    All Mountain Carbon Wheels a Fantasy?

    Can I get some carbon wheels that are suited for AM use (in Phoenix)?

    Don't need the WW ones, need ones that will last.

    Oh, and cheap is good too

    Not sure about cheap and "will last", but you can definitely get AM carbon wheels. ENVE has AM wheels, but I suspect their XC wheels would also suit you. They're tough as nails! I love mine.

    But they're not cheap.

    If you get the cheap ones, they may last, they may not... jury's still out.

    DT Swiss EXC400 rims and build your own? When I built a set of XRC330s, I learned a bit about how DT builds their rims. At the spoke holes, there is a metallic nipple bed so you won't stress and potentially delam the rim when you start tensioning. I was also able to tubeless the XRC330s w/ Stan's tubeless strip...
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    I've been riding EXC 400 rims for over three year and love them! The OP, however, appears to be looking for 29er rims, and as you know the DT S carbon rims are 26ers.

    I picked up the 2013 Reynolds 29er wheels for just under $1,600. Wider than the Enve xc 29ers and good value. The proprietary hub has held up well and Reynolds is not new to the hub game. High quality spokes on them as well.

    I am a bit concerned about the 24 spoke count, only time will tell how durable that ends up being.

    PM me if you want to know where to get them at that price.

    Even better if you can pick up 2012's for $995; they're still out there. 24 spokes are holding up well under my 180 pound ass...
