DMR DV/Supergun/Revolver review£210.00

This isn't a ready-made wheelset, but it's well worth building up DMR's hubs and rims together. The broad 33mm DV rims work with either disc or V-brakes, hence the name DV, and they have a deep double-walled construction and eyelets.

This isn't a ready-made wheelset, but it's well worth building up DMR's hubs and rims together.

The broad 33mm DV rims work with either disc or V-brakes, hence the name DV, and they have a deep double-walled construction and eyelets so they can handle hard slams. They're available with 32 or 36 spokes and in 24 or 26in sizes, although they're heavy whichever version you buy.

The hubs have tough forged bodies with double sealing and they come with a two-year guarantee. The front hub is a Supergun model with a 20mm axle (non interchangeable) and the rear Revolver hub can have a quick-release or bolted axle. The freehubs pick up super quick, and with the hubs costing just £49.95 each, these wheels are superb value.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
