wheelset

this look like a good deal on a durable and lightweight wheelset.

they are Shimano XT 9 speed hubs laced to MavicŪ XM321 Disc rims. $89 for front and $99 for rear

They are both in the mavic all mountain group. the 317 are 440grams and you can use rim brakes. The 321 are 570grams and disc only.

Personally I prefer Sun Rhyno Lites

I've had a set on my trail bike for a couple of years now and haven't even had to true them yet. (A nice trick at my size)

Rhyno Lites
