I had a problem with mavic wheels also, so I went to the lbs for a "budget" build. This wheel is for my 26" commuter/utility bike. The rims are velocity cliffhangers 36 hole with dt swiss db spokes and xt hubs. The rim is very deep, I can barely get my hand pump on the presta. The rear ran me just over $225 but the wheel is bomb proof. The only problem I am having is that the wheel builder is moving so I have to scrape up the $$$ for a front and two 29ers for a fargo build by August I really like the velocity rim, I told him to pick the toughest combo and roll with it.
