    Need a new wheelset (need advice)

    Hey guys, I recently trashed my wheelset on my Stumpy and I'm looking for a new set but have some questions. I was looking into something around $400ish for the set and found these from Azonic. The reviews are pretty good which leads me to them but I kinda want a wheel expert's opinion lol. Or maybe some alternate options if possible? I tend to ride nothing crazy as to Long Island being flat lol but I want a strong wheel that will hold up. I appreciate any info added here .

    Id go with a set of Roval Control Trail AL or EL. The EL come with nice DT240 hub internals and can be found at good prices. They will convert to any axle standard too so you can use them on you 10x135 bike and then convert them to work with a newer 12x142 frame if you ever upgrade.

    Mavic Crossmax ST or even Crosstrail would also be a great choice. You can find last years models for under $500 and they will be a TON lighter than the Azonic wheels.

    The Crosstrail wheels would be a real good choice. You should be able to find a set for the price range you were trying to stay at, tubeless ready out of the box and several HUNDRED grams lighter than the wheels you mentioned.
