Having destroyed my Specialized 420SL rims at the weekend I'm in need of a new wheelset for my Stumpy FSR.
Currently my front hub has a 9mm DT RWS bolt thru type thing - it would be nice to keep this setup as from reading reviews it reduces flex (whether its true or not I have no idea)
As I need new rims I intend to go for UST rims to remove the need for the tubeless conversion kit so am looking at Mavic XM819s or similiar.
From looking around the options seem to be:
- Superstar wheelset on switch evo hubs - mixed reviews over build quality
- Mavic Crosstrails (I know where I can get a set for £270)
- Hope Hoops
- Getting my LBS to build my existing specialized hubs with new rims.
I'm not the lightest rider (14 stone) and do a mixture of cross country and trail centres (Coed-y-Brenin, Cwm Carn etc).
Recommendations / advice please
