Sixth Element 27.5+ Carbon Wheelset - Review
@markg1150: Whereas i've broken more carbon rims in the last 2 years than my entire cycling history.... For hard charging racers, carbon wheels are hilariously unreliable IMO. Most people I know have wrecked multiple sets.

Sixth Element 27.5+ Carbon Wheelset - Review
It's not a black & white opinion of 'higher performance'. There are plenty of people out there who have ridden carbon wheels who don't like a lot of the 'qualities' that are sold as performance gains. I for one, would rather pick a decent aluminium wheelset over carbon. Comparable weight, comparable width, better ride quality (IMO) and stronger (based on my experiences). But then I don't have a vested interest in purchase justification towards a set of carbon wheels.

Yeti SB5.5 - Review
I wonder if they actually weighed it, or just took it for granted from Yeti. Either way, I want borrow their scales. ;)

DT Swiss XM1501 wheelset

$350 GBP
For sale, as I have moved to a 29" bike now. Condition is good overall, usual scrapes on the rims from rocks etc, but both wheels are straight and true. No dents or dings, come taped already with DT Swiss tubeless tape. Set up currently as a 15mm front & 142x12 rear. Also currently has a SRAM XD Driver, but you can have it with a standard DT Swiss Shimano/SRAM freehub if you prefer. Crazy light at sub 1600g, yet typical DT Swiss reliability. Great set of wheels.

Pinkbike Poll: Why Do You Trail Build?
I build - my local spot has a lot of old trails that have falling into disrepair, so if I want to ride there & ride fun stuff, I have to get on with it. Sometimes progress is slow & sometimes you hit dead ends, but it's nice to create a trail. Nothing like this in the video though - my local woodland doesn't exactly have the terrain for it!
