After riding on a couple different sets of first gen Cobalts, I saw the HNR had these in their lineup. I decided to grab a set for a complete custom build I was doing at the time. First thing I noticed was the different free hub in the back, much more quiet than the 6 pawl design of the first gens. Also, slightly more latent engagement. The wheels still have the same stiff crisp response in varying terrain as the first gens. Also, IMO, the look hella nice too.

I bought this to replace an aging unit on the bike. Initially it was a little confusing to figure out which one to get, bottom or top pull, high or low clamp until I got my hands on one. The install was pretty basic getting it dialed in. Performance wise it's held up good, shifting is decent. Seems to be on par with most of Sram's X9 lineup.

So far I've used these for XC, downhill and all mountain, both on the front and rear. After two hard season's worth of abuse they have held up and worn extremely well. The tread pattern is an excellent all around design for most of the terrain here along the Wasatch Front in Utah. Cornering grip was improved greatly after switching to these tires, as well as better rolling resistance. Once these eventually wear out I'll replace them with the same setup new.

I bought this one after checking it out down at the Back Country store location in West Valley. The machining on these posts seems to rival that of Thomson. The adjustment works great for the seat. The anodized gray version looks killer. I run three of these posts on all three of my bikes. Great post of the price.
