    DT Swiss X430 worth rebuilding?

    Got the stock x430 rims on my 2007 Stumpy. I was looking at upgrade options and was wondering if it would be worth it to just get a good rear hub from ebay and replace with double-butted DT spokes (front and rear)? I think the stout front hub is pretty decent. I've got some play in the rear Shimano.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Have you adjusted your rear hub? Play simply indicates the cones need adjusting. While your at it, since they're 5 years old you should probably service them.
