Is this wheel setup good?

I'm getting a new pair of wheels, and was curious what you guys might have to say about the Mosh Freedom front hub and Justice cassette. I don't ride too hard, but enough to where I'm close to destroying the crap stock rims and hubs I've got now. This is what I was thinking of doing:

Front:
Mosh Freedom hub 36 spoke
Primo14G spokes
Odyssey 7-KA rim

Rear:
Mosh Justice cassette 36 spoke
Primo 14G spokes
Odyssey 7-KA rim

Is this crap? Adequate? Suggestions are welcome, only real requirement is 14mm axles front and back.

The rims are great, the hub are okay, and the spokes are pretty terrible. Buy some DT spokes and you will never destroy another rim.

Because thats the wheel that takes abuse?

Also, I had tuck no-handers dialed before 180's.

Cool, I'll look into the spokes man. Glad to hear the hub choice isn't awful, as I think those will be perfect for my needs.
