    GT Karakoram 3.0 Aftermarket Wheelsets Under $300

    Warped/Bent my Front Wheel on my Karakoram after less than 50 miles of riding... Haven't done any Cool and Tough trail shredding outside of casual 3 ft drops on downhill singletrack. Probably not going to be warranteed by Performance Bike.

    Anyone have any recommendations on some economical wheelsets that would compatible with a 2013 karakoram 3.0 that would run me under $300 for both??

    Price match the hub at Treefort.

    Bent a front wheel on a karakorum 3.0. I think Ive seen this before somewhere. Possibly first hand experience at this subject. Small turn and had a front tire wash out.

    I do agree on the Arch EX's. Solid rim that can withstand anything my fat self can throw at it.
    Slightly faster than a speeding snail.
