I am just getting into mountain biking and got my first bike a little over a month ago. So far I love it. I bought somewhat of a low end bike ($600 seemed like a lot at the time) and now I want to upgrade a few things over the winter. From what I have read the wheelset seems to be the place to start, followed by the fork. My questions is, what does a typical low end wheelset weight? I'm just curious of how much rotating mass I will save. All the Felt website says is:
Rims: 29" Doublewall aluminum for disc-brake, 32h
Front Hub: Forged alloy 6-bolt disc mount 32h hub: w/ alloy quick release
Rear Hub: Forged alloy 6-bolt disc mount, 8-speed cassette 32h hub: w/ alloy quick release lever
Spokes: Stainless 14g with brass nipples
Tires: Geax AKA 2.2 wire bead w/ Shraeder valve tubes
I like the hubs Stan's sells since they can be upgraded from the QR I have now to either 15mm or 20mm in the future. Are there any other low priced hubs out there that allow you to do this?
