  • Want to be able to run 2.1-2.5 Tires

I've decided so far on the following:
  • White Industries Disc Hubs
  • DT Competition Butted Spokes in Black
  • Silver Brass Nipples

  • Mavic 717 Disc (395g)
  • DT Swiss XR 4.2D Disc Rim (400g)
  • Mavic 719 Disc (460g)
  • Syncros DP25 (514g)

Can the 717 Disc's or DT Swiss' handle a larger tire?

Your recommendation?
They could all handle larger tires, but I'd stick with a 2.3 or so for your rigid SS. You're a light lil guy so you won't need burly wheels, but I've been extremely happy with my Hope Pro II / EX5.1d / DT Comp setup. Best set I've ever had.

So my recommendation is the DT XR 4.2D setup.
