    Wheel upgrade/weight reduction

    I have been riding my Trek EX6 for a bit now and notice that my ride is suffering on the climbs which gets me thinking about doing some weight reductions in my wheels. The bike came with pretty much base model Bontrager AT-850s which are pretty heavy. I ride alot of XC as well as some rugged downhill after the climbs out here in SoCal so I don't want to sacrafice weight for longevity. Does anyone have any suggestions for some 26" disk wheelsets?

    since you didnt give your weight, tire preference, hub configuration, heres a list

    mmx if your under 130lbs, ex1750 if your over 200 lbs and crossmax if your in between

    Wheel upgrade/weight reduction

    Sorry, I'm 6' and 180lbs. I like running tubes and don't really have a hub preference as long as it will fit my EX6 and has a XC style to it.

    Thanks for the info. I am not sure how I feel about used wheels but I will keep these in mind.
