I'm in the market for a set of wheels and some good tyres to furnish my steel hardtail which has 120mm forks (15mm maxle).
I'm looking for relatively low weight wheels certainly no more than 1700g. Cost affective and durable would be a bonus. Budget I would say is 400 quid for wheel if possible, if not let me know what I need to spend.
Type of riding is going to be a big mixture, but lots of climbing which is why i'm looking for something low weight. I guess they gonna get some bashing on the way down also. I weigh about 80kg.
what else' ah, that's it. Tubes or tubless? I have always been a tubes man, but i see tubless seems to be taking off. whats the lowdown ? are they easy to fix when i'm out on the hill?
Thanks for any pointers
