Stans Arch Deal on Superstar Now

Postby mcnultycop » Sat Oct 06, 2012 18:44 pm

For £165 I nearly got a set, but I think I need the Flow rims for my weight/riding, and I think the Arch sit in-between the Crest and Flow. (And I want red hubs to make me go faster)

Bargain though, if anyone is after some wheels.

Bargain! Would have got those but already got the £200 Flows/Switch Evo deal

Are these a better deal than the £200 Crests? Looking for a new set of wheels, and would really like the Arch EX's, but the older Arches are over £100 cheaper, hence why I was drawn to the Crests!

They come with plain gauge spokes - I'd spend the extra and get the Crest deal.

Still about £80 cheaper than the custom build of the same. If you want something lighter & narrower than the Flows it's not a bad deal...but yeah the spokes might swing me towards the Crests.

But like I say have a spanking set of balck Flows on Stealth Switch EVO's here so not bothered :D
