    Best Budget 27.5" Wheelset that supports XX1

    Prepping an Ibis Mojo SL for sale and want to switch over to 27.5" wheels to improve chances of selling for a respectable price. Any recommendations? Thinking of just grabbing an Arch EX wheelset, but wondering if there are better choices for the best return.

    Thx in advance!

    Why would a converted 650b bike sell better than a straight-up 26" bike, as it was designed? I'm not sure it matters, TBH (and I build/sell a lot of bikes).

    Seems as if anything with a 26" designation (aside from DH bike) is treated like a red-headed stepchild these days. The Mojo SL is a popular 650B conversion, so I figured that would be a smart move.

    might not be a bad idea, but even a cheap 3-400 whelset, plus two cheap tires and tubes, will the 650b conversion net you a minimun $450 return on the resale? probably not

    Not sure how much extra the xx1 freehub/driver is, but the pacenti TL28 wheelset is 350 shipped. I have it, and while they appear very nice, I have to wait for the snow to melt before I can put them through their paces.

    SPECIAL OFFER! Fully Built Pacenti TL28 Wheelsets - Only $349.95 - 29" or 27.5"
