I'm trying to figure out how I'm gonna replace my worn-out downhill wheelset for the upcoming season. I am planning on building the wheelset myself but am unsure what rims would work best for me. I weigh around 210lbs and ride aggressively so I am looking for something strong that will hold up. I have narrowed my rims down to the SunRingle MTX33's, the Alex DX32 or Alex Supra's. Does anyone have any suggestions??
Also, would it be silly to pair up a pair up one of these rims with Shimano Deore 525 hubs? I feel the Shimano hubs hold up well even for the abusive downhill riding. These hubs came with the bike and have worked great for 3 seasons. They will definitely help keep the cost down. Should I be looking at different hubs to lace the rims to do you think?
Thanks for any suggestions!
