    xt hubs?

    Going to be ordering up a rear wheel soon and would like to do it relatively cheaply. I can't commit to ordering an expensive rear hub. I was thinking about ordering a arrow racing rim with xt rear hub.
    I have seen the Arrow rims on my friends bike and they seem to be burly as hell. I am sketchy though on ordering it with a xt rear hub becuase it is signifigantly less than the other rear hubs I have priced. So, are xt hubs durable, easy to maintain, and built for someone around 200 pounds?

    I have also seen a company I have never heard from before Woodman that has sealed cartridge bearing hubs and wondering if anyone could recommend them, or tell me about them. http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...7&category=250

    My main concerns are attaining quality as cheaply as possible, and with as little maintenence as possible. The maintenence issue is very key because my experience mechanically with wheels/hubs is very little.

    Are there any other relatively inexpensive suggestions for rear hubs or even for rims that I should consider?
    My budget for a rear is about $150, I weigh 200 and do moderate downhill/trailride with almost no jumps/drops more than eight feet.

    Thanks in advance,
