    Allow myself to introduce, ah, myself

    Hey folks. My name is Tom and I work at Unreal Cycles. We sponsor this forum. Being that we are fairly new to everybody here and that we have some products that are new to the U.S., I thought I would say hi and let the members know that if they have any questions about us or the items we carry, they can post them up here and I'll try to answer them as best I can. I check the forum a few times a day and will do my best to respond to any questions. Thanks again and cheers.

    P.S. Moderators, if this is falling into the SPAM category, feel free to remove it. We don't want to be shady.

    Same thing with Explorer.

    I can search for the website and get it that way. Good stuff. The wheels look nice.

    Aaaaaah!

    Sometimes computers will be the death of me. I just noticed the busted link right after the web/marketing guy left for the weekend.

    Leo XR 300 Wheelset, is this one of those too good to be true deals? 1490 g at 165$ Someone on here posted a saying, "cheap, light, strong......pick two". "pay for what you get". I'm looking to replace my heavy as hell, slow but reliable open pro rims with some light, dependable rims. Is there a personal weight limit on these hoops? Nothing worst than being stuck on the side of the road waiting for your old lady to come pick you up. I guess what i'm asking for is a little history and some assurance about your products. I'm fairly new to the biking community.

    Leo Wheels

    Here's the scoop on Leo. They are a Taiwanese made wheel that was destined for Europe. They are made in the same factory as a LOT of bigger name brand wheels. The order was cancelled after the wheels were made and the factory cut us a deal to get them out of their warehouse. I'm over 190 and these wheels have been great this summer. I split a lot of my riding between the XR300's and the all carbon QO21's. Both are holding up great.

    Hubs and rims

    One suggestion... Maybe offer hubs and rims? Lots of people who frequent this forum love to build their own wheels. Looks like you might have some good suppliers for this kind of stuff.

    Spokes too!

    May I know from which company you got these wheels?

    Leo Factory

    I don't know the name. We bought them once they had landed on the US shores, not from the factory. When I started at Unreal Cycles in May, the history of the wheels as it was told to me is what I reported in the earlier post. I never thought to ask of the actual name of the producing factory.

    XR 300 Wheels

    I picked up a pair of those Leo XR300 wheels and will be posting some kind of mini review once I receive them and have a ride or two.

    Unoveloce already bought a pair of the carbon ones (which appear to have the same hubs and spoke configuration). That, and the very low price were the deciding factors for me. He provided a review and some pics here:

    Warranty

    All the wheels we carry including Leo are covered for at least one year from manufacturers defects, which is the industry standard. While we don't have a formal crash replacement program in place, we have never had a problem helping out our customers that crit curb a wheel.

    Then, could you please post the photos of these "carbon clincher" wheels? I shall appreciate this.

    Here's a pic from another post (mine!)

    I'm still liking them quite a bit. I like the 38mm depth. Too deep a rim looks funny on my bike ATMO. If I had a big tubed carbon rig, then it would look better. Not that I'd turn a free pair down! I did find out that they aren't American Classic hubs afterall. They look amazingly close, but the rear drive mechanism is different. Oh well, at the price I paid, they still are a great deal! Oh yeah, they still are true, smooth, and quiet. No regrets, except for when I bought mine there was no free wheel bag offer like now. Oh well, no biggie.

    My XR-300s are on the way. They'll probably be here by Wed-Thu so I'll post some reviews and info after I ride them during the weekend.

    XR300s

    Bought a set a couple weeks ago. Shipped quick. Arrived true. Weight with the supplied skewers rim strips was 1520g for the set. I've only put about 100 miles on them so far, so I can't say a whole lot other than that they work. They are definitely comparable in finish and performance to my Weyless Korsos while being 200+ grams lighter and cheaper as well. I weigh 170#, FWIW.

    They are here!

    I was reading on RBR last weekend and found this post about unreal cycles and checked out their site. I too thought the XR 300 wheelset was one of those to good to be true deals. However I called on monday morning and yesterday I had a package at my doorstep! These wheels are 1516 with rim stips and skewers. Wheels are also true. I will give some feedback in a day or so after my first ride. But for 189.00 shipped how could anybody go wrong? Not even Neuvations can compete with the weight/price combo on these. They have a full year waranty per their website like most wheelsets and cust. service seems good so far IMHO.

    I'd have to say that $185 shipped for ~1500g wheels is ridiculous. Like others said, almost too good to be true. Anybody have some feedback on these? I'm a heavier rider as well (195lbs) and am interested in how the wheel stiffness is compared to some other wheels.
