Not an expert on this at all!! I have a Trek 8000 2009 with DT Swiss 420 Sl's fitted, bit battered up and a little on the heavy side, just over 2kg. I am wanting to change the wheels for something a bit smarter & lighter around the 1,500 - 1,600g mark if possible.
(Birthday coming up!) Budget absolute max £350.....
I want them for XC and general trail riding, Chilterns, Cannock, Trail centres in wales like Afan etc....
My weight is 78Kg. I was looking at Hope Pro 3 SP-xc3, they would save me over 500g, but a few reviews talk about bent wheels & broken spokes after little use etc... I don't want to be worying the whole time about breaking them. Anyone on here got any feedback on them as they are quite a good weight?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
