I've been lurking for a couple months as Iíve ramped up my riding. Just bent my rim (was able to true it, but it probably won't last), so that got me thinking about a long-term upgrade Ė one thatíll outlast my current bike.
About my situation:
I ride a 2012 Redline Monocog, so itís a 29er with no suspension. Itís all stock with the exception of my brakes, which are Clarks M2 disc brakes. I am 6í3Ē and 230 lbs (goal weight is 200, and Iím down from 262). Iím riding in North Central Florida, so itís pretty flat with a lot of roots and sugar sand.
I'm looking to build something along the lines of the following with a $500 budget with room:
- Rims: Stanís Notubes Flow Ex ZTR 29er 32H (I'
- Hubs: Hope Pro 2 Evo 32H 15mm hubs with 9mm conversions
- Spokes: Wheelsmith double butted
- Nipples: Brass
- Tires: Maxxis Ardent 2.4 (tubeless)
Any advice would be appreciated. This will be my first time building wheels, but I'm pretty mechanically inclined and a glutton for punishment (which is why I ride a no-sus, SS 29er!).
