New 650b build, and nothing local to be custom built in a timely manner. I've found these online in stock for $700 USD. Wanted to know if I should consider anything else in the weight (1600g claimed) and price range: Emporia GA Performance | Gravel & Adventure Bike Wheels | HED

If it matters, prefer 6 bolt hubs, 160 pound rider, Cat 1, 70% gravel and tame singletrack.

FWIW, I ended up totally pleased with the 2021 Bontrager wheels on my Moots. The dealer and friend I trust sparked the interest via lots of good experiences with Trek post-sale support, price, best warranty, also assembled in USA and just being good wheels. They are "carbon" rims and I don't know if they have a 650B version. I did not look for them in 650B size after trying some 650B bikes. I can say the 25 mm inner width with trying 40 - 48 mm tires is great.
