Quality 29er Wheels at a decent price?

Last year, I posted about 29er wheels because I wanted something lighter -- and got very few responses. This year, I need to find some decent 29er disc-compatible wheels at a decent price. (I've got the stock Bontrager wheels, the front rim is wrecked, and rebuilding the wheel would cost more than the wheel is worth.)

Any ideas for great 29er disc-ready wheels at a great price? The best I have found is Mavic C29ssmax for $775.00. I would like to knock $300 off of that, if possible.

If great price = $475-550, then you have a bunch of options


Hope Pro II hubs x any rims you want (stans 355's for light)
White Industries M16 hubs x any rims you want (stans 355's for light)

Go to Notubes, they have a WTB x 355 29er wheelset for 475 thats pretty light.

I would decide on what type of hubs and rims you want and let someone build up a custom wheelset for you. Call up Mike Garcia at Odds and Endos and tell him your budget and what you want. Or try lacemine29.com
