Here's what others have to say...

4 5

My first time with Stan's was with a set of Iron Cross Team's. Much to my dismay, they were a bit weak for me. Soaking wet, I am roughly 165lbs. I was contemplating on getting a 29er set of wheels for my cross bike, but then someone on the Stan's board mentioned the 400's with their 250lbs weight limit. So here we are, round two!

I've got about 600 miles (300 or so of those are from pure singletrack)on them so far and they are holding up nicely. The only thing I am not super jazzed about is their specific Alpha rim strip I had to get for them. If you're running road tires, you won't need them, but if you're running low pressure cross tires, you NEED them. Without them, you can suffer a nasty blowout/rolloff. Ack! No bueno!The strip itself is similar to Stan's other strips, but for what ever reason, even though its for the Alpha specifically, it doesn't sit well when you mount the tire. It tends to hang over the rim when the tire is on. Evidently, this is normal according to Stan's. It's not that pretty, but it gets the job done. After the upcoming season, I'll see how everything holds up and re-evaluate.

When the time came to get some wheels for my new cross build, it came down between Stan's and Velocity's. I was edged over to Stan's because they were a bit easier on the wallet at the time. Weight of both pairs were just shy of each other.

Initial setup wasn't too bad. In all, it was about 20 minutes of cursing profusely(this is my first time going tubeless, I am totally late to the party) and getting the white Stan's all over my hands. After 2 failed attempts, I got it on. Whew! The second wheel went on in a flash.

Riding on the Team's had me a bit sketched. On roads and dirt roads, no prob. They are awesome. However, once I hit the trail with them, they are somewhat more fragile than I anticipated. They have a 185 limit and I only weigh about 165ish. I tend to ride it like I stole it and of course, they are a bit weak for me. Ack!
Before giving them anymore abuse, I promptly trued them up and set them up on my wife's bike. She's a happy camper and so am I... I ended up getting a pair of the Alpha 400's since they have a 250lbs weight limit.

CK headsets are where it's at. Over the years I've strayed from them, most recently was for a Cane Creek 110 (super awesome by the way, same price range too) but I keep coming back to CK. It may have to do with all the color options they offer... Anyhow, it sure is a ton of coin to drop on a headset, but they work flawlessly.

Tech notes: I almost went with the Inset 1 since my current fork is a non-tapered 1 1/8, but then I got to thinking, most forks these days are going the tapered route. I plan on upgrading in the future. Keep that in mind when ordering.

I actually picked these up for my wife's new cross bike when BC was having some crazy outlet promo deal a few months back. Sure, they are last years model, but they are carbon!!! I think I scored them for around 60% off or somethin' to that nature. Anyhow, they are runnin' like a champ with no issues at all. I converted them to a 1x10 setup on her cross bike (running a Race Face NW 40t ring) so she only has to worry about shifting in the rear. Less stuff to worry about, more time to focus on flyin' down the course!

Note: These DO NOT come with a BB. I thought they did, but alas, they did not :-\

My first use of BB7's was back in the late 90's. I was too cheap at the time to get hydros. They worked, but definitely weren't all that great. I am tempted to say it was like a lateral move away from V-Brakes. Heh!

Fast forward to 2014...

Getting into cross this season, our frames are now disc. After many reviews, I pulled the trigger on a couple sets for our new rides. Whoa! Night and day difference from when I used them before.

We've got about 700+ miles on them, encountered mud, snow, and countless water crossings... they keep on stoppin! When the price of hydro's come down (in the road/cross world this time) I'll have to see how they compare. But until then, they're kickin' some major A!
