Stan's ZTR Crest Rim Review

Product Reviews - Customer Reviews

Rating:

Reviewer: Travis Williams (Richmond, VA)

Review Title: Stans ZTR Crest rim Light-Fast and tough.

Review: The Crest is my 4th Stan's No Tubes Rim. It's not as stiff as the Arch series but if you want a rim that's light, strong and just plain gets the job done this is your rim. I'm a Clydesdale and although I can sometimes feel some flex in hard tight corners I have no complaints with this rim. I bought it for a race only wheelset that has since become my daily driver wheels and after 1.5 years the rims are still going strong. A race worthy rim that takes the abuse of the trail.

Great reviews are to be admired and taken into consideration. Since you say "I bought it for a race only wheelset that has since become my daily driver wheels and after 1.5 years the rims are still going strong" it would appear that you are very knowledgeable on this subject and have tried others. I hope that you will continue to provide us with your expertise.

There are reviews in America that seem fake and then there are those, like this one, that truly make sense so it is good to pay attention to them.

What type of hubs are you running the Crest's with?
written by ConomaBike , May 30, 2012
I'm also a clydesdale and I'm considering getting a pair of Crest's with the same "original" intentions as yours: race only. What kind of hubs/spokes combo are you using with the rims?

Thanks!

Thank You Patrick.Z. The internet is full of useful and useless info. I do my best to offer a fair opinion on things. We work hard for our money and want to make sure that it's spent on parts that do what they are advertised to do or sometimes even better than advertised. Stan's really delivers! Truth be told I am very hard on bike parts and that makes cycling a very expensive "hobby" (per my girlfriend) or "sport" (per my post race campfire ramblings.) Stan's No Tubes has not let me down like several other wheel companies that shall remain nameless. If you want something burlier than the Crest check out the new ARCH EX rims.
