    Need a Stiff Wheelset

    6' 1' 230 Lbs. I ride a Cannondale Rush 5 with the Lefty. I am looking to build a great set of wheels and would like to spend under $500 if possible. I ride CC singletrack in Nebraska so there are very few drops or rocks to contend with. What kind of a combo should I go with? Keep in mind my front hub is Lefty specific.

    Any input would be great.

    I've had *excellent* luck with Sun RhynoLiteXL (not the regular RhynoLite mind you). They are cheap (<$50) and I am heavier and do jump/huck on them. Hubs? I ride King and Hope. Kings with a stainless freehub are my fave and super burley. I've never had an issue with my Pro 2 bulbs from Hope though either and the rear is over $200 less than the King FWIW.

    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.

    Disciples Of Dirt, come ride with us.

    Not sure what your front hub options are with the Lefty, but I'm about the same weight as you and I love my CrossMax XLs. They are on a great sale at Performance right now:

    If you need a specific front hub, the rear only is also available.
