    My most recent and successful wheelset has been based on Sun Double Tracks. They have been on the bike for almost the entire season exept for one or two trips where I wanted different sneakers on, and they are holding up well beyond my expectations. I think they are the same extrusion as the Intense Mags. I got mine new from an eBay store for 50 bux or so.

    it pains me to say so, but i love my DX-32. i ride the 24" version, but damn it's a tough yet light rim.
    what would rainbow unicorn do?

    Double Track, Mag 30, MTX, Double Wide. All are strong enough for DH.

    Mavic Deetraks

    I used to have the WTB Dual Duty Wheelset and I used to break a spoke almost every 2 rides. Everytime I break a spoke I had the rear wheel professionally tensioned; but I still manage to break a spoke.

    With my Deetraks, that never happens. I've been using it for 3 months now and still is still like new

    Mavic 721's, light, strong, stiff.
    Tioga DH's, heavier, and not as stiff/strong, but they have the nice white stripe!
