    26" wheelset

    I have a 2004 rockhopper. For most of its life i have taken poor care of it. Now that I'm older and more responsible i have been repairing and maintaining it properly. I recently invested in a new fork (manitou match comp 100mm, not yet installed). Now i am exploring a Wheelset too. If anybody has any recommendations i would greatly appreciate it. Price range around $100. I am relatively new to bike repair and maintenance. The local steam punk bike mechanic has not been useful...so hopefully i can get some helpful advice here.

    $100 isn't much, but here is an entry level wheelset that can be used for rim or disc brakes. It's heavy but should be durable.

    Hey thanks for your input..i have a low price range because i don't wanna overspend when my bike was originally bought for $440. I figure i should keep it budget best as possible, otherwise i should have just bought a new bike. Thanks again for your recommendation.
