I am looking to build a wheelset for my freeride bike and am trying to figure out what parts to use. I live in Whistler and ride the mtn bike park, and local trails. Weight is a big consideration- would like to run UST - as is durability and maintenance. I am thinking either CK, Hadley, or DTSwiss, for Hubs. I was thinking about the Sun Mag 30 rim, anyone have any suggestions?

Rims

Mag 30's arn't UST, to get that you need to use EX823s.

Any of the hubs listed are a good choice, and I'd reccomend DT Alpine 3 or Competition spokes - my new DH race wheels will have DT Aerolites, but these are race wheels.

I like these.....

Hugi FR (super Uber) alpine lll`s laced to mavic 729`s. of course not ust but a super reliable set of wheels. because of spoke length availability my builder set me up with a 4x setup. i originally spec`d a 3x, but to my suprise these wheels are stout and actually light in the hand(sorry didnt have a digi-scale handy). I`ll try to post a pic, hopefully make you drool........theres alot of rims i want too try in the future. the mag 30`s are sweet looking as well as the atom labs trailpimps. but this was a complete bike build and i needed verstility for tire size and wanted reinforced brass or steel eyelets the 729`s were given the nod for my first setup. now i can run my k-rads or my mobsters(havent tried, but willing to throw some slicks when i want to hang with my friend on the road) imagine that, a FR tank on the road LMAO.......................................ghost
