any suggestions? need to replace my back rim. have xt hubs and disc brakes. prefer to stay tubed, but would consider tubeless.
If you want to use some bigger XC tires such as 2.3's I would suggest Bontrager Mustang Disc but if you want something a little lighter and will not be using anything larger than 2.1's look at DT Swiss XR4.1D.

The Velocity is a good rim from reports that I have heard, and relatively cheap. I have been using the XC717 rim for the past 4 months and have had no dramas. If price is a concern, see if you can get some "run-out specials" on Mavic X317 rims, which as far as I know, are the same as the 717's, just the previous model. BTW, I used the 317 rims for two years prior to getting the new bike with 717's, and had no dramas.
