I picked up a pair of these wheels for my Hannjo EXP.  Price is insane!  I have them mounted up now and look forward to riding them this weekend.

I used the PDXTI TA adapter carbon sleeve to convert the 15mm TA to a 12mm TA of the Haanjo fork.

Early xmas for me!

So, what do you think of the wheelset?  My only issue is there is no flexibility in axle combinations.

So far so good. Lighter weight saved me about half a pound. They feel smooth and quiet if that makes any sense. I appreciate the quiet free hub. They spin up quickly and feel stiff enough for my needs. Mounting the Terene Elwood’s was a challenge. Not sure if that is due to tire or rim tho.

The lack of axle swap options could be an issue but for me these are the only 650b bike I have so not much of a consideration.

Cheers

Thanks!  What tires and width are you running?  Howz the clearance?  I can clear 700c Gravel King 43, but it's near the max clearance, so with the added rim width, I'm not sure.

The Elwood's are 47mm. Clearance up front is the tightest. It's ok, the bike came with Schwable 2.1s which is about the max.

Be careful here folks. Not all 12mm forks mesh with 15mm (even with reducing sleeve) hubs. 12mm hub axle OD is 19mm, 15mm hub axle OD is 21mm

Puddle, any more rides on the M9020's?  I know there is also the M9000's that are i19 vs the i24, and having a hard time finding enough info to make an informed decision.  It may be that one is too narrow and one is too wide...[wink]

Still very positive on the wheelset, especially at the price.  I don't see how to get a higher quality wheelset for 399.  If I were spending full retail I would have gone in a different direction but I'm not interested in spending that kind of $$$$.

As for the width I went with 24's for a couple of reasons. 35c is probably the narrowest tire I'd conceive putting on my bike and I can also repurpose these for MTB use on other bikes.

cheers

So are these being blown out because of the Boost standard? And also that it’s really not possible to adapt centerlock wheels with Boostinator kits (at least for the rear). Good deal for mountain bikes still on the “old” standard and for road bikes catching up to thru axles...

Yes I believe a redesign is underway for boost. My other bikes are older, most still rolling on 135qr #shame
