Should I build a new back wheel?

Since I've been riding again, and thinking about grinding since I'm building stuff in my backyard, I am more than likely going to need a new back wheel cause I'm running a 3/8ths axle with adapters. Surprisingly still haven't had any problems with it either. I feel I need something stronger for this occasion. It has been forever since I looked into buying parts but thinking about getting an eclat straight trippin or alienation delinquent rim and demolition rolls hub. Opinions?

My thoughts.

1-Ride it until it's is cooked.

-OR-

2-Get a Odyssey Hazard Lite V3 complete and be done with it.

My 3 cents.

Yea, my current bike was completely custom as of a few years ago. The rear is a odyssey race cassette laced to a proper rim. I got it put together for a different frame but decided to be cost efficient and put it with the new frame till something happened. But now that these sales are rolling around it is super tempting. The eclat pulse sounds sweet with the mirror drive capabilities but I probably wouldn't take advantage of it.



This thing, not completely the same now just a tad different

3 pawl system with 24 points of engagement comes with chromoly female axle bolts and alloy ones.
Welded rim too. I'm not like a representative for them or whatever but the price can't be beat..

Or, a much nicer wheel can be custom built, for not a whole hell of a lot more, that would be exactly what they wanted to ride.
