Looking to update the wheels on M9 but keeping the same hubs.

Currently on there are 26" Mavic 823's, but since the M9 can take a 27.5 wheel I'm wondering what's available now, rim wise, that is the equivalent to the good ol 823?

The 729 is available in 650b, personally I think mavic is no longer relevant and your money is better spent elsewhere.

FR570 is a pretty solid option.

Yeah I'm definitely not looking to stick with Mavic. And the 729 seems pretty freaking heavy.

Wish I could have nabbed them on the CRC sale.

Yes you can, but there are a bunch of 26” forks in the buy and sell section.

Do Mavic still shear at flanges and split rimage

Wouldn’t touch Mavic factory wheels with a poo stick even

Though I have their rims on a new to me bike to find out if the rims will split at the seams lol

That’s good then as Their rims on own are far superior than that of their factory built wheel sets this I know

That’s all I need to know

Can you expand on that a bit?

Basically Mavic has fallen behind in MTB and didn't catch up.
You can get much better value for your money with DT Swiss, Spank or Stans..

sup guys!

I'm in search of a good dh flat pedal below $100, I'm currently riding a large stamp7, have ridden stamp 3 and did not like them.
I tend to move my feet a lot and the pins make it very difficult to adjust them, I feel like a fish outta water if I don't feel the pedal underneath the ball of my foot. I wear a five10 freeride size 9.
I would appreciate if you guys can give me suggestions, thanks!
