I'll see what the rim is tommorow, but if given the opportunity, I will pick it up tommorow as well. When googled the hub was a good 60 bucks, and the skewer was over 20. So, that right there, is good. And I want a disc brake so this seems like a good choice.

Onyx is DT's budget line. No experience with it here, though.

Eh, still prolly better than the bontrager rim/shimano parallax 100 or something hub that came on my specialized when purchased used. It had a weinman rim originally, wonder what happened to it. Also, currently non disc. Since the tag on the dt wheel, used, is $90 and since im a friend they're going to 50, well 90 is higher than the bontrager one cost originally new probably.

It probably won't be superlight, but I don't think you'll have any breakage issues.

I've got a set of DT Onyx/Mavic 321D and they've held up well for several years.

Onyx hubs work just fine.

My rear Onyx freehub seized after I left it sitting full of salty water for 8 months. Running smooth again now.

If you don't do anything that dumb, I foresee no issues.

Well my main question was the cost, if it is good. Heard front wheels run over 150, thats all I could find. Also think its a custom wheel as I couldn't find anything about wtb/dt swiss combos. The lbs guy said it looks like it barely has 10 miles. I belive that. Black rim, no scratches, clean on/in the hub. QR is shiny. Heres some photos:






Note the magura disc, what do you think the rotor cost?
