    People will be able to give you better recommendations for what to get if you tell them what your planning on using the wheelset for. What bike, what type of riding?

    It does have to be said I’ve got a nice set of wheels for sale, but they have a 15mm front hub….

    £150 is the going rate for used Hope Pro 2 with decent rims, and is the default/most popular choice. Always a few sets in the classifieds, theres some there with mavic 321 rims and a price drop at the moment (not the seller).

    Pro2s are adaptable to every axle/dropout standard, but can suffer snapped axles on 12mm as the axle thickness is a bit marginal, worsened by using a maxle lite which is tapered and offers no support where the bearing sits. The newer Pro 2 Evo solves this but is more expensive.

    Our bikes all have Hope hubs, either Pro 2s or older XCs (actually better hubs but only take 9mm).

    2 people have missed the joke. 🙄 Oh well, good try.

    That’s because you were too busy writing adverts for the stuff you sell 😛

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I don’t understand what you mean by joke.

    Peter Poddy: I could be interested. Would you accept a deposit?

    I’m a bit skint at the moment as I’m building a building for my bikes and the bricklayer is having a laugh.
