Nice. Those are MTXs, just not welded. And darn, those are expensive. I got a set of rhynolite XLs, handbuilt to XT hubs, for 180 CAD, new!

Bikeroom has the stype wheelset for 270 CAD I think.

I can't wait to take it out. The bolts holding the disc on the other wheel are stripped, so I have to find a way to get the rotor off. And, I'm going to have to walk the bike to the Gas station, because I don't have a pump .

Get a drill and drill the top cap off the bolt. Easy money

I bought a Hack saw and took them off with a Flathead screw driver. Took SOOOOOOO long! I'll get new pics up soon.
