    Looking for it all: more specifically, an inexpensive, strong tubeless rear wheelset

    I've heard rumors of builders in the valley who can put together a mean UST AM wheelset on the cheap and am looking to get in on the action. Does anyone have any contacts?

    That said, if anyone has a nice tubeless rear or a reliably ghetto-able rear wheelset (perhaps with a Kenda 2.25 to 2.3 tire) they are looking to unload for a merciful price I would be an eligable suitor of such an item...

    My bad, I think my fingers included the word 'light' by habit, I don't care about weight.

    You look on eBay yet?

    But, if you're interested in carbon:

    carbon mountain bike rim-mountain bike rim,mountain rims,mtb rim,mtb rims,carbon mtb rim Light-Bicycle

    About $165 each for a bare rim, or roughly $570 for a pair as complete wheels. They seem to get good reviews on the forum here.

    I have Mavic 819's front and/or rear. $150 for rear or $250/set. True UST is the only way to go. Love these wheels.

    If you don't care about weight then it's the Azonic Outlaws. I'm rocking them on my ride and they get plenty of abuse. still rolling strong and straight.

    Yep, Gorilla tape. I've had a WTB Prowler & Dissent, both wire bead, and now a Specialized Butcher SX on front and rear. The rear Butcher just replaced a Clutch SX. Very little problems getting them to seal.
