Stan's ZTR Crest Review

I want to start by saying that I could not be happier with my new Stan's wheels.  I was excited to pick them up so I could see how the gold Hope hubs and gold nipples were going to look.  Jimmie Colflesh built a solid set of wheels for me.  I got them and couldn't wait to slap on a set of rotors and some Stan's Sealant so I could see how they rolled. 

I was imediately impressed with how easy my tires inflated with Stan's rims.  I struggled in the past with inflating my Fast Track tires on my DT hoops.  No more white nuckles with the Stan's.  Both tires inflated instantly and sealed without leaks. 

Yankee Springs would be my first ride on these.  I can't believe what a difference a good set of wheels makes.  They feel solid underneath me as I roll over tree roots and navigate rocky sections.  My bike is noticeably lighter and the wheels spin up quicker than the stock DT set.  Overall I am so happy with the Stan's hoops that I hate to take them off!!

  1. Brandon,

    I'm looking into purchasing a pair of Crest 29er wheels. I've read some mixed reviews on them. It has been close to a year since your post.

    What is your opinion of them now? Have you had any problems with them? What's your weight? I only ask this due to the 190 lb weight limit Stan's recommends and I'm a 170 lb rider.
