Hi guys,

I'm running Mavic Deemax rims laced to Hope Big 'Un hubs on my Diesel.
I like them but I don't think I need the overbuilt and heavy wheelsets.
I'm fairly light at 148 lbs w/o gear and very easy on my bike.
So I decided to build new light weight tubeless wheelsets.
These are the parts I have on my mind so far.

Hope Bulb hubs (or Chris King) / Mavic XM 819 Disk rims / DT Competetion 1.8/1.5 spokes

Do you guys think these are the right choices for a light guy?
Which hub out of those two would you recommend?

Any input would be appreciated. cheers~

Stan's ZTR Freeride rims (notubes.com) and Hugi FR hubs. The ZTR FR rims are lighter (545g) and stiffer than a Singletrack but both can be easily set up tubeless. Both rims are 32mm wide.
