Looking to upgrade the original DT swiss m719 combo on my TB. I'm not a heavy rider at 150 lbs and am not doing drops to speak of, but New England trails are always technical with roots and rocks. I do notice what sounds like tire rub, which I have heard is likely do the flexy rear triangle? In light of this and clearance, how wide have others gone on rims/wheels? What have others been happy with on the wheel upgrades?

A couple months back I rebuilt my TN719/DT Swiss 350 wheelset with ArchEx Rims and original hubs. Noticeably, lighter and stiffer for me. I had a local shop do the rebuild with brass nipples and double butted DT spokes.

Cheers,
Mike

I have a Stans Crest wheelset on mine and I'm surprised at how well they are still running. I have never had any issues with them and I give them a lot of abuse more than you would think they were capable.
