    Which wheel and hub?

    Somewhere throughout the weekend, I broke the hub on my kona stuff. The wheels been bent to hell, just put off replacing it. I have a shiman deore hub and rhyno lite wheels. I've broken both of these before, so I need something beefier. To top it off, I'm suppossed to ride in boone this weekend, and need parts by thursday. Any suggestions?

    Double tracks are heavy as hell, but they are bombproof. maybe try a mavic ex729, atomlab pimps are pretty nice. Some people have had good luck with sun MTX's, but I haven't.

    Mag 30's are the same thing as double tracks, only more expensive I think.

    I love my atomlab pimps. Great rim with torque nipples.

    right now I'm running deetracks for DH and FR, really an amazing wheelset. look cool as hell too. the double tracks are pretty nice as well. get something beefy and dont worry about weight
