    They can be picked up for 250 quid or thereabouts, weight is pretty decent at circa 1600g, quality hubs, tubeless. The only fly in the ointment is they’re not ‘wide’.

    Every custom build I look into comes out more expensive and heavier.

    Any thoughts?

    What about superstar, they have under 1500 for under 200.

    I have a set and think they are excellent. I have run them tubeless for the last 3-4 years and only had to true them a couple of times. Even then it was because they had been used cross country and given a battering. Tightened up fine and we are off again. Not a bling as some others, but just work.

    Owner here an very pleased with them.
    Best VFM out there.
    If you can find Campy Zondas on special then they are worth a look.

    if you want unreliable hubs with lousy bearings. A couple we know had them on their sunday best pride-and-joys, his constantly needed adjustment (why do cartidge bearings need a preload collar?!), hers collapsed. Twice. Consistent with all the much-reported problems with the MTB hubs (Havens/Havocs).

    I have some 6700s and cant fault them, but if I was buying again I’d be tempted to try some chinese carbon.

    I’ve just ordered some Ultegra on Open Pro rims from Rose bikes for £200. Sick of the factory built low spoke wheels, they just aren’t durable. Proper wheels ahoy!

    the most popular company (from here, MTBR, bikeradar etc forums) seems to be

    or search alibaba/aliexpress and choose from hundreds of permutations.
