    New Mach 5.7 and Wheel Question

    Just picked up Mach 5.7 alloy and am super stoked! I've been eyeing these for a while now but could never bring myself to pull the trigger. Glad I did. It has the XT/XTR Pro build with the Tricon M1700 wheels.

    I have a question on the wheels. I've read mixed reviews on these wheels due to the proprietary spokes and such. I have a set of ZTR Arch EX wheels with CK front hub and Hope Pro 2 Evo rear hub that are about a year old I've been running on my Titus Motolite. I can convert the rear Hope hub to 142mm pretty easily, so I'm wondering if I should keep the Archs and ditch the Tricons. Just curious what others running the 5.7 have done. Thoughts?

    Really is more a matter of how you ride. Either are great if more XC/trail. I'd sell the DT's and go with Flow EX's laced to your current hubs if you are more Trail/AM oriented.
