    Goblin wheelset

    Can anyone offer advice on upgrading the Goblin wheelset on a budget? I'm 175 lb and go over rocky areas fairly regularly. Looking to shave weight, tubeless compatible, and go wider. I'm looking at Stans due to price/availability. Main question is what specs to look for used so they fit. I have the 2015 black Goblin (release before current). It looks like both wheels are quick release? So I can buy a used wheelset where both are quick release, 10 speed, disc brake? Also, any other tips?

    What is your budget?

    I roll Stans wheels on my Goblin, I have been on them now just over a few years and haven't had any issues. You are correct, you just need a QR wheelset, with SRAM/Shimano freehub, 6-bolt disc. Looking at PinkBike I see some nice take off wheels, but it will depend on your overall budget. I hope that gets you started in the right direction!

    Thanks for the help! That looks pretty nice. I may also look at wider rims. Does anyone know if a 30 mm internal width rim causes any clearance problems w the Goblin on 2.25-2.35" tires?
