    Mavic Enduro vs XTR

    Tine for a new wheel set. Thinking of either Mavic Enduro or building up XTR hubs on Mavic 817(i think) rims. I ride mostly in Florida and 3-4 trips a year to north Georgia and Tennessee to ride. No free ride. Just aggresive XC. I weigh about 200lbs so they need to be strong, but would like light and great quality.

    Open to any other suggestions. Got about 500 to spend. Going on my Specialized Epic.

    You mean 819 right?
    The 819 and the Crossmax Enduro use the same rim.
    How about Crossmax XL's or DT rims with your choice of hub?
    The XL's cost more than the Enduro's but are lighter.
    You could probably go with the SL's too if you stay mainly on the ground or if you're looking for lighter weight.

    Why XTR?
    I would look at Hadley, Hope or Hugi/DT hubs too.

    I just rebuilt my front and rear XTR hubs. After taking the cassette and rotor off, the rebuild took about 10 minutes max (including rotor and cassette reinstall). I still like loose ball bearings over cartidge units....

    I would pair up the new DT 4.2 with the XTR hubs you already like.

    I would run Shimano hubs exclusively, if they would ever build a tough, quick-engaging freehub mechanism. Their ball bearing system is the best.
    The drive towards achievement and success is the motive power of civilization.
