Chris King ISO w/ Mavic XM819? best place to buy?
I am looking for a new disc wheelset for my Trek Fuel EX9...would like to try tubeless, and thought this combo looked good..any thoughts? Coorado Cyclist has them for about $630, although they have a promo code box...but I can't seem to find any codes. Anywhere else I should check? Thanks

You will be hard pressed to find new King stuff at any discount, anywhere. It may be a good opportunity to go through your LBS and have them build the wheels - you will foster good will and probably get a lifetime true out of the deal.
I've purchased and ridden CC built wheels in the past - no complaints.

I just got that exact wheelset built last month. You have great taste BTW.
Don't expect a deal on those. But you can enhance the purchase by going with a wheel builder who has a sterling reputation for wheel building and who builds lots and lots of wheels.
I chose Excel Sports in Boulder to build mine.

I tried the Build-a-wheel thing over at Speedgoat and got quoted $771.
I have heard great things about Mountain High Cyclery. A buddy of mine bought his Turner 5-Spot from them and the Turner guys over at MTBR.com can't stop raving about service, quality and prices.
