    Sun SOS or Pure XCR Wheelset?

    I am looking to buy a new wheelset to upgrade my vbrakes to disc brakes from bicycle wheel warehouse...are Sun and Pure reputable companies? They are both on sale and I think the white rims would look great on my 2009 Rockhopper:




    Here are the specs for the Sun SOS: http://www.bicyclewheelwarehouse.com...&productId=119



    Here are the specs for the Pure XCR: http://www.bicyclewheelwarehouse.com...&productId=130


    Thoughts?

    White wheels would look sick. Toss in some Hayes Stroker Trails in white and you'd be big city pimpin!!!!!!

    I don't know a ton about the Pure wheels. I know that Sun makes solid stuff. The suns are also a bit heavier, beefier wheels.
    What type of riding do you do? And are you a large person like myself? If so I'd say get the SOS's.
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.

    Just bought the Sun SOS due to the fact they are a little more durable. I'll post pics when I get them!
