I just got an '08 5-spot and I want to get the '09 Fox Float 140mm RLC 15QR. I need a new front hub to go with it, and to save $ I think I'm going to go with the Shimano XT 15mm QR front hub (HB-M778), which is $80. The CK 20mm hub w/15mm conversion axle is too expensive for me ($180 + $55).
What kind of rims and spokes should I get?
I'm 5'11' / 210lbs and I do mostly XC / all mountain stuff. I'm neither a smooth nor really aggressive rider, more in the middle. I have a pretty new wheel with Sun RhynoLite on the front, so I have the option of using that rim and lacing up the new hub. My front brakes are Avid BB7 mechanical discs. I just spoke with Turner and they mostly run Mavic rims.
I appreciate your input.
