A little venting on my wheelset :(
I found a sweet deal on a brand new DT 4.1d on DT Onyx wheelset yesterday on ebay for $159. Then the deal fell through today because the seller wont ship to Canada due to high shipping costs
Am I ever disappointed!!!
So, instead of going for fancy hubs, I swallowed my pride and bought a new pair of centerlock XT hubs with XT rotors for $119 on ebay. The centerlock XT hubs are surprisingly light for what they are (Front 180g Rear 369g QR: 61g).
Now, I need to build up the wheelset for cross country use (190lbs). My friend is recommending a CR18, but I'm thinking of getting DT 4.1d. Now the question is, is the DT rim overkill for my purposes, or does it worth every penny???
