    WTB SX-24 replacement wheel suggestions?

    So I just picked up a new to me Iron Horse Warrior 6.0 which happens to have a pretty well bent rear wheel. I want to replace this, but I am completely lost when it comes to the wheel choices out there.

    I weight about 220lbs and ride all trail with small rock gardens, some drops offs, and things like that. What would be a decent replacement for this that isnt going to break the bank. I dont feel like paying more for a set of wheels than I did for the whole bike just yet as I am still learning and building rider skill. Also, do I have to replace both front and rear and the cassette/disk brake as well or can I just swap the cassette/disk brake over to the new rim?

    The existing cassette and such should transfer over just fine right? I think I need a tool for this, but I am not sure which one is needed to remove the cassette, could you point me in the right direction for my bike?

    Lastly, do I need to swap out both front and rear or will it track just fine with different wheels and I can just replace the front if I want to later on?

    Yes the cassette and rotor will switch across. You need a chain whip and cassette lockring tool, along with a Torx T-25 for the rotor bolts.

    The hub is at least equal to your OEM hub and rim and spokes are a upgrade.
