    Light Ali Express XD 29er wheels

    Iíve bought the Canyon Lux 6.0 and I love it but the DT-Swiss wheels weight 1900g.
    Iím mostly a roadie (raced MTB for fun in the 90ís) and Iím a weight weenie.
    Iíd to drop wheel weight without spending silly money.
    I saw the Hunt XC wide wheels at £400 and couldnít find much else.
    I decided to check ali express as itís a gold mine for road parts.
    Having never bought anything MTB related from there I wondered if anyone on here has any experience or recommendations?
    I know theres always a concern about the strength of these parts, Iíve been buying Chinese carbon road parts since 2008 and the only thing I had an issue with was a saddle rail.

    Iíve upgraded to Thompson carbon bars, a carbon saddle. I decided to begrudgingly add weight and try a dropper and Iím blown away. Theyíre amazing.

    Any other upgrades that anyone can think of that arenít too expensive Iíll take on board.

    Many thanks

    There's a good amount of info out there about Aliexpress wheels. A lot of them use the same molds as each other, and some are even the same profiles as well known rims. Picking the wheels comes down to finding the best reviews on quality and best customer service. It's not uncommon to crack a rim and have the seller disappear, so finding the supplier that's known to back up their work and respond to customers is important.

    I saw that thread but figured it was just on rims, not full wheels. Iíll check it out.
