Anyone have any experience with the Alex Sub wheels that bikeisland sells? They are the same wheels that bikesdirect puts on the Kilo TT Pro and the Dawes SST-AL. Looking for a cheap/decent wheelset for a beater conversion.
I searched first and didn't find any helpful info. Any help is appreciated.
i just bought some and expected to be delivered in a few hours for my 88 world sport conversion ill let you know how they are then...unless someone else chimes in...
You are exactly who I want to talk to about this. These wheels would be going on a world sport conversion for me as well. Did you buy wheels only or did you get the whole-setup with tires, cogs, and tubes?
On a side note, how far have you gotten with your conversion? Are you going to use the original crank and BB or swap them out?
As far as the wheel's quality goes I haven't had any issues with them yet. Standard formula hubs so my surly stuff goes on smooth. All I did was true them right out of the box and they're still running straight for the past couple months. I would run these over the Vuelta wheels they sell, a friend of mine has those and they just look a bit cheap, these on the other hand look to be good quality and time will tell how durable they really are.

I can second that. The black/machined uber-cheapie Vueltas that bikeisland sells and come stock on "The Hour" are pretty bad. I have ridden on those wheels for just barely over a month and the rear hub already has an odd wobble to it.
