    Lightweight 20" 9/10/11 speed wheels for a kids build

    What wheels have you had good success with? For my hotrock build I'm considering these from AliExpress:

    Thoughts?

    I'm assuming you're looking at the 406 BSD rims with the 135mm disc brake hubs...why not just get some Shimano XT hubs laced to Sun Envy rims? Sometimes piece of mind, quality control, and customer support are worth a few more dollars.

    To get something even vaguely close to the same weight the cost of the spokes and build before the rims and hoops would be more than these wheels cost. At 39 lbs i'm not concerned that she is going to blow them up. I'm not willing to drop 3-4x the money to have XT and Envy...

    Thanks for the offer - I've got the Ali Express wheels on order. I'll post up once I have them in hand.

    How did the wheels turn out?

    I bought this exact pair of wheels from Aliexpres and few months ago. They're awesome and light. Perfect for kids. Zero problems. Rims are pretty narrow but, I managed to set them up tubeless.
