but as far as the wheelset is concern...with that budget, i don't think you can own one of the lightest wheelset available in the market...

but that's just me...

Thank you po!
Guys, bump ko lang to, i have the same bike and question.

Currently using Giant cr70 DW aluminum. If i change it to MT15, noticeable ba yung difference? Naawa kasi ako sa trunk ko, sobrang bigat ng stock bike.

kung trunk ang issue, very minimal lang ang weight saving ng wheelset upgrade (sabihin na natin 500grams estimate) para ma feel ng trunk mo yung ginaan pero sobrang mararamdaman mo yun sa pag padyak mo ng bike.

I recently had MT-15 (sold bike for 29er), paired with ATX small frame, deore groupset, SB 8 wired tires. Sobrang gaan ipadyak even compared to a mates xtc w/ xt groupset, synchros rims and maxxis tires.

Count me in on this group. I recently upgraded my stock wheelset (coming from a Ryder Stride Built Bike) and I can really notice the weight difference. It may not be one of the lightest...but for it's price...I can say that it truly is Bang-For-The-Buck wheelset.

Already tackled Makiling Forest Park Downhill in UPLB and this wheelset took the beating! For it's price, I can say it is really worth it!

Thanks bro. And yes, mas mahal nga ang white...dapat...pero nasa galing mo sa pag tawad yan. Hehe. May binili pa kasi akong M087 na shoes, M505 na pedals, 2.1 na Maxxis Crossmarks, at Presta Tubes...not to mention palit din ako ng rotors from bolt type to center lock type.

Thanks for the concern bro. Ipapaputol ko talaga yan, naghihintay lang ng frame at cockpit na ipapalit. Mahilig ako sa Blue/White combination eh...kaso baka masira na ngayon ang color coordination dahil sa gusto kong frame.

Yung kaibigan ko ganito yung wheelset nya at after 2 months ibinenta na nya sakin ng 2.8K gagamitin ko sana pero napansin ko walang eyelet yung rim nya at yung Hub None series lang kaya napakababa ng engagement nya kaya ibinenta ko ng 3.7K at bumuo na lang ako ng sarili kong wheelset XT hubs + Alexrim XDlite + origin spokes and nipples = Php5400
high engagement pa! mabigat lang ng ilang grams sa MT15

^ MT-15 all the way sa branded ka na dapat mahirap magtiwala sa mga knock off. IMHO

I'm currently using vision SOS wheelset and thinking of upgrading to MT15. Is there a significant difference between the two? Sulit ba kung mag upgrade ako? Thanks

Accdg to some reviews MT15 hub is SLX level. What also makes the mt15 light is the fact that it has 28 and bladed spokes and centerlock. Tried it on timberland trails and still intact w/o any truing done yet.

I also got this as my 2nd wheelset with 1.5 slick tires for pavement rides, planned to switch sana as my primary kaso 1.50-2.25 lang ang recommended tire and im using 2.35.
Umabot ng 11K kasi kumuha din ako sprockets & rotors para isang salpakan lang pag nagpalit.
