Looking to build a wheelset for my new Jet9 build.
So far I have it down to Hope Pro2 hubs (ordered) laced to Velocity VXC rims but I am lost in relation to spokes.
The bike will be used for long distance rides and races.
I am 6'3" tall and weigh around 185lb.

Looking at DT Supercomps or maybe Sapim C-Xrays??
Any feedback on either of these for my purpose??
Any other lightweight options I should be looking at??

I'm running supercomps on VXC rims (laserdisc lite hubs instead of hopes, though) and am really happy with them. I'm 6'3 188#, so we're pretty similar. Flexing/tracking is all acceptable for me (your mileage may vary). Mine are on a single speed Jabberwocky, if that matters. I've had pretty good luck running the VXC's tubeless as well--with pythons, they've been flawless. Not so good with Kenda Klaws, though...

Good luck. the Jet9 will be my next ride :)
