There are a plethora of expensive 26" XC wheels out there to choose from. I'd like to get some advice from those that have forked over some cash for new wheels to upgrade from stock to see what their thoughts are.
Review what you have here so we can get a good list going for those that want to upgrade.
My 2006 Trek Fuel Ex8 came with great Bontrager tubeless compatible wheels. I'm looking to turn those into road-ish/slicks and get a new lighter, stronger set for trails.
I'd like to see why my options are for improving on these from budget greatness to over-the-top wheelsets.
I never shopped for a wheelset like this so edumacate me
