    New question here. Mavic XA vs Notubes MK3 (All Mountain / Enduro)

    I need to change the wheels from my Giant Trance 1.5 2016, I've two options in my local dealers:

    1. Mavic XA wheelset: 400
    2. DT350s + Sapim D Light + Notubes Flow MK3: 625

    XA have 30mm internal width and weights 1940grs
    MK3 29mm internal width and weights 1725gr

    Do you think option 2 deserves the 200 difference?

    Both ASTM 3, in theory it means jumps <= 60cm but sometimes I go to the bikepark and jumps ~120cm. Do you think that I need to worry about that? Or doing it occasionally and my little weight (67 kg) it's ok?

    Mavic are only 24h but if you get the 2019 version they have the ID360 hub, a DT Swiss style ratchet.

    You can't find a better deal than these on bike-discount.de?

    Don't buy from your local dealers. Those two options aren't very good options!

    DT rims on DT hubs would be good. Or DT hubs and mavic rims. Or really anything but Stan's rims or mavic prebuilts.
    WTB: Small aluminum hardtail 26 or 27.5 frame. Pm me!

    If you need 142/100 wheel the DT M1700 is 350 hubs with an EX series rim I believe. They are pretty cheap right now.

    At the end: DT EX 471, eixos DT 350, radis D-Light, caps DT Swiss Squorx Pro

    I doubt about putting an EX 511 on the front.

    I need to adapt my current QR5 back wheel to the a 142x42 hub. Do you know what I need to adapt it?
