"But you don't really have a disc wheel! That's the hit. It won't last, it doesn't sound cool, and if you don't tape it, it sounds like a rattling garbage can lid. But it is more aero. Next time I'll probably get a real disc from Hed."fisherman76

Ease of installation

I find it to be a pain the rear to take my cassette off to put this on, but it forces me to clean my cassette, which is a good thing. The screws alone don't hold it tight enough to the wheel, so I use some electric tape around the rim to accomplish this.

(5)

Ease of use

It works. I can't vouch for any time savings, but it doesn't make me slower, so I can't say anything negative about it. Looks good!

(4)

Quality of Construction

It's not a perfectly flush fit, but it's dang close. It's plastic, not carbon.

(3)

Fit

Like I said, not perfectly flush, but close. I ended up filing the non drive side hub hole wider to fit my hub better.

(5)

Comfort

Doesn't really apply.

(5)

Adjustability

I was happy to find I didn't need a crack pipe to get my pump head in there, which is great.

(4)

Durability

It's gonna last two years tops, but for about 15% of the cost of a dedicated disc wheel! I'll take it.

(5)

Value

Turns your wheel into a disc. Great value!

(5)

Appearance

Up to you to make it look cool. Stickers, paint, etc.

(5)

Customer Service

Yeah, got it on time.

(4)

Performance

Some of the electric tape came off mid race but I didn't notice. Left a nice sludge on my brake track. The hole cover stickers don't stay on at all, but they are pretty superfluous.

Strengths

Get a disc wheel!

Weakness

It's a hack job, at the end of the day. Just given the cost of materials, it shouldn't cost what it does, but nobody else is offering a better version as far as I know
