I'm considering having a set of Pacenti TL28 26er rims built up with a Hadley rear 10mm TA and Hope Pro II 20mm front hub. The hubs are currently built on a set of XM819s. I read an awesome review of this setup but with a Hadley front hub. Read it at http://www.bike198.com/review-pacent...26er-mountain/ . However, I can't seem to find any other reviews and I'm concerned about the long term durability. I weigh in at around 170 lbs. all geared up. Most of my riding is technical XC with lots of rocks, roots and logs. I don't drop anything of 3 ft. or so, and rarely that. I'd love to hear from anyone who's riding this rim but welcome educated speculation from anyone. By my calculations I'd be dropping about a 1/2 lb. of rotational weight.
