I can tell you that the Sun Ringle MTX 33 would be WAY overkill for your needs, same with the Mavic EX729, as well as the Alex Supra BH, those three are DH/FR rims. Also can't recommend Surly Hubs and have a clear conscience about it, worst hubs I have ever used. I'm using the mtx 33 for a front rim and it's mated to a surly hub, it's been the only trouble free of the two hubs, I've since built up a rhynolite, dmr revolver as a rear wheel, but will be exchanging the rhyno lite.

You would probably benefit a build around these parameters.

Mavic Ex721 or Sun Rhyno Lite laced to a shimano XT hub. 36 hole, 3 cross.
Appreciate the old bikes more than the new.
