    New rider, need help with choosing a new set of wheels

    Hey I bought a mtb years ago with the intention of getting into the sport but soon after got injured and have since not had a chance to get back on. But now I'm wanting to take it up again but I have a crooked rear wheel and tyre puncture,
    so am in need of a new set and though I would replace them both at the same time. I ride a Scott scale 40 (2009) pretty sure it's a 26" wheel.
    now I'm not looking for the most expensive wheel but I don't want the el cheapo that won't last. So any advice, brand to look for, things to look for, and general advice would be greatly appreciated

    thanks

    Look up StormMountainCyclery at EBay, they hand build their own wheels. I have a set, no problems with them whatsoever.

    Stans rims on hope hubs are pretty bombproof. It was my go to setup for a while before I had the upgrade itch.
