However, there is the bothersome reality of wheelset cost, which limits most of us to a single wheelset and swapping tires throughout the year. What we need and what Mercury Wheels know are affordable alloy rims like the MI Disc Brake set. The price brings into reason using the M1 as a stable and truly enjoyable back-up set to your primary racing set, or going in for two sets and wrapping one with gravel/cx knobs and the other with slick tires for the road. Regardless of how you see the M1’s usefulness, the lightweight yet durable alloy wheelset makes for an ideal training companion whether slaying winter base-miles month after month or throwing down aggressive single track sessions in late-summer prep for cyclocross season.
With an internal width of 20mm, Mercury encourages us to explore more tire options to well…explore more. The durable alloy body provided a proven approach to longevity and performance in a wheelset, and paired with Sapim spokes, maintenance is just a shop away. Solid and reliable Mercury hubs center the M1 for year-round performance, without high maintenance costs.
