I’m pretty sure my OEM rear wheel has taken about all the abuse it is going to take, having picked up another ding accompanied by a bad burp this morning. I’m on the hunt for a decently priced carbon (preferably) wheel set and wonder if anyone has gone down this road already. Can I get away with a 30mm rim, or am I better off going down to 27?

I bought race face arc 31s with hope pro4 hubs. They have been great so far. When I bought they were about 1200 built from fanatibike.

Well, turns out my wheel survived a day of downhill at Purgatory and a couple days playing around Durango, but all the same I will be looking to upgrade regardless if for no other reason than to get off that Novatec hub. My buddy was on his Release 5 which I comes with Arc 30s, so that answers my question. Interesting that you can go up to a 31 even!
