    best wheelset for DH and FR

    wheelset including rim spokes and REAR hub.
    i have this urge to get a loud DT SWISS. is it better to buy a hub then lace it or buy a complete wheelset. ( i know chris kings are the gods of hubs but i dont have that much money for them)
    becuase i am going to buy a new frame ( hopefully trade with roachcoach's eliminator for my dr1!) my hub is 150mm and wont fit on the eliminator.
    i have a rear profile racing 150mm hub laced to a mag 30. how much do you think i can get for it? hopefully it will cover for a new wheelset?
    thanks

    Don't waste your money on one of those fancy hubs, they might look nice or sound nice but they are just a great way to flush your hard earned money down the toilet. You can get a much better wheel for the money buying complete.

    You need some serious help if you buy a wheelset because of how loud the hub is...

    Do you have a budget??? That makes a huge difference.

    Prebuilt I like the DeeMax's.
    If weight is not a concern and you're trying to keep the cost reasonable, the Azonics are fine...maybe the 48 spoke Halo Combat SAS's.

    IF your building a wheel then pick a hub you like...even if it has to be a loud one, and find a rim to suit your riding style. Mavic is usually my first choice. EX823...721...or XM321...or even the tubless XM819. I just built myself a set of 321 around some Saint hubs.

    i actually have no money, im planning on selling my 150 mm profile racing hub laced to mag 30's. how much do you think i can get, and whatever rim i get ( doubletrack, outlaw) will it cover it. the reason why im getting an ew hub is because the new frame i will get is 135, not 150.. its to wide.
    how much are the halo rims. are those the ones that are white?

    Not if you have your own WHEEL GOD on hand to lace your wheels for you
    my buddie has been building ny wheels for years, and he is a true artist with a wheel.

    wait a minute ! you hope to sell a used wheel for enough to cover the cost of a new wheel ? Good luck ! But I'd bet you aint going to get much of a wheel !

    Was wrong with the profile/mag 30 ? sounds to me like your going to be down grading bro !

    I think that the loco wheels are on sale at performance bike shops right now, Think like $80 for a rear.

    and i answered one of my questions, on santa cruz website, the vpfree DOES allow 150mm hubs! so i can keep my rear wheelset. only if i can get this vp-free.

    The Super T you have is really a very good fork. I'd take that fork over a Fox 40 or a Boxer unless i was entering a fashon contest instead of a race
