    Mavic EX729's unavail - nearest match?

    I've been running Mavic D321s on my Yeti DH9, but my LBS can't get the newer EX729 till end of May (Mavic shipping dates?). I need something sooner for a replacement rear rim, so was wondering what others thought of the following instead of the Mavic 321/729 for a DH rear rim? I'm more interested in durability and raceability than weight.

    Arrow DHX - "26
    Intense Mag 30 - "26

    Thanks

    There are still D321 around, for example Cambria has them on sale for $69, 36 hole only.

    Looked back thru archived discussions and decided on the Arrow DHX for now -- We'll see how it holds up for a race season.

    Go-ride.com has Mavic D729s in stock. We have to list the price at $95, but we throw in free spokes or if you ask we'll knock $20 off the rim price.
