I'm pretty sure that I want to go with a set of wheels from BWW, however I'm a little torn on the direction.
Bike: 2007 Mongoose Canaan Elite
Tires: IRC Mibro 2.25 front, IRC Mibro 2.1 back
Rider: Beginner/intermediate, 200lbs
Terrain: I live in the PNW and a lot of the trails I ride are fast and flowing. That said, I don't like to slow down a lot for obstacles, wheelie, bunnyhop etc. I don't really do much jumping, but I think it should hold up to 2-3' jumps.
I know that I definitely want to go tubeless because of the blackberry thorns we have in this area, however I have zero experience with tubeless systems. I feel I'm pretty aware of the different systems UST, ghetto stans etc. I'm not a fan of my current wheels as they aren't very stiff (WTB LaserDisc Lite)
Originally, I was thinking about the 719 with the BWW hubs and convert them to tubeless. I was thinking that it might be nice to have a bombproof wheelset that is going to take a lot of abuse as I really don't race. This lead me to look into the 819, but 2000g wheels on a 4in bike?
The BWW hubs and wheelset is very interesting because of the low weight, but I would have to convert them if I want to go tubeless and at their low weight, I'm a little concerned with durability.
I plan on calling BWW, but their number is not working. Any recommendations?
