    Wheelset question...

    Im on a 2006 Turner RFX with 5.5 rockers and use it as a "fat guy trailbike" (Im 6'1, 215lbs). I need a new wheelset and plan on using some of my tax returns to pay for a set. I dont have too much discretionary cash, so I was checking out a set of 729s laced to Hope II hubs for $350 from Chain Reaction. Im just looking for any feedback on this wheelset or advice on a different wheelset that might be better suited for me. Thanks in advance!

    Try flows laced to pro 2s.

    Had this exact wheelset on my Transition Blindside with DT 2.0 Champion spokes. Decently heavy, however very very tough. Unless you've had a history of denting or folding wheels, I'd opt for a lighter hoop.

    At 215, you should be ok on a set of flows, unless you're a point and plow type of rider.
