    Mavic 721

    Anybody have any feedback on these rims? I'm building new wheels for my Stinky D. I'm thinking about Hope Pro II/ Mavic 721. I use the bike for FR and Whistler. The stock wheels are ok, Sun S-Type, I want to shed a little weight and keep a strong wheel. I am not going to be taking any 10' jumps or anything, just fast flowing Dh runs, small drops and jumps. (cant afford to break the body)

    I have them on my bike laced to some Hadleys, and they are great rims. Withstand anything and save you a bit of weight over other choices like 729's or whatever... Definitely go with them.

    I have a wheel with a 721 and have really liked it so far. It is lighter than the 729, but if you are running bigger tires you may not like the tire profile with the narrower rim. I am using 2.35s on mine and must say that it is a very nice rim and the strength is there.

    I ran a 2.8 Nev for Mammoth last week on a 721 and the profile/setup in general was fine. Normally I run 2.5 Minons, both setups work well.
    I weigh 230 and don't feel like I have worry about the strength of the rims.

    I hear ya. I just tend to like a flatter tire profile. That is why I just got 729s for MY R9.

    I run a 721 laced to a Hadley and 2.5 rubber. Works great.
