Pinkbike Poll: Which of These 60 Notable Mountain Bikers Do You Recognize?
@mikekazimer: That's a great idea Kaz! It would be amazing to see if some of the old timers are still riding.

The best wheels around. Maybe 800 miles on them total. Normal wear and tear but overall great shape and ready to rip. Newer WTB tires included along with cassette and Shimano Icetech rotors included for asking price. Boost DT Swiss 240 Hubs 115mm front, 148mm rear. THE FUTURE OF GRAVITY. The quickest way to kill your adrenaline buzz on a shred-heavy day is by getting a flat tire, or worse, taco-ing your rim. With this in mind, the engineers at ENVE have been working away, delving deep into the science of the rim to create a carbon fiber rim that will allow you to charge to the max without compromising your ride with unnecessarily high tire pressure, heavy DH tires, and cumbersome inserts to reduce pinch-flats. We get to reap the fruits of the seeds they spent so much time sowing with the ENVE M735 29in Boost Wheelset. The M735 takes inspiration from its predecessor, the M70, but has been re-profiled to mate better with modern tires, so that they can absorb trail vibrations and withstand harder riding. Harder riding often involves heading into dusty corners at higher speeds, and nothing can spook you faster than an unexpected drift from running your tire's a bit too firm, so ENVE's designers took special care to redesign the rim so that it can be run at lower tire pressures that allow a better contact patch to the trail, keeping you connected even when the terrain is loose. Enabling these lower pressures, along with the reshaped rim, is ENVE's Protective Rim Strip that provides extended durability without the weight of a rim insert. The Protective Rim Strip improves impact resistance so when you inevitably blow through a tire on a drop to flat it doesn't mean your rim will be doomed, too. Like its predecessor, the M735 uses downhill-specific carbon laminates that come from the M90 line to give aggressive riders the confidence they need for dare-devil downhill stints, with the option to climb efficiently when your shuttle takes off for the day or the chairlifts close. The girthy rim-width of the M735 helps to increase this contact patch, with an inner rim width of 35mm that begs for a bigger tire, from the 2.5-inch wide-trail all the way up to a 2.8-inch plus tire. When combining the extra girth along with the redesigned, more robust rim design you to end up with a heavier wheel than the M70, coming in 128-grams heavier than its predecessor, but we're willing to forgive a little extra weight for a rim that can stand up to our gravity-hungry appetites. ENVE's designers utilize their Smart system to create tough, stable wheels for all riding condition. Using a patented process of molding in-spoke holes, valve stem holes, and nipple seats they earn ENVE's reputation for incredible strength-to-weight ratios. ENVE's carbon fiber is meticulously laid around each hole to maintain a continuous fiber, maintaining continuous fiber integrity, resulting in increased rim rigidity while keeping weight lower at the spoke face. When you lace this system up to a hub the result is a system that facilitates more uniform, and higher spoke tension than standard molding. In addition to their meticulous layup, ENVE uses a process that removes the inner bladder from the carbon fiber bolding, which results in lower weight compared to other composite manufacturers who leave the rim-molding inner bladder inside the rim when the wheel is complete. The tedious process of removing the bladder adds expense, but lands you with a lighter rim with superior weight distribution and perfect tension. Of course when we think of ENVE wheels our focus is on the rims, but it's worth thinking about the hubs we're laced up to, and ENVE doesn't sell you short with the DT Swiss 240. With Swiss precision engineering and machining, the 240 maintains its status as a legend among DT's hubs. The latest refinements of the 240 hubs leave them extremely lightweight and durable, with a ratchet system that propels you forward with little lag so there's no waste of power. This model uses boost spacing for stiffer tracking up front and more responsiveness in the back. The hubs and rims come together in Utah, where they are laced up to create an impeccable wheel with the longevity you expect from a class-leading wheel system.
