I'm looking to rebuild an older 26" wheelset consisting of Chris King hubs, DT 15/17 spokes, and Mavic 217 rims. I've converted my UST 29er to tubeless, I want to do the same for my older hardtail, but I'm having a difficult time finding a rim that will work.

Anyone have any suggestions for a rim fitting the following requirements?

1. 26"
2. Rim brakes (v-brakes), not disk-only
3. UST (or TCS or other tubeless-ready) for use with UST-compatible tires, not a Stan's conversion
4. Lightweight, for XC

I figure to just switch rims and tires, and keep the hubs and spokes, unless there's a better idea.
