Spinergy Rev X wheel question(4 posts)

Spinergy Rev X wheel questionmaximum15

Found a used set for a good price. Can you help me determine what year they were made? Is there a way to tell from the serial number? This set has no stickers and only has Spinergy written on the wheel one time, rather than two times at 180 degrees. Does that help date them?
have you tried carbon dating them?IAmtnbikr

I thought they all had more than the single decal. I had a set of '98's that were covered with them. Someone here ought to know for sure though. Look them over closely, mine eventually developed cracks around the rivets on a front blade.

In 1997 Spinergy changed the hub design a little bit; pre-1997, the outside of the hub was flush with the spokes, and the axle protruded from there. Post-1997, the outside of the hub was about 1cm beyond the spokes. And the earliest iterations (1994-1995) had a groove cut in the center of the hub (1cm wide, ~5mm deep).
Thanks, excellent information. (nm)maximum15
