Can I tempt you with some very nearly new ( used for 40 miles at most) Hope Pro2 evo Straight Pull hubs on Stans Crest rims? £200
Even if not, I’d go for hope hubs if I were you. They last forever and can easily be changed to fit 9mm QR, 15 or 20mm maxle. Stans rim are, in my experience, easier to run tubeless than 717s.
I’ve got a superstar wheelset, switch hubs with their AM490 rims. Not light by any means but not had any bother with them. Think a lot of the weight is down to rims and plain gauge spokes so swap them out and should be okay.
As above, I’m thinking used hope pro2 eco on mavic 717 or similar rim, or NEW from Merlin, same rim with shimano XT hubs.
Just want a decent xc wheelset, bit cautious about second-hand.
Any advice gratefully received.
I;ve just got the superstar switch with Pacenti TL28 rims.
only 2 rides in, but nice. Rims are a tad wider than flows and much lighter. Whole wheelset comes in at 1780g, and that’s with PG spokes.
I will be tightening the spokes very soon though, seem a little on the loose side for my liking.
