    Alex rims/SRAM hubs - Good deal?

    Is $100 for this wheelset a good deal? Aftermarket 26" mountain bike disc brake wheel set rims

    SRAM 506 hubs (Joytech made) are a cup and cone design on the same level as Deore M525 hubs. If regularly maintained they will likely be long lasting. Alex makes good rims. The main downside I see is that these are almost certainly machine built so durability can be a question mark. For a small amount more you can get XT hubs on Sun rims with DT spokes...all hand built.
