yah i know, but in the end it would cost me more to build up a wheel set than to just buy a ready made one, like im thinking about deetraks, deemaxxs are too expensive for me

EDIT, I'll probebly look into building a wheel set too but i ust cant find any hubs that are decent and fairly reasonably priced, i would go with pro 2 on 721 off of chain reaction its just that they sold out of 721 and pro 2

mavic 721's are the shit. so light, so strong, so inexpensive. if you race dh get 721's. if you pair them with hope pro 2's, you get a really light and strong wheelset.
just be prepared to replace the rims seasonly
