    New wheel buildup for a XC hammerhead

    So I broke two spokes on my Stumpjumper FSR on my last ride and have decided to spend George W.'s tax break on a spare wheelset. The current wheelset is the stock DT Swiss for Specialized wheelset, and they are light and relatively strong enough for this heavyweight rider. My riding is (abusive) XC and all mountain.

    Beyond the Spinergy Xyclone wheelset, what other wheels would you recommend? I love this bike so price is not an option, strength and possibly lightweight is important. This is a disc, 9 speed setup, not used for racing.

    Thanks!

    Your colourfool use of verbage is why I keep coming here.

    So you broke 2 spokes on one ride and your wheel is relatively strong enough...I'd say step it up a notch.
    If price is not an option then you are gonna have a rough go of it b/c free wheels usually suck!
    (incidentally, doesn't this look like he's beating a donkey's nutz--> )



    I like the DT rim. I'd go with better hubs...yours relatively suck. Try some Hope Pro II's or King's with DT XR4.2d rims and some Alpine III spokes.
