I'll keep this one short - I'm building wheels for my SS race rig. I have aquired my (pink) CK ISO SS hubs. I've decided to go with DT's new XR4.2D rims. All I have left is to pick out spokes. I'm torn between DT Competition 2.0/1.8/2.0's, or DT Supercomp 2.0/1.7/1.8's.
I'm 155-160 lbs. fully prepped. Wheels are going on a Salsa Juan Solo with '07 Hope M4's 185/160 rotors. I ride hard, fast XC - lots' of rocks, roots - very few jumps/drops.
So with that in mind - Competitions or Supercomps? And for the heck of it - alloy or brass nips? I am a little weight concious, but don't want a *weak* wheelset. Thanks for your help! And here's a picture of some of the parts I've obtained for reference - Nips in the picture are 2.0mm/14gauge, so they'd only be useful with the Competitions, however I'm not using that as part of my decision.
