A practical and efficient wheelset, the 2011 Shimano MT15 wheelset features an angular contact bearing system also known as the cup and cone.

Since it uses angular contact bearing system, this awesome Shimano wheelset offers a longer lasting lifespan compared to other wheelsets out there, including both the semi-sealed as well as the sealed variations. This of course will be done with proper care as well as regular greasing and precise adjustments to the wheelset.

A word of caution, though, the Shimano MT15 wheelset will be more suited for riders that takes extra care of their wheelsets and not for riders who simply store their bikes when not in use.

The Shimano MT15 wheelset also sports a 25mm rim that’s bigger than most wheelsets available to the market right now as well as 28 spokes. You might want to invest in adaptors in the case where you have a bike…

The 2011 R230 Competition Road Frame, put out by Lynskey Performance Designs, is ideal for aggressive all-day rides and competitions. With its semi-compact geometry, riders enjoy excellent stand-over height and its riding position on long and demanding outings.

Do-all and multifunctional, the 2011 R230 Competition Road Frame is packed with features that make it super stiff but still comfortable. Confident handling is achieved through the outstanding stiffness derived from the oversized downtube. Stiffness and comfort are balanced by its competition-tuned rear triangle.
