New to the forum and I'm hoping I get some advice.

Bent a rear rim and I’m looking for some replacements:

Weight: 220
Riding Style: Not very hard, XC

Looking for budget wheels and considering:

Shimano LX WH-M565 wheelset at $189
Shimano XT M760 Wheelset w/ Mavic 717 Rims $209

Currently have LX hubs with unknown rims (Trek Swami or something like that).

Any yeas or neas? Other suggestions are welcome.

Ooooh, must be rim brake.

If you poke around you'll find wheelsets made from Rhyno Lite rims and XT M756 hubs for $150 or so. These would be an ideal budget rim/disc brake wheelset for a Clyde. I had a pair on my old hardtail and they ruled.
