I wouldnt get em

have a set built by CRC, you can get...

Pro2 hubs on MTX's for 233 quid
Pro2 hubs on Mavic 721's for 219 quid or on singletracks for the same price (if you want lighter wheels)

or if youre feeling like cronin
Pro2 hubs on Mavic 823's for 269 quid

The hope hubs will be way better and have better engagement, not sure how the rims are but the mavic 721's and singletracks are lighter. Singletrackss arent as strong though.

Personally i would have Pro2's on 721's

boykake, he has bulbs at the mo, just that the rear needs bearings like 6 months ago! so he dosent need pro 2,s unless hes minted like cronin, so yehh maybe some new rims and spokes and pay me to build em! so really the funn rims would hen be a good buy. dont know how much rims are spokes maybe 25 quid if horrible black, but would go with white rims, and a small fee for building them. snorted!

haha to the comments above lol
the funn decender rim is the same rim as the MTX.
Your best bet would be a mavic 729 i reken, an some new f*ckin bearings!!

the same, theyre both 39.99 off CRC

id still go for 721's, 24.99 a pop and still v.strong but a damn sight lighter.

Wish id got them over 729;s (although i cant fault my 729's, not a single ding or buckle)
