    Which budget 26 inch disc brake compatible wheel should I go for?

    I just warped my front wheel and I'm looking to get a new one and simply keep the same disc brake. Which of these options should I go for? Is there anything else in the super low end range that I should consider? Are the Shimano M475 hubs really that bad? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Wow, Crossride's for less than $60! Are they real? I just saw a set at an online shop for nearly $300.

    I put a set of these on an old XC bike years ago. They are still true and steady to this day. I would recommend them (assuming they're real and not knock offs). Mavic still supports them, as I converted the driver (XD to Shimano) a year ago.

    bikewagon.com had some nice 26" wheels available between $120-$250. Including a carbon Sram roam 40 if I remember correctly.
    where are you located? If you are any where near Northern California I have a spare WTB "Trail Disc" front wheel.

    Sun King Pin Shimano 26 wheel set

    Wheel Master 26" Alloy Mountain Disc Double Wall $71 (21mm internal - rear)

    WHEEL MASTER WHL FT 26x1.5 559x25 WTB STP TCS i25 BK 32 OR8 MT2100 6B QR BK 100mm DTI2.0BK $101 (25mm internal-front)

    The WTB should have a wheelset but I think it's about $300 so just buy them one at a time. WTB 25mm wheel has been great. 21 mm rear one so far so good, has handled a heavy bike with 8-10 inch drops, nothing too aggressive. They also have an $80 version but I mean...lol...pick your cheap wheel, not that the $80 is going to be 10 times better than $71.

    Most Crossrides sell for $200 so I'm pretty sure they are either fakes or used.
