In order to lighten my bike, I'm thinking of changing my wheels. My current setup is Mavic 819 tubeless laced to DT swiss 340 hubs. I don't like changing the tires with these wheels, it is very hard and annoying! Otherwise, I like them despite the fact that they are a bit heavy.
I'm 125 lbs and ride cross country, no drops/jumps, etc. unless an occasionnal 1 or 2 feet drop. Mainly xc riding, lots of roots and rocks and some flowy trails that just demands to ride hard without much obstacles in them.
I was thinking of getting Stans no tubes ZTR Olympic rims. What do you think of these rims?
Which hubs should I put on them? American Classic, DT swiss? Of course, cost is an issue so chris king and hope may be out of the questions (despite their cool look). I've also been told that there is another fabrican of hubs which makes hubs identical as American Classic but cheaper in cost. Don't know the name of the fabrican..
what are your input? I want the wheels to be light yet durable to witstant lots of seasons of xc riding and fun times
