    Looking for a wheelset

    Looking for a killer deal on a used UST disk wheelset, any pointers? Could be SS or cassette, no preference there as long as it's compatible with King and Boone cogs.

    Want to replace the RhinoLite/XT that I have with an UST set without breaking the bank.

    That's interesting but don't know if I'll be able to use my current cogs on the hub, also the disk adapter probably will not work on my Unit. Looking at the x3.1/XT set that Nashbar has at $199.99.

    Haven't determined if will be selling the RhynoLites.

    Shop around for the Mavic Crosslands. I have a set on my Surly and they are fantastic. You can usually find them at the on-line retailers right around that pricepoint you mention on the set from Nashbar.

    Thanks for the advise.

    I had so so luck with Mavic hubs. I used to ride XRocs and still use XMaxs on my SS and the freehubs are a POS, they need servicing at least once a year. On the positive side the XMaxs are very strong and can be abused and that's why I was considering the X3.1 (same rim as the XMax).

    What hubs don't need to be serviced at least once a year?

    I believet that the 3.1 is now the 819. That would be the same set up if you can find it. Those are solid hoops.

    aren't those non-disc? If they have disc is stock at that price, I might need to order a pair too!
