Hello all, I'm new to the MTB world and I'm looking for some good backup (or primary) rims for my bike. I'm eyeing up some Mavic X223 rims made for my Cannondale "lefty" setup but before I bid (yep, it's on Ebay) I wanted to know what was a better investment (or what would last the longest). Good rims or really good tires?
Like I said, I'm new and I'm sure it comes down to a matter of opinion, but I'll be doing a lot of trail riding (nothing too extreme) and on some paved paths.
So if that helps matters any...I'm also not afraid to pay for quality, I'm not cheap so name all the "Name Brands"!
Thanks in advance for any help you can give...
