Building a New Wheelset
« on: June 05, 2009, 09:23:24 AM »
Got a new 29er and I'm gonna bust out and buy a nice wheelset.  I've decided on the Hubs.  I'm going with the Chris King stainless steel rear hub and going with a Hope infront.  What are good hoops to put on? Must Be .......lightweight.......tubeless......must be extremely durable!

Just dropped the parts for my front wheel today with the only person I trust with a wheel build (thanks Ted!)
 
Stans Arch 29er FTW!

How much do you weigh? I personally would consider something other than arches if you weigh for than 230.  I run them now and love them, but think I am at pushing the weight limit on them, especially on drops that G out on the bottom.

What spokes & nipples are you going with?
