Default Speedmind Foams

Hello people,

Has anybody here run the 26mm speedmind foams, and if so what did you think of them? Good stiff wheel? Glued well?

I'd probably get 40/37 or 40/40.

Thanks.

Also how do the ellegi foams measure up? Better or worse then the speedminds?

Thanks anyway for looking.

It's probably not gonna do you much use now, but I found Speedmind foams to work quite well. I did have one set come slightly unglued but nothing major. They were very consistent and at my local shop are much cheaper than Jaco's or TRC's.

They are definitely cheaper. Thats why I like them. My only complaint is that the hole on the rim is too small for fitting on american hubs, so you have to use a body reamer or a 5/32 drill bit to get the wheel onto the TC3, XXXs, etc.

Other than that, theyre great. The combo of the multi (45/48) front and 40 rear, in 28 mm, is killer for carpet, even though the multi costs a bit more.

Its fun to see the Ontario guys responding to this one!

Speedmind is run by some great people wich is reflected in the products they carry.
