    Bombproof Wheels under $300.00

    I bought my 1st freeride bike in December. A new 04 Stinky. The Deore hubs suck (I broke the front axle into 3 pieces yesterday on a 5' drop to flat). The 321's are questionable. I need a new set of wheels, and found some 05 DeeMax's for $525.00, but can't use the front because my Drop Off Triples are "throughaxleless". I'm not ready to buy a JuniorT, so, I need some "skewered" wheels. People have suggested Azonic Outlaws. Any monkeys wanna share their experience with a newbie.

    Thanks!

    Outlaws.

    Good call on the Azonics. Burly rims, and the hubs are convertable so no matter what fork system you run you will have a wheelset that wont leave you high and dry.

    Yeah I've been running the Azonic Outlaws for 6 months now and they'll holding up great. The back wheel lost half it's spokes when a 3" stick went through it but it didn't damage the hub or rim. Laced it back up and it's running great.

    the 321's are good rims, if they are still good lace the front to a new hub, get one that converts from qr to 20mm like other people have said, it will save you money when you upgrade the fork.

    Go with the outlaws, i'm running them with stans this season on my Turner DHR, I don't have any time on them yet but I hear they're solid and they look the part.

    The 321 rims may hold up for awhile if you build them back up, but i don't think they will be as tough as the outlaws. These are the weaker XM321 not the D321 remember. (The D321 is an incredible rim by the way, I've had my D321 wheels for years and they still are perfect)

    Drops to flat = broken sh*t. Get used to it.

    The outlaws he has were my race wheels from last year and they were bommer! I took them off for the notorious rocky courses and also full days at whistler, but use i put them through i only had to tension them a few times. Also i only had to clean the hub once. outlwas are a great deal for the $$.

    The front hub on the Deemax IS convertible. It comes with 2 sets of adapters-one for 110x20mm through-axle and one for 100x9mm quick-release axle. I had a pair and ran them on a Z1 with standard drop-outs and a Super T with 20mm drop-outs.

    i got a atomlab set from them for 225, hand built. They are (the web site) the best in my opinion.
