Interbike 2012: Stan’s NoTubes Adding XX1 Freehub Bodies, 650B Rims & Medalist Wheels
Stan’s NoTubes is giving us one more option for SRAM’s new XX1 11-speed group. Compatible freehub bodies are coming in January for aftermarket, probably shipping to distributors in December. Freehub upgrade parts should be around $70, but that’s not set in stone.
Crest, Arch and Flow EX rims adm complete wheels are all available in 650B in October. The new Medalist is the top of the line 650B wheelset, comparable to the Podium (26″) and Race Gold (29″) and only available as complete wheels. Claimed weight is 1335g and retail is $950. Rim width is 21.3 inside, 24.2mm outside. Front hub is QR or 15mm thru axle, rear is QR or 12×135/142 thru axle convertible. Available in November.
