    wheelset

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

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

    im about to head over to mtbr to read some reviews, but wanted to see if anyone here had experience with these. thanks. i'd be upgrading from alex rims and joytech hubs (what comes stock on a hardrock these days)

    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.

    hope this helps

    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
