Need replacement MTB wheel

Hey all,

I need to replace a front wheel on this bike, 29, should be tubeless-compatible and a suitable width for Maxxis Ardent 2.4, I forget how-many-bolt disc rotor. Fork spec says 15x100 Maxle Lite, but starting to search I was getting all confused about QR vs newer 15mm seems to all be boost, couldn't tell what was what.

I'd like to keep it in the lower $100s, nobody's doing any racing over here.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried your LBS, in SD, CA i would think there would be a few. If you can't make sense of the specs needed to match up than go to a pro. Andy

Dude! Reach out to the guy at SD-MTB: https://www.pinkbike.com/u/sd-mtb/

He's in San Diego, and he very recently built me an awesome wheelset at a very fair price. I can't for the life of me remember his name, but send him a PM through Pinkbike and tell him what you're looking for. He'll flesh out the missing specs and give you a few choices of rims and hubs that will work with your axle spacing, tire width, etc.

No affiliation, just a real happy customer.
