard of them don't try em. Freeriding is too expensive to be taking chances on unknown products.

    They make o.k. roadbike rims though generally you see them on low end bikes.

    One of my friend has some Vuelta freeride rims on his S.C. Heckler and has had no problems so far. He claims his brother has a set that he rides way harder and had just as good of luck. That's about the most I can tell except that the yellow color looks pretty darned awesome. Oh yeah, I've tried the aforementioned Heckler, and the liked the setup. They seem no worse for wear after I did a sloppy drop that resulted in a pinch flat. I guess that's the limit of my experience though.
