I just bought a Yeti ASR-5 frame and have started the process of building it up. I've decided on most components but I haven't given a thought to the wheels yet.
On the riding spectrum of XC > Trail > All Mountain > Freeride, I'm in the XC/Trail area. I like climbing, so I'm always going to want something light. I'm not a jumper nor do I take big drops. At 47, I'm the guy for whom all those bypasses were built
The three initial options I came up with were:
Mavic Crossmax ST (1600g, $550)
DT Swiss x1600 (1620g, $600?)
Easton EA70 XT (1800g, $380)
I like the Crossmax solely because of the appearance and the weight. But I know there are LOTS of other options out there that I haven't considered.
I'm also planning to go with tubes but could be talked into tubeless.
Recommendations? Are there online retailers that consistently give good prices with lots of choices?
