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

I'm thinking of getting these wheels for my Raleigh Roker Comp. Any suggestions on a cassette for this wheel and hub? I'm happy with the 11x42 range presently on the bike, but I wouldn't mind something lighter.

jjbnum3, thanks for link to that deal! I just ordered, and I'll report back on it once I have them installed.

Just a word of warning, this is a MTB wheelset, requiring XT/XTR compatible cassettes.  Ask me how I know. [wink]

After extolling the virtues of this wonderful wheelset (XTR 90290) which it is, I now find myself in deep $hite.  I have Ultegra Di2 on the bike and the road cassettes will not fit on the mtb freehub.

I could buy a XTR or XT cassette, but don't know if it will play nice with the Ultegra mech's. [frown]

If anyone here has somehow married the two (road/mtb), please let me know what my alternatives are now.

Thanks

Sorry to hear this.  I am using a shimano XT cassette, XT rear der and bar end shifters with the wheelset.   You may have luck this these adapters but I can't offer any first hand experience with them.  I hope you can find away to make it work, if not back to the shop they go.

Thanks, yeah I have educated myself after the fact.  
Looks like an XT 8000 cassette might work (11-34) but I'd like something larger.  Thanks for the reply!

I can verify this is true for the DB Haanjo Comp.  I bought an 15 to 12mm sleeve but the front wheel will not completely seat in the fork "cups" (doubt that is the right term).  The wheel will center against the sides of the cups and the 12mm through axle fits without the sleeve.  The set up fits and spins true like this including the brake rotor. 
I'm a little leery of the mm or so of space at the top of the cups but in theory there should be no weight on this part of the wheel after tightened in place. 
Once I get the tires in I'll take a short ride and see how it goes.

Took a 45 mile ride.  Wheels worked fine.

Good to hear. I’ve had the same experience with my Haanjo.

If you are still stuck, you can use the Shimano HG800 cassette.
