    I got a set of new wheels. CK 20mm in the front and the CK full Heavy Duty Steel version in the rear with Funn Bolts. The funn bolts are really nice on the Army instead of the QR. I was getting the creeps of the QRs as they sometimes came loose on DH runs :eek:

    Well...I think it looks ok...kept heavy rims on since I ride like a hack :o:

    I know the hubs do not get justice in the pic, but when I tried to take some close ups of the hubs the pictures became quite lousy.....due to my lousy camera...therefore - no good close ups worth posting.....but the color is PEWTER and I love them !

    Hi Roger

    It is fuuny you say it because after putting the bike together I thought the same...the wheels looked incomplete.

    Yes- the Avy dealer is super nice I can only be recommended ! Hope you get your stuff soon.

    No, I cant go this weekend...I am sitting and correcting stuff in my Master thesis, soI have to wait....but I am really looking forward to go racing in Vanga on my new wheels. By the way...will you be racing Sunday ?

    see U

    The Pewter looks Very Noice.

    I bet with that build your bike lasts another 4 or 5 years. How long have you had it?

    Yes - I think the Funn Bolt system is great for bikes which were made for QR ! Which color hubs did you choose?

    behind you with a snap pop
    Are the Funn bolts similar to the Sun Swoopy Bolt kit?
    I just got that for my trail bike. It is as stiff as a thru axle.
    The bolts thread into the hub, and the hub is shaped like a D-axle,
    so it is all held in place. It works great.
