I bought an M400 (8-speed) new in '99 to use as a Hybrid to get to the Central Park tennis courts. So it has been barely used, and since moving to NJ, it's been used even less!
Now that my kids are starting to ride bikes, I would like to upgrade the wheels on the M400, and keep my Avid V brakeset. Seems all 26" MTB wheels are Disc brake only? Does it make more sense to upgrade to Disc brakes, or can I find a reasonable set of non-disc rims?
The stock Weinmann rims and cheap hubs weigh a ton, and are not true anymore, which is why I'd like the beautiful M400 frame to have better wheels without spending too much.
What are my options?
