    Contact MikeSee on the boards here. He is a well known builder and also a clyde so he knows how to build the wheels for the like.

    Uh maybe talk to the guys over at BicycleWheel Warehouse. Their wheels get great reviews pretty consistently on both the mtb and road bike side.

    I bought these, only with a front hub setup for a fox fork. I hit jumps and ride hard but I'm only 172~ lbs. A narrow 19mm rim like the 719 may not be a good choice. Wider is better to resist bends. If your running a tire bigger then a 1.95 you shouldn't be using a 19mm rim. If you run a 2.1 to 2.2 you should be on a 23mm and a 2.3 or bigger you should be on a 25mm In my opinion. The wider rim will resist side bends just like a taller beam resists deflection better. SRAM X9 hubs are amazing how well the free spin. I would avoid Shimano XT hubs. Before you even mount them on the bike the don't free spin well. I Bought a set and sent them back when I saw that. I have heard good things about how beefy then 719 rims are though.

    I think the reality of 290lbs and riding hard is having to save up and get a good wheel like you want. Buying stock machine built is only going to leave you disappointed, especially at the $300 range.

    My .02 is keep what you have as far as the front and contact Mike for a rear wheel only. Then instead of spending $300 on an ok wheelset, you can spend $300 on a rear wheel that will get you what you want.
