    New wheels for '09 Altitude ??

    My winter rebuild continues...
    Having switched to DeVille forks with a 20mm axle, I'm looking to get a new pair of wheels built. I have a new pair of Stans Flow EX rims and I'm thinking about using some Shimano Zee hubs.
    Will a 135x10 thru axle be OK instead of a normal QR set up ??
    I weigh 215 lbs in full kit but I'm not a super aggressive rider.
    Any thoughts or help ?
    Cheers, Rob.

    A DT Swiss RWS 10mm rear axle helps stiffen up the rear end quite a bit and still makes it easy to get the wheel off without tools.

    Went with Hope Pro Evo 2 40T rear and Hope Pro Evo 2 20mm front in the end. There's not enough feedback about the ZEE hubs yet, although they seem very similar to SLX and XT hubs, which don't get good reviews for the rear anyway...
