Currently I have a 2011 Trek Fuel EX8. It has the stock bontrager duster wheels with shimano 525 hubs. I am concidering either upgrading my wheels or picking up a 29er HT like a Trek Superfly elite or Cannondale F29-2 to up my speed/efficiency. The wheels I am looking at are Stans either crest or arch ex. I weigh about 165lbs with gear. I ride single track mostly XC nothing too technical or drop offs. What can I expect for a difference over my duster wheels. The shimano 525 hubs dont seem to freely spin as well as i would think also. I have yet to damage my duster wheels.
