    New Wheelset

    So I'm thinking that I'd like to pick up a new disc specific wheelset, but I really have no idea where to start looking. I've read some reviews, but I'm not actually sure exactly what I want or need, so it hasn't been all that much.


    -I ride mostly XC, possibly getting a little more aggressive.
    -Fairly concerned about weight.
    -I'm a girl, I weigh like 140ish.
    -And a college student, so not overflowing with cash.

    So... any ideas?

    Also, would I be better off posting in the wheel/tire forum?

    Sun Ringle and Mavic are good popular brands. You wont get real light wheelsets for cheap unless it's one of those crazy deals. As a referance DT Swiss 240S / Mavic 819 Disc Wheels
    are going for $263 and $369 at and they weigh 844g up front and 953g out back. they also have Shimano Deore Disc/Rhyno Lite Wheelset for 89 dollars and weigh 1150g in front and 1320 in back. I would say spend as much as you're comfortable spending on the wheelsets because they are a big part of the overall bike weight and feel.
