    need a new wheelset with qr rear and 20mm thru front

    I need something cheap for an upgrade project. So far, it looks like blueskycycling has the best deal with their wheelset based on Mavic EN321 rims for $200. I think with tax and shipping I'm looking at $238

    Can anyone beat this deal? I would love to get a (new) set for $200 total, but am not sure it's possible.

    Help a brotha out!!

    I'm looking for a similar set.. 20mm front and 9mm QR rear. But my budget is around $500. Bikerbob gave me a good quote for a set of Stan's Arch EX29er's with Hope Pro 2 hubs. I haven't pulled the trigger yet because I still need to save up a little more.

    BWW would be more expensive than BluSkyCycling. At BWW you can put together the same wheel set I mentioned above, and it comes out to be much more than BlueSky.

    But are they hand built with quality DT spokes and nipples? The BWW ones are

    That's a pretty tall order man. You might call around to your LBSs. We have a few with 20mm front take-offs here that aren't selling. It's not as widely used as the 15 around here at least.

    Check out Chainlove. They are selling a really nice set of XT wheels for $250. Not sure though if they are 15mm or 20mm.

    Edit: they were the 20mm

    Here is a link to them for $280
