    Is this a good deal?

    I'm trying this again, since I royally screwed up when I posted this yesterday. JensonUSA has a Mavic XC717 wheelset with Hope XC hubs for $284. Is this a good deal? I am a Clydesdale (215) and ride fairly tame XC: roots, ruts, logs but no big drops.

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    yup...

    considering the hope xc hubset retails for about $200, a complete hand-built set with wheelsmith db spokes and 717 rims is a great deal.

    it cost me about $280 to built my real disc front, hope xc rear/dt supercomp/sun ufo wheels. they weigh about 1750g so the weight at jenson's site looks about right.

    also, just relubed my hope xc rear hub two nights ago, it was hella easy and you can tear apart the entire hub with no special tools (you'd only need a soft punch, hammer and screwdriver).

    cheers!
