    made up my mind

    Alright i made up my mind for rims.

    mavic 519 rims
    with aluminum spokes and brass nipples
    shimano xt hubs
    mavic mountain skewers.

    Is this all i need to custom build wheels?

    What do you think about this for my giant iguana?

    i can turn these into tubeless with stans kit right?

    Would these be good for xc racing?

    Anything is good for racing. I assume you are amateur level. 519's are a bit heavy for xc racing but at that level they should be fine. As far as I know Stans works with all rims...
