    Cheap wheel set for street/rail trail

    Hey guys I'm looking for a cheap wheel set that will hold my 290# just for riding around on the streets and gravel rail trail here in PA. I hate swapping out my tires every time I just want to hit the streets after work. I ride a Trek Stache 7 with a 15mm front and 142x12mm rear axle. Im not looking for a road race type wheel, but a wheel set i can put and thinner xc tire on. If it matters I run 203/180mm six bolt rotor I was planning on getting a 2nd set of rotors for the new wheel set. Thanks in advance. Any suggestions/advised is welcome.

    You're going to have a hard time finding an inexpensive wheel set with that hub combo. Jensonusa has a couple that use Centerlock discs in the $200-$400 range. You could also have a set built by Universal Cycle, but you are still going to be in the upper end of $400.
