I would Ideally like to get one of the new '05 Z1s for my '03 KHS FR 2000. You know: the new "dedicated axle" bolt-on Marzocchi system. Whats the best hub for those?

Or:
I might get the '04 Z1 Drop Off 1 with the regular drop outs and convert a 9mm shimano hub to bolt-on.

Wheel World has a set of Azonic disc wheels. Azonic discs and Azonic Hubs. It says the hubs can be converted to QR. That might give me more flexibility.

I have found no Azonic hubs here in the reviews. Azonic rims? Are these any good? Should I save up for Hadleys? Should I get a cheep set of Deore 525 wheels and convert both F and R to bolt-on?

Sorry for all the ?s. I'm new to this whole "sturdy hub" idea.

the Outlaw rim set is strong...the hubs are good too (great warranty...and you can't beat the price of 260 bucks

Uh oh Outlaws have ALLOY nipples!

I don't do aluminum nipples. Not even on my weight weenie hard tail. There is no way that I would buy a set of wheels just to spend an entire day swapping out 72 aluminum-collored alluminum nipples for nice black brass ones. Then, of course, I would never get them factory true again.

Those spokes look like 15 gauge to me. No one has acturally measured them yet.

I think I just go for some all-black Nashbar wheels with Deore 525s (built up just the way I like them with #32 14g black spokes and black nipples). I'll swap the fron QR axle to a 9mm bolt-on and the rear for a 10mm bolt on. I bolt the front to an '04 Z1 Drop Off 1.
