Ive got a 2010 stump jumper far comp and currently running the standard wheels on it (dt Swiss x420sl rims with bog standard shimano hub) and the rear wheel is reaching the end of it's life. Hub is shot, rim slightly bent so not coming true and spokes forever breaking.
So I'm looking to change it, was looking at hope pro 2 with xm719 rim. Have considered xc717 rim but if I've nacked the old rim I'm slightly worried I would with the xc717. So here are the questions, anybody gone from the spesh wheels to hope/mavics and what's the verdict? Weight noticeable of the 719 compared to current wheel compared to 717? Also only really got the budget to change the rear wheel, if the front one is fine at the moment should I leave it or should I go for a cheaper set (xt hub/mavic) and change the pair.
Any input appreciated as ever!
