I recently taco'd the front rim on my K2 and through great K2 customer service, am getting a replacement wheel at a very reduced cost.
Anyway - because I'm unskilled at the AM/trail thing still, I also decided to upgrade to some burly Mavic XM321s.
My plan is to throw on some Spec'd 1.95 Armadillo tires on the OEM Sun DS2+XCs and install my WTB ExiWolfs on the Mavic rims. I bought two more rotors and a SRAM PG991 rear cassette for the new Mavic. Endstate I'll have the Suns with 1.95 tires and the OEM SRAM PG950 cassette for road rides and the Mavics with the PG991 for trail rides.
My goal was quick swaps (bought Hope skewers for my new Mavic's as well). Will I have an issue with the chain line by swapping rear wheels? My SRAM X-9 rear D shifts so well - it's robotic like, just quick, mechanical shifts and I don't want to screw anything up.
I don't know much about chain line or other impacts of what I want to do.
I did buy one of the Nashbar steel MTB frames and will eventually build that with the Sun rims and Spec'd tires leaving the Mavics and PG991 so this may only be a 3-4 month period where I swap wheel sets.
